Franschhoek Wine Valley


Akademie Street Boutique Hotel and Guesthouse

Akademie Street Guesthouses offers five-star accommodation in five unique buildings all situated on the same beautiful property in a quiet area of the village Franschhoek, in the heart of the Cape Winelands. There are four sun-kissed swimming pools and shady gardens where one can lie in privacy and listen to the splashing of the fountains, the song of the cicadas, the cooing of the Cape Doves … sounds so evocative of the Cape Winelands. This is coupled with the personal service that only a very small, family owned and managed, five-star guesthouse/boutique-hotel can give. From this retreat one can stroll to the village centre and its famous restaurants. Historic wine farms, great golf courses, hiking, fly-fishing and riding are close by.

We have three large, modern suites each with their own private entrance and three other unique private buildings each with its private entrance from the road and each with its own private garden and pool.
