Le Franschhoek

Le Franschhoek is a charming country home-turned-modern hotel designed in the traditional Cape Dutch fashion and located in the heart of Franschhoek, in the Cape Winelands.

Le Franschhoek is an historic residence located in the centre of Franschhoek, regarded by many as the most charming and pretty town in the Cape Winelands. Formerly a private country retreat, the home has been restored and greatly expanded into what is now a large hotel with 79 rooms, all of which have been designed in the original Cape Dutch fashion, with whitewashed walls, gables and thatch roofs.

Le Franschhoek has a fine location, providing wonderful views of the Franschhoek Mountains and easy access to the famous Cape wine routes.
