The Franschhoek Retreat - 5 Star

The Franschhoek Retreat is an exclusive 5 star historic residence in the heart of Franschhoek’s village, the gourmet capital of South Africa. It’s only a minute’s walk from the many excellent award-winning restaurants and numerous character-filled boutique style shops and art galleries.

The magnificent Franschhoek valley offers world-class wine estates, tastings and cellar tours nestled between towering mountains and beautiful vineyards and the picturesque traditional French village hosts some of the best cuisine from internationally recognised gourmet chefs. Of South Africa’s top ten restaurants, three are in Franschhoek and there is a choice of more than 30 different places to wine and dine.

The valley is also the idyllic setting for walking trails, hiking, cycling, bird watching, horse riding and fly-fishing. Golfing enthusiasts are well catered for with several championship golf courses close by.

Beautifully restored in the Cape Huguenot tradition, The Franschhoek has been designed with sumptuous home comforts creating an elegant, sophisticated interior with a handsome mixture of classic and contemporary furnishings. A wooden decked balcony affords spectacular views across the mountains, the perfect spot for a sundowner or just relax around the private pool.

There are six luxurious rooms, three superior doubles which open onto private patio gardens and three suites with separate lounge areas. All have large en-suite bathrooms.

Breakfasts are a speciality offering a wide choice of interesting fare and are inclusive, as are all beverages. Dinners and lunches are available by arrangement. An in-house chauffeur service is available to guests for restaurant transfers or tailored tours to the highlights of Cape Town.
