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