We stayed at this most beautiful property in order to tour the Franschhoek region. What a great decision ! Villa was so beautiful, great architecture, lovely features such as heated floor, huge slipper bath, and wonderful bed. Location was perfect. We dined in Monneaux restaurant several nights....a very wise decision...choices, quality, presentation and setting...and adjacent to the villas as well. What was spectacular was this comment from one of the Mangers..."Our Owner treats us as family, and this in turn enthuses us to be the very best in performing our jobs. We find it to be very appreciated psychology"...wow...how many times has one heard a statement this powerful ? More importantly...it shows.

The hotel on 1st impressions is very beautiful set in lovely grounds with stunning views. The rooms an 'old style' which is great if thats your thing? Not ours unfortunately. The we come to the real point that has given the review title, the water in the rooms were in 33cl bottles i used 8 a day as did my wife. Where are the glass refillable bottles; guys we are in the 21st century now. All the bathroom toiletries were also all single use. A lot more could be done to solve this that are an easy fix. The staff were really pleasant and the shuttle service is brilliant, although we felt very safe.

What an amazing place so peaceful and beautiful. The hotel offers a shuttle service from the hotel to Franschhoek which is booked via WhatsApp. Staff very friendly and helpful breakfast was amazing with a wonderful choice of hot and cold dishes. We didn’t eat in the hotel on an evening so cannot comment on the food the villa was so beautiful and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. The wine tram is so much fun and a must do . Thanks for a wonderful three days

We returned to FCH & Villas with friends purely because of our experience previously pre-covid. It was exactly as we remembered with friendly helpful staff, tastefully decorated rooms, a wonderful breakfast with an equally wonderful restaurant located on the premises and great facilities. We only stayed 2 nights which is not long enough to really appreciate FCH, but that was all our time constraints would allow, and one of the things that makes FCH a great place to stay is the free shuttle service that is available through WhatsApp to make it easy to enjoy the wineries, restaurants etc., without using a car. I'm sure that a 3rd visit will be made at some point in the future...

The ambiance of the venue is like if you are somewhere in France, full of character, peace and tranquillity. The reception is friendly and helpful, just what to expect from 5 star hotel. We stayed in ‘n villa which was absolutely luxurious and very characterful decorated with all the facilities and luxuries you can imagine. Both breakfast and dinner in the restaurant was amazing and is one of the best we had experienced in Franschoek. Service was excellent and good variety of choice. This was our second stay in a year’s time and can recommend to anyone who want to experience a little French flair.

Arrived here after just four days in South Africa, met by friendly staff, helpful, informative and they couldn't have done more of they tried. Our room was superb, a large room with a balcony overlooking the swimming pools. It was clean, comfortable and exceeded our expectations. We made use of the pools, one heated , one not, both were clean and lovely, towels and drinking water available poolside. Situated just outside of town , we asked about a taxi , and were informed that they had a shuttle bus and would take us into town and when we wanted to come back they would collect us! An absolutely wonderful idea, and it was free of charge. Could have stayed longer, but had to move on!

Enjoyed a 2 night stay here as part of our 20th wedding anniversary trip. Extremely friendly / helpful staff We had a villa which was huge and defo ticked the box Great breakfast served on the veranda overlooking the gardens - choice of freshly cooked hot food to order, plus cereals and pastries etc They offer a complimentary car service to drop you off in the centre of Franschhoek or at nearby restaurants. Couple of pools in the grounds which we enjoyed as it was 36c Defo recommend this a place to stay whilst wine tasting in the region.

My family had two nights here, and I so wish we'd had more. Everything about Franschhoek Country House and Villas was lovely. The rooms were gorgeous. The food was fantastic. The staff are absolutely top notch (extra kudos to Lisette who is a gem!) We had a 7-month old baby with us, and everyone went out of his/her way to help us with anything needed. They provide so very many thoughtful touches. Really, I cannot recommend the Country House highly enough. We would absolutely stay here again when we next return. It truly was perfection!
