Franschhoek travel guide

Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands valley is South Africa’s culinary pride and joy, since a number of award-winning chefs have decamped here. Surrounded by wine farms, it makes a perfect daytrip from Cape Town as you can drive there in an hour. But the area has such charming places to stay and such outstanding specialities that you could happily spend a few days there. Visit stately old farms for wine tastings, shop for art, antiques or handmade chocolate in town, and have dinner by a romantic log fire. Franschhoek means “French corner”, since it was founded in the 17th century by French Huguenots fleeing persecution in France, and many of the farms have French names. It really does remind visitors of a picturesque French village, with food and wine that compares with the best of them. On the weekend of 14th July, the town celebrates France’s Bastille Day, with a gourmet food fair, wine tastings and a general blast.

Even during its many festivals, Franschhoek has a rare ability to retain its easygoing style. Whether your budget extends to elegant accommodation and high-end eateries, or a sweet B and B and café with great pancakes, Franschhoek is a delicious experience. Our advice: don’t try to do too much in one day. Take your time and, if you’re keen to dine at a top chef’s restaurant, book your table in advance.
