This is a very friendly gallery displaying local artist's work and the owner's work too, but it didn't inspire me as I felt it was 'same old, same old'. For overseas tourists they will love it, but being here for forty odd years - can we please have something new and innovative e.g. like the rhino project that has blossomed... More

Having purchased a small stone animal carving from this shop, on our visit in 2015, we were happy to find and buy to 2 similar items as mementos of this year's holiday in Western Cape

We liked the look of the art work out the front so we popped in. We were surprised that the items were so affordable. We ended up grabbing a couple of things to take home as souvenirs for family members.

We spent ages in here. The are at least 20 galleries in Franscchoek but this one was our favourite. The owner and his wife are wonderful, very helpful and knowledgeable - they have been there for many years. The lady who owns the place with her husband is an accomplished and talented artist in her own right, and her work... More

This art gallery is well worth a visit. They have art from a variety of artists, all of which is high quality. Prices are very reasonable but don't expect to haggle unles you're spending Rand 10k or more. The owners are more than happy for you to browse and admire their work. Overall, this gallery stands out amongst the other... More

This art gallery is a must when visiting Franschhook. Situated among the guesthouses , coffee shops and boutiques with great crafts and artworks reasonably priced. Certainly a most memorable visit.

We were happy to wander into the Art House while enjoying a lazy stroll through Franschhoek. It's rare that we enter a gallery where we find so much of the work appealing! We ended up sending several pieces home, one of them a collage by co-owner, Rosita. Wonderful stop in Franschhoek!

This is a very well organised and presentable gallery. Some very interesting paintings and artefacts, although not very cheap.

We returned having visited in 2014. Great to talk to Resident artist Rosita Manser and her husband. Excellent selection of her work and others. Not to be missed if you are in town.
