Western Cape Winelands - Franschhoek
The Cape Winelands is an adventure in itself. This famous wine route attracts thousands of international and local visitors every year and features as one of the “must see” tourist destinations in the Western Cape. Home to some of the world’s best wines and surrounded by the opulence and splendour of centuries old wine estates, this region embodies the best of South African cuisine and hospitality.
The Country House and Villa offers luxury and services expected of a first-class hotel, yet retaining a small country style atmosphere and embracing those home style values which a beautiful village in the Winelands is renowned for.

Activities for guests include wine tasting tours on the estates in the area, or in the neighboring towns of Stellenbosch and Paarl. Cape Dutch architecture, gentle walks in the valley and visits to the historic monuments representing the area’s European heritage, are all popular pastimes. Equestrian centers offer horse riding trails and riding lessons, while the area is also ideal for shopping at Jewellery Shops, Farm Stalls, Boutiques, Arts & Crafts Centres, Curio Shops, Galleries and Antique Shops.
Lunch is served on the magnificent fountain terrace and dinner in the relaxed, yet elegant dining room. The Country House offers 14 luxury rooms leading onto balconies or private patios.
