We’re showing you our favourite Franschhoek sanctuaries, since we have something special planned for the area in just a few months!
La Chataigne – Franschhoek
Contemporary cottage heaven
Gather your closest friends and book out the two Scandinavian inspired cottages on this stunning property. What used to be horse stables are now luxury spaces that extend onto private decks and a plunge pool that looks directly at Franschhoek’s magnificent mountain valley views.
Babylonstoren’s Fynbos cottage
Luxury at its finest
Arguably one of the most exquisite destinations in Cape Town, Babylonstoren is an enchanting oasis that has so much to offer – from the gardens and restaurants, to the spa, wine and most of all their luxurious accommodation. The Fynbos cottages are tucked away near the mountains which are perfect for a romantic retreat to reconnect with your partner. To keep you occupied during the day you can stroll the gardens, ride bikes, or curl up by the warm fireplace. This is the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
Modern farmhouse escape
Farmhouse living has never looked more chic. Escape to this modern cottage that has the charm of an old fashioned farmhouse but with all the modern amenities that you know and love – including a decadent hot tub. Perfect if you’re looking for a quiet spot that feels like the middle of nowhere, but is actually close to all the lovely stores (and wine farms) that Franschhoek is known for.
Exclusive farmhouse of dreams
Located on a tiny hill at the top of a long, winding dirt road, 7 Koppies is a five-bedroom farmhouse in the Franschhoek Valley with spectacular views of the many vineyards, the Simonsberg Mountains and extends onto a fynbos reserve. If that doesn’t sound dreamy enough – the 25 metre pool overlooks the entire valley. Escape with your nearest and dearest for a weekend of debauchery and hedonism in this idyllic setting.
