A beautiful cottage in a stunning setting overlooking the Franschoek valley. We stayed in the sunset cottage which is a ‘rustic chic’ one bedroom thatched cottage with sitting room (and open wood fire), bathroom and well equipped kitchen. The verandah has one of the most gorgeous views I have seen, and there is a private plunge pool and lawn with sun loungers. The cottage is surrounded by lush lavender bushes, oak trees and vineyards. Furnishings are comfortable rather than luxury but very tasteful. There’s a (very good) shower but no bath. There is no breakfast on site, but the kitchen is fully equipped and coffee/tea/milk/sugar/salt/pepper were provided. I would advise aiming to arrive before sunset, and picking up breakfast and other provisions from the shops in Franschoek. The cottages are only a 15 minute walk from Franschoek’s wonderful restaurants, albeit uphill via an unlit, unsealed farm road. The cottage might be uncomfortable at extremes of temperature, with only a heater, a wood fire and an electric fan available. Overall, a lovely, romantic place to stay with a real rural feel for a few days in Franschoek.
