On our 7th visit to Franschoek and having tried several other Guest house options options, we will not be going to try anywhere else! I cannot praise Maison Chablis or James our charming host enough. From the first point of contact and booking right through to organising activities for us while we were there everything was handled perfectly. With our...

We had a brilliant stay here. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and gave us useful recommendations. We stayed in an upstairs room near the pool with an outdoor balcony. The room is stunning, it was the nicest room we stayed in on a 2 week trip to South Africa. The bed was very comfortable and the décor incl....

A very cozy and elegant guest house in downtown Franshoek. Beautiful garden with swimming pool, large and airy bedrooms, excellent breakfast and helpful hostess. We regretted that we had not booked more than one night. Will definitely come back another time.

When we planned our trip to South Africa we looked at Maison Chablis availability before finalising the dates for our Franschhoek visit. This is our third visit over a span of about 12 years. James, the current owner is welcoming, pleasant, always willing to answer questions and go that little bit extra for his guests. Maison Chablis is brilliantly located...

We chose to celebrated our 20th Anniversary in Franschoek and booked with James at Maison Chablis. What a wonderful two days! The facilities at the Annex were fantastic with the breakfast on the patio being amazing. James was especially helpful and we found the facilities more that up to scratch. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Hi, Thank you so much for staying with us. Breakfast on the patio is such a south African way, and the shade of the morning provides a welcome relief from the hot sun. Please do return :). I am so glad that you had a super 20th anniversary. regards James

We loved this property when we stayed last year and so did our family when we returned over New Year. Perfectly situated in the town so all the restaurants and shops are within walking distance. The garden and pool are a quiet little oasis in which to unwind totally. The honesty bar is a lovely idea. The rooms are very...

Stayed in the Annexe which is delightful, providing direct access off street, sitting area, bedroom & shower room. What made it for us was the lovely garden James has created from a rubble area.
