Akademie Street is an absolutely fantastic way to experience the ambience and feel of Franschhoek and true South African hospitality. Between the accoutrements befitting a 5-star stay (excellent linen, Charlotte Rhys toiletries, outstanding DVD collection...) and the wonderful hospitality of Katherine and Arthur, it leaves very little to be desired for. Akademie Street offers privacy and your own space within...

My partner and I stayed in Oortuiging, one of the three Akademie Street Guesthouses in Franschhoek, over a rainy weekend, and we simply didn't want to leave. This historical cottage has a wonderful atmosphere and is in immaculate condition, sensitively restored and very comfortably furnished. The garden is an absolute treat and like the interior, in tip-top condition. It is...

We recently spent three nights at the Akademie Street Guesthouse in Franschhoek, Western Cape, South Africa, and we can not praise it highly enough. If you are looking for a quiet, first class retreat in the Food and Wine Capital of South Africa, look no further. There are 3 separate cottages. We stayed in the Oortuiging which is a two-bedroom,...

After a long drive arriving in the beautiful town of Franschoek was a relief. We picked a guesthouse at random from a south african travel guide and rang. From then on we felt like royalty - the directions, reception, rooms (with a small bottle of 'bubbly' on arrival) could not be faulted. Advice on restaurants in the area were extremely...

We stayed in Oortiging for three nights in late March and found the cottage to be of the highest quality. Every possible detail is taken care of -- even including an apron in the kitchen! Lovely art covers the walls and the decorating is charming. The breakfasts, served by friendly owners Katherine and Arthur, are a gourmands dream. The real...

My husband and I stayed two nights at Akademie in the end of March 2007, and we really loved it! We stayed in Vreugde, which is the smallest of the three houses. For My husband and I, it was perfect. It was a quite big room, with a nice bed, a small kitchen with fruits, water, juice, wine and chocolate...

We stayed in "Oortuiging" for two nights in late March. The place is wonderful - located conveniently for Franschoek main attractions yet on a quiet and pleasant street. Beautiful private garden, own terrace and plunge pool, lovely house. The latter is large, full of authentic features yet all the mod cons are there (in excellent condition!); everything was spotless clean,...
