A very unpleasant experience. General cleanliness standards were low. Towels were dirty and had not been changed. Breakfast options very limited. Treatment of guests was flippant. My partner and I got very ill and despite having a vacant room on Sunday, the owner would only...More

Thank you for taking time to make your comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at Fransvliet - including visits from my special dog. Nespresso is extremely expensive in South Africa, and so we offer 2 free capsules every day in the suites....More

We particularly appreciate the daily breakfast. It was freshly prepared, gluten-free and vegan. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms are clean, generous in size, bathroom with a very nice shower and underfloor heating.

About
Description
Fransvliet Guest House is a tranquil, luxury retreat, only 4 kilometres from the heart of Franschhoek.It is situated on a working farm, growing grapes, olives and figs. Wake up to the call of the birds and in the More evening perhaps hear the resident owls calling as they contemplate the night's hunt. Breathtaking mountain views are all around, each one more spectacular than the last. The individually decorated suites are pure luxury, with absolute attention to detail. Soft wineland colours set the tone for a perfect stay. Breakfast is an occasion, every day. Spend time in the newly renovated 65 year old house, either inside or on the veranda, enjoying the view of the pool and the vineyards. Celebrate "the best meal of the day" with either a Continental or a full breakfast that will include seasonal specials. The sparkling pool is at your disposal for those hot lazy afternoons. Relax in the shade with a magazine and an ice cold drink, before you cool off. Lazy winter days are a treat too. Snuggle up in your suite in a comfy armchair with your own personal fireplace - the perfect way to enjoy one of the local bottles of red wine. Meander through the garden, (both indigenous and other) on your way to your suite. Something special will be flowering at all times. In season, luscious figs will be found on the trees, and the scent of lemons may be in the air too. Take an early morning walk around the farm in December. The vines will be green and laden with fruit. In July, a few burgundy coloured leaves and bare sticks have their own attraction. Soak up the 360° view, especially the powerful Simonsberg mountains.
