Here are five reasons to spoil yourself with a winter breakaway at Franschhoek Country House & Villas this year:

1. ENJOY OUR HOSPITALITY IN OUR EXCLUSIVE-USE GUEST LOUNGE

Resident guests may enjoy complimentary local wines, beers and soft drinks in our newly renovated guest lounge from 14h00 until 17h00 daily. A large-screen television means you won't have to miss your favourite sports matches whilst doing so! Franschhoek Country House & Villas is proud to introduce another value-added offering to make your stay with us an unforgettable one.

2. DINE IN THE HEART OF THE WINELANDS AT OUR MONNEAUX RESTAURANT

Set on the original site of Franschhoek's first parfumerie, our acclaimed Monneaux Restaurant is a Cape culinary classic. Our new "Petite Assiette" menu offers a wide selection of indulgent “small plates”, where we recommend ordering three to five dishes (including dessert) to experience a variety of tastes and experiences. Perfect for sharing!

Alternatively, our “Chef’s Menu” represents a more traditional three or five course menu, which you may enjoy with or without wines to match.

3. WINTER TIME IS RED WINE TIME

Cold, wintery days lend themselves effortlessly to enjoying a bottle of red wine. Choose a fine vintage from our private cellar to enjoy with your meal, or allow your server to recommend the perfect pairing for your personal tastes. 

Our cellar is also available for private dining, offering a relaxed and unique setting for intimate groups. Furnished with natural wood, leather and stone, your guests can enjoy dining surrounded by many of the Franschhoek valley's finest vintages. The cellar venue is available for groups of 12-30 guests. Pre-booking is essential.

4. POP THE QUESTION!

Asking that all important question is a memory that you'll both remember and cherish for the rest of your life - which makes choosing the perfect setting for doing so quite important! Franschhoek Country House & Villas, with our gorgeous private gardens, tranquil fountains throughout the property and luxurious rooms and suites, offers a magical backdrop to this very special occasion.

Chat to our team about organising your perfect proposal - whether it's a candlelit table at dinner, or on a bed of rose petals alongside the fireplace in your suite, we're here to assist you right up until the time comes to drop down onto one knee! 

5. WINTER IN FRANSCHHOEK

The Franschhoek valley truly comes alive in winter and offers a plethora of experiences for all age groups and interests. One of its most famous events - the Franschhoek Bastille Festival - takes place on 15 & 16 July - celebrating the finest food, wine and culture in the valley. 

Our complimentary shuttle service offers a convenient option for getting around town when enjoying a stay with us! Arrange your drop-off and collection locations with our friendly staff and we'll transport you in comfort and style.
