Le Ballon Rouge
Relax your senses at Franschhoek’s oldest guesthouse, Le Ballon Rouge.
Originally built in 1904, you’ll be just steps away from the historical heart of the village.
And on the doorstep of world-class vineyards.
Le Ballon Rouge is your ideal base for exploring the wineland’s culinary (and other) wonders.
Choose from our comfortable rooms: eight individually appointed doubles and two decadent suites, one with a huge deck and private Jacuzzi.
Breakfast on the terrace while you plan your day’s adventure, even if it’s nothing more strenuous than lounging by our sunny pool with a book, or taking a stroll to sample the region’s wine.
Welcome to your personal piece of Franschhoek.
