The Franschhoek Valley
It is known as the food and wine heartland of the country, where splendid vines are grown and top chefs create international cuisine.
Spectacular vineyards cover these mountain slopes settled more than 300 years ago by the Huguenots, who brought with them their age-old French wine and food culture. This is a valley rich in history centred around a picturesque village of friendly, welcoming people.
Affectionately known as the ‘French Corner’, boutique wineries and large-scale vineyards provide a refreshing assortment of labels that impress the most seasoned of connoisseurs. Sample local and French cheeses before enjoying an afternoon tour of the Cats se Pad trail on horseback or bicycle.
Explore the streets lined with art galleries and quaint family stores or join the locals for a game of Parisian-style boules.
Whether it’s enjoying a round at the nearby Jack Nicklaus Pearl Valley Golf Estate, paragliding over the valley, or relaxing with a spot of fly-fishing, this jewel of the Western Cape caters to sportsmen and daredevils alike. History buffs can retrace Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom upon his release from nearby Groot Drakenstein Prison in 1990.
With modern amenities, breathtaking views and sophisticated décor, L’Ermitage Village is the epitome of tasteful decadence. French-inspired cobbled streets, fountains and exquisitely maintained gardens form the backdrop of one of the most picturesque settings in the Cape.

Only 45 min from Cape Town, and surrounded by magnificent mountain ranges, the Franschhoek Valley offers breathtaking scenery, world class restaurants, luxurious accommodation, wine tasting in exquisite settings, charming art galleries, quaint shops, and much more.
