Le Ballon Rouge is a stylish and highly individual Guest House created by people with a passion for travel for people who are travelling.

Start your day with a freshly prepared continental or cooked breakfast served at your leisure in either the courtyard & gardens or in the dining room.

Relax in style in our private courtyard & gardens or by our resident`s only swimming pool, having explored the many and varied local attractions.

Recline & unwind in one of our comfortable & elegant lounges, or enjoy sundowners on the veranda watching the spectacular sunset over the Franschhoek mountains.

Occasionally the owners will choose to cook dinner & will invite guests to dine with them as an alternative to dining out.

Indulge yourself with an early evening aperitif before dining at one of the many restaurants in the village, or a night-cap on your return in our fully licenced bar, which offers a good variety of local wines, beers & cigars.

Franschhoek is ideally located for exploring the Western Cape with it`s breathtaking scenery and winelands, and being only 45 minutes by car to Cape Town and its international airport.

Please note: Children under 12yrs old is not allowed.


The Franschhoek valley offers all visitors an amazing variety of activities and experiences from the sheer enjoyment of the breathtaking scenery to fly fishing, horse riding, wine tasting and of course, world renowned restaurants.

We are happy to make table reservations for you at any restaurant of your choice. Please note that in season restaurants can book up weeks in advance, so early bookings are essential.
