Heuwelsig Cottages are situated on a working wine farm, just 5 km from the vibrant village of Franschhoek, about an hour's drive from Cape Town.

Set in a unique location, against the shade of the Franschhoek Mountains, with spectacular views and farm ambience, Heuwelsig Cottages offers two beautifully decorated self-catering cottages.

Come and enjoy a home away from home experience in luxury and tranquil surroundings, ideal for families and couples alike. Watch the day go by, relaxing at the pool or simply unwind, taking in the stunning scenery, with a glass of wine.

The pioneering spirit of The Malherbe family can be seen in everything they do and Heuwelsig Farmhouse was established in 2009 by Corne and
Gideon Malherbe.
The newly renovated cottages were finished in 2015 and we are now proud to announce that we’ve added three Auto home camping sites, a new addition for 2018, on the farm for Auto Homes, visiting the Franschhoek valley.

Heuwelsig, meaning “view over the mountains”, was brought by the Malherbe family in 1989.
The Malherbe family has been farming in Franschhoek since 1903 and are the 5th generation farmers still farming the land, founded by the French Huguenots in 1688.

We do provide swimming towels at the cottages, white towels not to be used at the pools.

• WIFI
We have free wifi available to all guests. The signal are strong enough for making bookings and checking social media, but not for streaming movies however.


• POOL
We have 2 pools on the property.

The pool will be cleaned every morning on weekdays and pool tools, with net are available to clean any leaves, if necessary over week-ends.


• WORKING FARM
Heuwelsig Farm, is situated in a working wine farm. Meaning there might be farm activities early morning and late evening, people moving around and tractors and trucks, going up and down.
At certain times of the year, spraying might be needed. Guest will be informed and we apologizes in advance for any inconvenience.


• FARM ANIMALS
As far as the animals on the farm is concerned:

The black ostriche is male and very aggressive.
Please maintain a 2 metre distance from the fence at all times. The male (black) is very protective of his area. The female was killed by wild dogs and this has made the male very suspicious. Keep small children at a safe distance.

There are 2 border collies on the property:
Gemma, smaller one, is female and Oreo, bigger on is male. They are is very friendly and will come say hello.
Please keep small children away until the dogs are comfortable.

We have 2 cats on the property:
Rose is wild and more of an outside cat, while Penelope is white and will only venture outside occationally.

Chickens are kept in a chicken coop at night and are free range during the day.

This is such a beautiful and well run town, with an abundance of wine and good food! Would highly recommend this for any visitors seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or just want a romantic weekend away. It is on the pricey side, so be prepared to pay a bit for a meal and drinks. Otherwise have fun!
