    GelatenheidAkademie Street Guesthouses offers five-star accommodation in five unique buildings all situated on the same beautiful property in a quiet area of Franschhoek. There are four sun-kissed swimming pools and shady gardens where guests can relax in privacy and listen to the splashing of the fountains, the song of the cicadas, the cooing of the Cape Doves … sounds so evocative of the Cape Winelands. This is coupled with the personal service that only a very small, family owned and managed, five-star guesthouse/boutique-hotel can offer. The establishment boasts three large, modern suites, each with their own private garden, as well as three other unique private buildings, each with its own private entrance from the road, garden and pool.

    Perfectly located, the retreat is within walking distance from the centre of town, affording visitors the opportunity to browse the boutique stores or enjoy a delicious meal in one of the many fine dining restaurants. Historic wine farms, pristine golf courses, hiking, fly-fishing, horse riding and other outdoor activities are also within close proximity.

    Recent accolades include:

    2014 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards
