An epicurean's haven

Visit Franschhoek

Introduction

Franschhoek, framed by imposing mountains and endless vineyard rows, has developed into South Africa's gourmet and wine capital.

Franschhoek vineyards

A far cry from the days when herds of wild elephant roamed the ‘elephant path' through the valley from the nearby mountain pass, nowadays award-winning wine estates surround the tree-lined streets in this pretty village, and the area abounds with world-class accommodation and dining options. Choose from traditional auberges, luxury boutique hotels, inviting B&Bs and lavish country lodges and guesthouses. The valley's breathtaking and romantic beauty makes it popular with couples from all over the world.
