Property's Favourite Review
This is my second visit to FdS and we’ve already booked for next year. It is a high quality boutique hotel, beautifully decorated and equipped, in an excellent location only a short walk from the centre of this stunning small town. As in any service business the staff are absolutely key and this is where FdS scores highest - Stanley and his team of ladies are outstanding, they are charming, efficient & attentive. I’d have no hesitation recommending this if you want great accommodation in Franschhoek without the noise of the centre of the town nor the glitz of some of the more flashy hotels.

Amazing experience with the owner, staff, and accommodations. The food at breakfast was as good as I’ve ever had at a BnB and the room stunning. If you are looking to experience downtown Franschoek, it’s only a few minutes walk away. I highly recommend!

Southport, Connecticut6 contributions2 helpful votes
Well…. We booked this for a small Wine lands break as part of a larger SA visit.. There were quite a few places to choose from but we liked the look of Fleur de Soleil. So glad we did. From the moment we booked we were welcomed as special guests. Useful information came flooding in as well as a very warm welcome from the owners (Anton) at Tamu hospitality. They offered all kinds of information from logistics to local tour info etc. Every question was answered promptly and was very informative. We ended up up booking transport and wine tours through them. Drivers were fantastic and very knowledgeable. So when we arrived, we were welcomed by the Manager, Stanley. Stanley was great as were all the staff there. The guesthouse was in pristine condition with all the facilities you would expect. Pool and surrounding area was lovely and the breakfast delightful and very well presented. Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. I cannot recommend Fleur de Soleil enough. You will not be disappointed. If we end up back in the Wine Lands, this will be our ‘go to’ place.

5 stars may not be enough to rate this experience. My husband and I arrived at the beautiful Fleur du Soleil in the Franschoek Valley and was warmly welcomed with champagne and the friendliest of staff. The attention to detail is impeccable, be it culinary, exterior and interior decor and every interaction. Anton is a true master of the art and he even got us out of a pinch when we needed to be picked up after a day of delicious wine tasting 😊. The stay was memorable and we will certainly return to this ultra chic and beautiful guest house.
