Avondrood Guesthouse

Avondrood Guest House is nestled amidst the beautiful mountains and vineyards of the Cape Winelands and conveniently located within walking distance of the village centre of Franschhoek, South Africa’s renowned gourmet capital. Avondrood Guest House is a charming well-maintained Victorian Cape Dutch-style house built in 1870 that has been tastefully renovated adding modern day comforts whilst retaining many features of the original building.  There are eight generous rooms, one of which is a new two bedroomed family suite, each with a distinctive décor, creating a unique ambiance. We offer a wine bar service, which is situated in our spacious lounge area. In addition, the premises are surrounded by a lush secluded 2,000 square meter garden with a private swimming pool and Jacuzzi.  Rich in history as one of South Africa’s oldest towns, today’s Franschhoek is well-known for its award-winning wines, restaurants and venues. With its friendly small village atmosphere, Franschhoek offers a number of delightful art and craft shops as well as the opportunity to visit the Huguenot Museum or the famous Franschhoek Motor Museum. Most of the surrounding vineyards offer wine tasting followed by lunch and the vineyards and the surrounding countryside can be explored by car, bicycle, horseback, or with the unique wine tram hop-on-hop-off service.
