The name Gîte (French) means a specific type of holiday accommodation. Gîtes are generally old farmworkers' cottages or converted outbuildings and barns within proximity of the owner's principal residence.
Interestingly, we actually referred to a converted barn on our farm as ‘The Gîte’ for years and then when we started thinking of a name for our newly built barn-style suites a family member proposed that Gîte is the perfect name.
Property Facilities:
Relax in your own wood-fired hot tub while enjoying a glass of fine local wine. With breathtaking views on all sides, you can also just unwind with a good book and enjoy the murmuring sound of the mountain stream bordering all three suites.

Area Information:
Nestled between soaring mountains in the gorgeous Cape winelands, lays the magnificent Franschhoek Valley. As the food and wine hub of the country, where fine wines are grown and our top chefs create international cuisine, Franschhoek is always buzzing with locals and tourists.
Here spectacular scenery, warm hospitality, world class cuisine and the finest wines all come together to create an experience you’ll never forget.
In the village you will find interesting crafts, art and antique shops and galleries. There are also plenty of coffee shops and restaurants to choose from.
Only 45 minutes from Cape Town, Franschhoek is the perfect base while you discover the entire Cape winelands.

We booked the unit for our anniversary and we were absolutely amazed by the beauty, peace and the tranquility we experienced. Gite is highly recommended. We were welcomed by Junita and showed around and she explained how everything works. The unit is extremely private and you feel safe while you don't feel trapped in fences and being watched by security guards. An absolute MUST for a romantic weekend away in Franschhoek.
The unit had everything we needed and everything was in working condition, it was clean and very well planned. The bathroom had a bouquet of fresh tulips and the toiletries was of high quality. We felt spoiled and planning to visit again soon!

Thank you Junita!!
Superb. 5 out of 5

Absolutely picture perfect! I hate having to share such a good review; afraid of letting the secret out. Secluded, but still close to everything. Beautiful finishes. Wonderful host. Ideal weekend breakaway.

Wonderful contemporary accommodation looking over the vineyards and mountains of Franschhoek. Loved the airy feel and views from the inside and outside. Very well equipped and clean, and the hosts are welcoming and considerate. We stayed in the largest unit which has a bigger kitchen and living area. Although the location is in a rural setting it's central to the village of Franschhoek.

This was one of my most picturesque stays locally. The cabin’s at Gitê are Instagram worthy. I fell in love with the morning view from the bed as well as the view of the mountains which made me feel like I was in a little Europe. The place itself was very well equipped and I was impressed with the minimalist and very stylish decor. We truly felt welcomed by Juneta and Pierre who made our stay very pleasant and were readily available when we needed assistance. It was a chilly weekend but we couldn’t leave without making use of the outdoor wood fired hot tub whilst sky gazing. This really was a luxurious stay for what I felt was a minuscule price. I really think if you are looking for a romantic getaway and a touch of luxurious albeit countryside charm, this is the place, I will definitely be back again.

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!
