Cartref & Cwtch, One Bedroom suites at Monument House Estate

Monument House, created by internationally awarded designer Wendy Smith, sits nestled between the historic Huguenot Monument and breath-taking Franschhoek Mountains. This secluded estate provides a rare opportunity to experience rural luxury, whilst exploring the impossibly charming Franschhoek village on foot.

Cartref – [Car-Trev] Welsh for ‘A beguiling sense of home’ and Cwtch – [Kutch] ‘A loving embrace’ are luxe one bedroom suites, with private turrets and viewing gallery above, that

afford magnificent views of the surrounding Franschhoek Valley and Mountains

Full of feeling and emotion, each 45m2 suite entices you to slumber in custom designed beds and dream deeply under imported Italian linen.

A double vanity awaits beyond the ensuite threshold with a walk-in shower and generous bathtub perfect for sharing.

High speed WiFi is standard throughout the Estate. Each suite comes equipped with air conditioning, fans and heated towel rails. A mini-fridge is on-hand along with hot drinks, snacks and a Tipple or two. Laundry is complimentary and rooms serviced daily.

To add to the experience a Breakfast Certificate at one of our favourite local restaurants will be gifted each morning, encouraging guests to fully explore the culinary delights of Franschhoek.

A shared heated pool, jacuzzi and acres of garden await outside your door. Onsite parking allows you to safely leave the car and walk into the village.

To ensure the tranquil experience of our guests Monument House is a child free environment.
