Franschhoek Wine Valley

Fransvliet Guest House

Fransvliet Guest House – a place to breathe.

Fransvliet Guest House is a tranquil, luxury retreat, only 4 kilometre from the heart of Franschhoek.  It is situated on a working farm, growing grapes, olives & figs. Wake up to the call of the birds and in the evening perhaps hear the residents owls calling as they contemplate the night’s hunt.  Breath-taking Mountain views are all around, each one more spectacular than the last.  The individually decorated suites are pure luxury, with absolute attention to detail.  Soft wineland colours set the tone for a perfect stay.

Breakfast is an occasion, every day.  Spend time in the newly renovated 65 year old house, either inside or on the veranda, enjoying the view of the pool and the vineyards.  Celebrate “the best meal of the day” with either a Continental or full breakfast that will include seasonal specials.

The sparkling pool is at your disposal for those hot lazy afternoons.  Relax in the shade with a magazine and an ice cold drink, before you cool off.  Lazy winter days are a treat too.  Snuggle up in your suite in a comfy armchair with your own personal fireplace – the perfect way to enjoy one of the local bottles of red wine.
