The restored manor house and former perfumery dating back to 1890, is situated on the outskirts of the village and is surrounded by enchanting vineyards and majestic mountains. An hour's drive from Cape Town makes it the perfect getaway for anyone visiting the Western Cape.

The Country House and Villas offers 14 luxury rooms and 12 new Villas Suites. All the rooms offer features and facilities expected of a first class hotel. Almost all rooms lead out onto private balconies or private patio with magnificent views.

A complimentary sherry can be enjoyed in one of the guest lounges alongside a crackling log-fire, creating a welcoming atmosphere in winter.

The new Villa Suites are very luxurious, are each a 100sqm in size and boasts a fireplace, dvd player, individual satellite tv, 2 airconditioners, 2 balconies, and many more unexpected luxuries!

During summer, guests laze at one of the two pools (one heated) with beautiful mountain vistas, visit the boutique wine-farms in Franschhoek, or stroll in the charming town found by the French Huguenots.

The in house Monneaux restaurant, voted as one of South Africa's Top Restaurants, has become known for its innovative Modern French Cuisine, prepared with fresh, well sourced ingredients and is exquisitely presented.

A-la-Carte lunches are served on the magnificent new fountain terrace whilst dinner is served in the understated, yet elegant, dining room or enclosed verandah. The wine list emphasizes local wines that can also be enjoyed by the glass in the cozy wine bar or underground cellar.

Franschhoek Country House and Villas is situated on the R45 route, 1 km before the main town of Franschhoek.
