Was so nice to spend some sunny winter afternoons on the farm enjoying the beautiful settings, tennis court, river and mountain views! The location at the end of the valley is truly special and the accommodation was excellent (the wooden fire was critical as it was so col in the evenings!)
To start with the location is fabulous, you're literally on the vineyard at the foot of the mountains. The views are incredible and the smell of the lavender right outside your door is heavenly. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and are luxurious and yet comfortable and inviting. Everything is of very high quality and it's obvious that great care and effort has been put into everything and all the little details that matter so much. We were met by Angela who was lovely and welcoming and shown to our room, in which we immediately felt at home. There's a huge, comfortable bed, chic furnishings and a large patio where we can sit and enjoy a morning coffee or an evening drink. The bathroom is also large and very well appointed, we loved the his and hers sinks but didn't use the bath, favouring the large shower. The supplied toiletries were very nice and the towels were luxurious and plentiful. The property is a short walk from the town itself, meaning you can enjoy the excellent restaurants and bars without worrying. We took a wine tasting tour and when I asked to book a taxi Angela even offered to drop us off herself, which gives you and idea of how well you are treated here. Breakfast was tasty and cooked to order with a great buffet selection and everything you could want. Coffee in the room was good and there was a great selection of teas and drinks in the mini bar. All of the amenities were very good and you relly do have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Overall this is a great place to chill out and relax, there's loads to do in and around Franschhoek but it's wonderful to return "home" at the end of the day and sit on your balcony watching the fantastic scenery. Truly a little gem of a property!…
A wonderful stay in a beautiful house, surrounded by the most spectacular views you have ever seen. Angela is a gregarious host, everything you need is at hand, one of the best places I have stayed, My husband turned 50 and Angela ensured that we were welcomed with balloons and wine. I highly recommend Auberge and we will definitely be back.
This is certainly one of the best places we have ever stayed. Half our family were in the self-catering villa and others in the guest house. Both were exceptional. We lacked for nothing and the property, both in and out, is so beautifully and tastefully appointed and maintained. Any requests we made were attended to straight away and the staff went the extra mile for us all. We would love to go back.
We had a wonderful time. The owner was so wonderful and upgraded us to the honeymoon sweet. Amazing privacy and the most beautiful place right by the main road but still completely tranquil. Already been twice cant wait for my third visit.
