Franschhoek Wine Valley

The Lab Lifestyle Franschhoek

The owners, Gordon and Belinda Fraser, lived in Franschhoek for 5 wonderful years before moving back to Johannesburg. They bought an old house in Franschhoek, built in the 1970’s, and then transformed it into a modern day 6 bed en-suite guesthouse, which served as their family home during their stay in Franschhoek. Gordon and Belinda are passionate about style and service and promise an amazing stay at A la Montagne guest house.

The rooms are uniquely large and the bathrooms equally styled to fit. The communal areas are large and comfortable, offering open fireplaces for winter nights and comfy loungers for a quiet read. The private pool area boasts a large, tiled sundeck with a sparkling pool to cool off in on hot summer days. The property has off street parking for 8 vehicles.

The guest house is situated in Nerina street just before ascending the Franschhoek pass and thus the mountain views are splendid. The main street is just 5 blocks away and so the leisurely amble through the towns amazing attractions are only moments away.
