The only negative thing that can be said about FrancolinHof is that you have to leave somewhere along the line... Mary (a fantastic hostess and person) waited up until late evening to welcome us into her little sanctuary that is comfortably tucked away at the foot of some breathtaking mountains and stunning views of the hypnotic Hermanus beaches. FrancolinHof knows... More

Thank you, Rashmi and Thomas, for taking the time to write this wonderful review. The mountain is indeed beautiful - maybe we should suggest that all of our guests arrive at night, as you did! We're sorry that you had to leave too ... but we'll be around for a while yet, in this magical place - I hope !... More

Dear Ybert and Lilo The difference between hospitals and hospitality is maybe not so great - except that our guests choose to visit - whereas no-one chooses to be in hospital!
