Franschhoek Wine Valley

L’ermitage Franschhoek Chateau & Villas

On the slopes of the Franschhoek Pass, amidst sweeping tracts of fynbos, lies the exclusive village of L’ermitage. Set within the secure grounds of the prestigious Fransche Hoek Estate, nestled between Chamonix and Haute Cabrière.

Here you will find the stately four-star Chateau du Pré and 36 charming private Villas, all of which promise guests a warm welcome and a wonderful stay. In safe walking distance, within the village, is also the fine-dining Sixteen-88 restaurant, and for picnics or home entertaining you’ll be spoilt for choice at L’Ermitage’s own sumptuous delicatessen.

For guests seeking a unique wellness experience there is the very special Skin & Body Sanctuary. It’s just the place to make sure that the peace of L’ermitage penetrates deep into the body, refreshing and cleansing in holistic treatments.

And of course for weddings and social celebrations, or conferencing and corporate affairs you need look no further than L’ermitage for an unforgettable experience.
