Venture Insight

Set on a 19th-century country estate on the outskirts of Franschhoek, this luxurious property features opulent rooms, villas and cottages surrounded by breathtaking viticultural landscapes. Dine on fine contemporary cuisine at the award-winning Monneaux Restaurant, be pampered at the decadent on-site spa and soak up the Cape Winelands sunshine beside one of the two pools.


The Franschhoek Country House & Villas is located just one kilometre from the town centre and under an hour’s drive from the Cape Town International Airport. In addition to offering a magnificent base to explore the wineries, gastronomy and Huguenot heritage of Franschhoek, it’s within easy access of the world-class cellar doors of Stellenbosch and the whale-watching coast of Hermanus.

Your Rooms + Facilities

Each of the luxuriously appointed suites, villas and cottages offer spacious lounge areas and private balconies, with charming features that hark back to the property’s 19th-century origins. Enjoy opulent amenities like underfloor heating and state-of-the-art entertainment systems, as well as stand-alone baths and cosy fireplaces where you can retreat after a long day’s wine tasting.

Africa is all about contradictions. You’ll find small group tours that have you stepping out of your comfort zone and luxury independent itineraries that allow you to indulge in comfort.
