The staff couldn't do enough for us and were extremely friendly. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, relaxing and quiet (especially the room at the back looking onto the garden). The breakfasts are the best bit! We will definitely be back.

We loved to stay @ Fransvliet B&B, Shirley and Victor were kind hosts and tried to fulfill every wish. Very good idea is the "special of the day" they offer at the breakfast. A new warm course every day with vegetables, variations from egg, ham, etc. We liked it. The cottage was quiet big with a kitchenette, coffee machine and... More

Lovely place to stay. While it is outside the main town there is plenty of good food and wine within walking distance (e.g. moreson, la motte, la maison). Rooms are a good size and very comfortable with great bathroom. Great breakfast included.

Lovely B&B just on the outskirts of Franschooek. Rooms were great and the breakfasts were amazing. It was a lovely touch to be served champagne while lounging by the pool one evening. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Very nice base for exploring Franshoek and surounds. Rooms could have been a bit more private as people were walking by. Staff was really good and took well care or us. Breakfast was an experience in itself!

It is hard to top the natural beauty, fun and excitement that the wine region offers, but Shirley and her team and this wonderful, relaxing home away from home certainly managed to accomplish just that.

We arrived late on Sunday afternoon after driving out to Cape Point, and then around False Bay. We were thirsty and hungry. Victor organised a cheese platter and a bottle of cold white wine. Later after taking us to our room we asked if it was possible to have laundry done... no problem. He recommended a lovely restaurant that night... More

We stayed at Fransvliet for two nights from 18th to 20th July 2015 while traveling the Garden Route. The rooms include a fireplace, which is a nice touch! We had the fire going both nights we stayed, which came in very handy given how cold it was, and also added to the charm of the place. During our stay, the... More

Thank you for taking the time out to review your stay at Fransvliet. I am puzzled by the hot water as each suite has 220 lit geyser. I am sorry you did not question this at the time as it should always be sufficient. We are an environmentally conscious establishment but our system runs at 60C, which is usually more... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fransvliet Guest House is a tranquil, luxury retreat, only 4 kilometres from the heart of Franschhoek.It is situated on a working farm, growing grapes, olives and figs. Wake up to the call of the birds and in the evening perhaps hear the resident owls calling as they contemplate the night's hunt. Breathtaking mountain views are all around, each one more spectacular than the last. The individually decorated suites are pure luxury, with absolute attention to detail. Soft wineland colours set the tone for a perfect stay. Breakfast is an occasion, every day. Spend time in the newly renovated 65 year old house, either inside or on the veranda, enjoying the view of the pool and the vineyards. Celebrate "the best meal of the day" with either a Continental or a full breakfast that will include seasonal specials. The sparkling pool is at your disposal for those hot lazy afternoons. Relax in the shade with a magazine and an ice cold drink, before you cool off. Lazy winter days are a treat too. Snuggle up in your suite in a comfy armchair with your own personal fireplace - the perfect way to enjoy one of the local bottles of red wine. Meander through the garden, (both indigenous and other) on your way to your suite. Something special will be flowering at all times. In season, luscious figs will be found on the trees, and the scent of lemons may be in the air too. Take an early morning walk around the farm in December. The vines will be green and laden with fruit. In July, a few burgundy coloured leaves and bare sticks have their own attraction. Soak up the 360° view, especially the powerful Simonsberg mountains. ... more   less
