This is one (but a good one) of many shops offering high quality local art. Art lovers have excellent motives to visit the beautiful village. Enjoy shopping, but don' t ignore the open air market in the same neighbourhood.

We called in here on our amble through Franschhoek. The art is affordable but sadly not really to our taste & we did find so many outlets on our walk to be quite "samey" & just a tourist trap really

We really enjoyed to walk around and look at the stunning art at the Franschoek Art House. Well worth a visit.

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.

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...More
