Maps Room


Full property description

The Map Room is an uplifting, charming cottage, on the last remaining dirt road in Franschhoek, that brings a little New York cool to the pretty heart of the winelands.

Left of the entrance a spiral staircase ascends through the ceiling, with the bedrooms spreading over the ground floor. The master suite with its huge bed, inventive use of milk pails, faded safari chairs, open bath of sultan-pleasing proportions and en-suite wet room. But upstairs is where it all happens as you emerge through the floor into a wonderfully sociable living and kitchen area.

Fold open the glass-panelled doors, park yourself on the terrace with a glass of wine and gaze out over the vineyard and the rugged mountain views. It has all this and yet is only a three minute stroll to the main street and it's collection of award-winning restaurants.

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.

Chic cafes and bistros make for popular lunch spots and there are ample shopping opportunities to enjoy as well when not visiting the many excellent Franschhoek wine estates, old and new that offer superb wine tasting experiences, as well as also often catering to visitors for lunch and dinner.
