Le Quartier Francais
A superb hotel with its heart in the right place: they provide daily breakfasts for hundreds of children in the local community, serving numerous daycare centers and schools thus giving the children the right foundation to learn and lead healthy lives.
The hotel itself is excellent, right in Franschhoek village, with 21 incredibly tasteful rooms, vibrantly furnished, all surrounding a lovely pool, in 5 room categories, culminating in The Four Quarters suites for the ultimate in indulgence.
However, before there was a hotel there was the restaurant, and this rounds out a truly remarkable package – the food is arguably the finest you will find anywhere, not just in Franschhoek, which itself is a foodie mecca. They have a lovely cinema too, so grab some gourmet popcorn and enjoy a flick.
This is the most historic town in the wine region, with a charming old town full of Dutch Cape architecture. As well as wine there’s a thriving cultural scene. It is scenic with a lush hilly landscape that makes the wine seem even more appealing.
