Enjoy your own corner of France among the verdant slopes of the Cape winelands in the Franschhoek Valley. Discovered by the Huguenots over three hundred years ago, Franschhoek has continued their tradition of fine cuisine, outstanding winemaking and warm-hearted hospitality. Here you will find mountains laden with vineyards, old Cape Dutch style architecture, several of South Africas Top 100 nominated restaurants and exceptional Franschhoek hotels, auberges and guesthouses. The village is riddled with interesting shops such as arts and crafts stores, coffee shops, fromageries, a chocolate factory, and purveyors of antiques. Wine tours are all the rage here and small boutique wineries offer a personalised experience for those wanting something a little less mainstream, while the larger establishments offer organised tours and formal tastings of their well-known brands. In Franschhoek, food and wine combine with great scenery to provide unforgettable experiences such as horse riding, cheese and chocolate tastings, picnics, spa treatments, walking trails and trout fishing, along with the onsite facilities provided at your hotel of choice.
