Romantic holiday of a lifetime in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
Amazing to relax in the tranquillity of this beautiful, owner-managed, country house estate and falling asleep to the gentle sound of the water fountains. The spacious villa suite is a decadent sanctuary, loved the deep standalone bath, the heavenly fine linens, useful toiletries, cosy lounge with fireplace and private, sunny patio with loungers.

The cooked to order breakfast set us up for days out exploring, on bikes and hikes and we throughly enjoyed sampling the delicious new winter menu.

We relaxing and swam in the heated pool (next to the cool pool) in beautiful gardens, surround by stunning mountain vistas. Sipped pre-dinner, sundowner cocktails by the water fountain terrace of the Monneaux Restaurant. Epic Bloody Mary's.

The reception team were super helpful in arranging transfers into Franschhoek village. The whole team were an absolute pleasure to interact with and made us feel very welcome. Franschhoek Country House & Villas... next-level Cape winelands boutique hotel hospitality is unpretentious, while attentive.

From the arrival and the friendly efficient ladies at check in to the porter taking our luggage to our room, the service was exceptional - probably the best we have ever experienced. The grounds are stunningly beautiful and maintained and the rooms well appointed. Well positioned to walk into Franschoek town or to get to the Franschoek Tram. Would highly recommend

Room tip: Ask for a room away from the main road - was slightly noisy but not too bad

The most relaxing, peaceful & fantastic stay & was such a great start to our holiday.We were lucky enough to enjoy four nights in a villa suite, which was superb. The staff were so friendly & accommodating. A complimentary shuttle service is available on request which runs into town until 11pm. The food in the Monneaux restaurant was excellent. We would look to stay here again when next in Franschhoek.

We stayed at the hotel as our first stop from capetown and had a villa room. It was amazing - with its own sitting room, bedroom and enormous bathroom, plus two balconies.
It was well equipped with lots of toiletries, water, tea & coffee etc.
The pool area is lovely and peaceful, and there are supplies of water and home made lemonade available.
The staff are incredibly helpful and so kind. The hotel runs a shuttle service into Franschoek - its just a bit too far out of town to walk it, but the shuttle system works really well. They will also do longer journeys if requested.
We ate in Moneaux. Wonderful food, beautifully presented and a very good wine list.
We felt extremely well looked after & it was great way to start our trip.
If you're a golfer, Paarl & Stellenbosch are within easy reach.

We have recently experienced one of the luxury Villa suites. Overall I think we made a good choice. When visiting the area we now appreciate the vast choice and its tempted to stay at a winery and am sure there are benefits of that too. However we liked the location here and whilst not immediately in the direct town of Francshhoek it was very close. They also offer a comp shuttle service to take you to the tram station or into the Village/town

We ate dinner once at the restaurant and it was good. Breakfast was good too

The massage/treatment facilty is subcontracted but they booked for me and the experience was very good

Other feedback would be whilst the rooms were lovely you could see that certain items would be needing maintenance soon

Our view was that any slight issues were overcome by outstanding customer service. Thank you

Room tip: just decide if you want an upper floor room or ground floor. Obviously some will have a preference and better to request yours in advance
