"We had 4 fantastic nights at Franschhoek Country Cottages. The owner "Lance" was incredibly helpful and sent us loads of information on restaurants and places to visit. Our cottage was basic and that was a part of the charm. Evenings were spent on the large veranda with a bottle of wine just enjoying the peace and quiet. We would love to go back again on our next visit to South Africa. "

"We had an amazing stay at the cottage, everything was just perfect. The setting, the set up, just everything. Our young boys enjoyed waking up to see the animals, spent most of the time just watching them grazing. The weather was rainy for most of our stay but this made for the perfect cosy setting and created beautiful views with rainbows over the mountain.
I have already recommended to all our family and friends and we will definitely be back.
Thank you "

(South Africa) ZURIENA | 18 October 2018

"Franschoek Country Cottages"

(South Africa) Jenne | 23 July 2018

"Great value for money. Was amazing to have the zebras, springbok, buffalo and gemsbok, so close to the cottages. Very quiet and stress free accommodation in Franschoek, with the town just 5 km away.

"Great value for money. Was amazing to have the zebras, springbok, buffalo and gemsbok, so close to the cottages. Very quiet and stress free accommodation in Franschoek, with the town just 5 km away. The cottage had an indoor fireplace, which was great for a cold winter's night as well as an outdoor braai. Signage to the cottages was a bit of a challenge and can be improved on. (especially at night)."

"Thanks we enjoyed our stay very much.

Please check the wall plug at the kettle -something was wrong."


"The peacefulness, the comfort of the cottage."

Jon van Coller | 6 June 2017

"The view and the wild animals grazing just in front of us.
It's nice to get away from the crowds at the end of the day.
The cottage was easy to find and very comfortable"


"Great stoep with a great view!"

Henro Visagie | 20 March 2017

"We loved having a braai, in fact, having all meals while sitting on the stoep looking at the animals just a few metres away. This is a very nice place to go to to simply relax and spend time with loved ones. The cottage was clean and well equipped - we had a lovely stay! "


"Wonderful"

(South Africa) Marie Van Sensie | 13 July 2016

"We had a really wonderful stay at the Franschhoek country cottage 4. It was cozy and my son could not get enough of the Zebras that was grazing right in front of us. Will definitely be back.

(South Africa) Gillian Lewis | 28 June 2016

"Nice quiet breakaway.
A fire stoker would be good (we used braai tongs) and perhaps an electric banket for the very cold nights.
very picturesque, very quiet, very nice - basic but comfortable.

(South Africa) Dave Symm | 7 December 2015

"Enjoyed our stay (5 nights). Fully equiped for self-catering. Accommodation kept cool, outside temp got to 40  degrees. Great to see the animals for the stoep, even had sight of the Oryx. Very comfortable.

(South Africa) Brian Burns | 2 September 2013

"Stunning place"

(South Africa) Roblene | 24 April 2018

"We were booked in for two nights accommodation Friday and Saturday nights .
On Friday morning we were sent a detailed SMS with the directions on how to get to the cottages which was great .
On arrival the keys to the cottage were where they were said they were going to leave be .
The cottages were clean and all facilities worked well .
The outside views of the surrounding area of the mountains were amazing .
The zebra , buck and wildebeest in the front yard added another dimension to our stay .
All in all I would highly recommend these cottages for good , clean accommodation .
Thank you for a wonderful weekend "

Where Springbok, Wildebeest, Zebras, and Gemsbok roam right in front of you. The best of two world's as the town and Winelands are just a stone throw away."


"Amazing Cottage"

(South Africa) Leire | 22 August 2017

"We loved this cottage. It had everything we needed. The view is beautiful and the springbok jumping and playing was a nice surprise."


"Excellent Peaceful Environment "

"What a gem. Tucked away and nestled under the Mountains, with views to drool over, and a bit of Wildlife on your "stoep"(veranda), make these delightful cottages a must visit.
Equipped and furnished more than adequately, with an indoor and outdoor fireplace to warm you up and braai outside. Watch the Zebra, come right up to the fence of your garden, while the Wildebeest and Springbok stay at a little distance. A lovely pond, which acts as a waterhole, has Aloes around it, which attracts the Sugarbirds.
If requested your firewood, briquettes and firelighters can be ordered prior and so can the local Farmers Wines. We tried the Rose and Red which were delicious. At an excellent price too.
The cottages are very clean, self-catering and close to the Town, monument and all the tourist attractions. The Franschhoek pass is well worth a drive as the views from the top is breath-taking.
All in all we would highly recommend it.

"We visited here for the weekend after a very stressful week. We found the cottage to be very clean and well equipped with everything on hand that you might need. The fireplace made for a very cosy feel with the rain pouring down outside. The animals is beautiful and the one zebra even came to investigate who is visiting, so when I opened the curtain there was literally a zebra on my stoep(veranda). I would recommend this for any couple who needs some rest and quality time together. We will be visiting again soon."


