Area description

Franschhoek is a pretty and historic village at the heart of the Cape Winelands just an hour and a half's drive from Cape Town. It is rightly known as one of South Africa’s culinary hot-spots, with numerous regular winners of top SA restaurants awards lining its one main street or perched on the lofty mountain slopes of this narrow valley with majestic views all around.
