Must visit

Review by Terry (San Diego)

We have been returning every year. Visit family in the city and then we spend a few days in the Winelands, notably, franschhoek. it should be on any travelers itinerary to spend a few days here absorbing the history, the ambience, the fresh air, the sophisticated wineries and the restaurants that never disappoint. One day we might just retire here. 😉

Must visit

Review by Edwin Spiers (London, UK)

This should be an absolute must on any travellers agenda! We booked a two week stay and I admit we did some trips into Cape Town but mostly we explored the surrounding countryside and spent most days in Franschhoek itself because there was so much to do. It was our first visit but won't be our last - still lots more wineries to go to!!

Be prepared to put on weight - so many good restaurants in Franschhoek you're bound to come home heavier. haha

Try to attend one of the wonderful classical music concerts at La Motte, and the Classic Music festivals which Christopher Duigan organises in Franschhoek twice a year, with non-stop concerts over the weekend!! Its such a great vibe!

Review by John (Cape Town)

A great place to visit, especially if you are a food and wine lover like myself. Nice to visit for the day although a longer stay would also be worthwhile.

Review by Sarah (Cape Town)

I adore a little visit to Franschhoek, if it is just for the day to enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the fantastic restaurants, a cheeky weekend breakaway or wine tasting with friends - it is always a memorable experience. If you haven't been, you should make a plan to get there soon.

Review by Stephanie (Cape Town)

Franschhoek is possibly my favourite weekend-away spot. It's just 45 minutes drive from Cape Town to the country and what gorgeous countryside ... mountains, vineyards, sublime restaurants and wine estates ... need I say more? A must visit!

Great place

Review by Helen (Cape Town)

I love Franschhoek! Whether its during the hot summer months, the chilly months of winter (you're sure to spot snow-capped mountains), for a al-fresco leisurely lunch or to join in the Bastille Day festivities its always a great place to visit. It really is a quick drive from Cape Town ... but you could be a world away.