"So Peaceful! "

(South Africa) Jenna | 4 May 2017

"Such a beautiful location! Very peaceful and the views are stunning! Also close to town which was good. Will definitely stay here again."

"Wonderful Experience"

(South Africa) Bryan | 29 September 2016

It was also nice to come to a place that was really affordable and value for money. I really loved being able to watch the game roam around, while we would be braai-ing and relaxing on our outdoor covered braai area. We had a fantastic stay. Thanks!"

(RoomsForAfrica translated) Very spacious, comfortable, tasteful and extensively equipped cottage. Very well equipped kitchen. We stayed in Cottage no. 4, which has a large side window and thus is brighter. Friendly efficient hosts. Very quiet scenic location."

"A place to go and "chill""

(South Africa) Du Preez | 10 April 2015

"Very neat and cozy. A place where you can go to get away from the noisy city. Here you can go and do some self reflection or soul searching. Love the wild animals on your back porch."

"Franschhoek Country Cottages was one of the best places I have ever stayed at. The experience started off with a very quick and effective booking process via RoomsForAfrica. When we got to the cottages we were so surprised to realise it is like being in two different worlds, you have the busy city life and 5 minutes away from that you find the peaceful tranquillity of Franschhoek Country Cottages with a country feel to it, with game walking around. The rustic and self contained rooms added to the whole experience of my stay. Thank you for the hospitality and the memories gained during my stay. I won't forget my time there and hope to return again soon."


"Restful Break"

(South Africa) Mr McCarthy | 12 March 2015

"My wife and I had a restful break in a very well planned cottage. It was so pleasant to be able to sit on the well shaded stoep and watch the animals doing their own thing with the mountain back drop.
More road signage would help in finding this lovely cottage."

Very comfortable bed, and very nice bathroom. We loved sitting on the back porch with a cup of tea and watching the animals. GREAT value for the Franschhoek area as well. It wasn't a problem in this case, but the units are attached, so you have to rely on your neighbors to maintain the tranquil atmosphere, but I think this type of accommodation should attract like-minded travelers. "


"Fantastic find"

(United Kingdom) anonymous | 4 March 2015

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottages. It was in superb condition and the gemsbok, blue wildebeest and zebras outside were a treat. The place had everything we needed and was in very good reach of all the attractions in the area. A truly pleasant stay."

"Franschhoek Country Cottages offer guests an opportunity to unwind in a quiet valley situated just outside of Franshoek. The cottage has ample room, is well maintained and has the basics required of a self catering lodge. Be warned you may not want to leave after two or three days. For those needing a little bit more action, Franschoek village is a 10 minute drive (or 1 hour walk away).

Finally, while not a train smash there are few useable maps in the cottage for those wanting to set off on a hike in to the surrounding mountains. Ensure you contact Lance before arrival and ask for the best routes into the mountains."


"Wonderful location and great value...."

(United States) Derek | 9 December 2013

"Great location, peaceful and quaint. Good value, well equipped. Would definitely return."


"Rustic Franscheok"

(South Africa) Mrs Greenshields | 26 November 2013

"A very pleasant experience. It felt like we were in a national park rather than a stones throw away from Franscheok. It is very rustic so no hairdryer or tv. The wildlife is right on your doorstep which is awesome,"

"What a gem!"

(South Africa) Mrs Potgieter | 4 April 2013

"We were pleasantly surprised by this lovely cottage. Spacious, well equipped not even to mention the breathtaking surroundings. Will definitely return for a visit. Very reasonably priced for everything offered. Loved the privacy, wildlife and the easy light-up fireplace!"


"Comfy rustic cottages"

(South Africa) Hilary Kirsch | 4 April 2013

" The cottages we stayed in for four nights, were cosy, well equipped, with lovely fresh bed linen and towels which were changed after two days.We enjoyed the buck, zebra, wildebeest that shared the space with us! Thanks Andrew and Tonya for your warm hospitality."

" The setting is stunning, right up against the mountains. Wild life wandering around you almost at touching distance is a wonderful sight. The cottages were comfortable and well equipped. There was a power failure while we were there but the staff and repair engineers were very quickly there and fixed it all. This is an ideal getaway place with no great travelling for weary city dwellers with excellent food to be found in Franchhoek so close by. A car is really needed as there is no public transport. Would definitely think of going back on our next visit."


"Perfect break from the city"

(South Africa) Caroline | 13 September 2012

"The Franschhoek Country Cottages are a great choice if you are looking for a nice quiet place. It's clean, fresh flowers in the cottage, zebra's in front of your cottage, big braai area, ...

We will be back!! Lovely break from the city."
