Franschhoek Mystery Weekends are Back!

The sold out Franschhoek Mystery Weekends are back and we’re taking it up a notch. What makes these different from previous years is that they’ll be themed! So, each Mystery Weekend will be suited around something uniquely Franschhoek. With wine and food being the inspiration, our May Mystery Weekend is perfect for all the Wine Fundis and Gastronauts out there!

Be sure to join us over the weekend of 29 and 30 May for a weekend of relaxation, delectable food and world-class wines. For just R3 500 per couple (self-drive), for the whole weekend, you'll experience the best our little village has to offer.
