Only minutes from the centre of the Cape's culinary capital, lies Val d'Or where the welcome is warm, tranquillity tangible and the ambience geared to your comfort.
Sink into plump couches in the lounge with it's intimate bar, sip a sundowner on the terrace overlooking vineyards and mountaints, or enjoy a pre-prandial sherry on a winter evening.
Luxuriate in one of the spacious, individually decorated en-suites, or opt for a quaint garden unit. Wake to birdsong and linger over a bountiful breakfast.

Property Facilities:
Franschhoek

Follow hiking trails, go bike or horse riding or indulge in some trout fishing. Absorb our French heritage at the Huguenot museum or enjoy a round of golf at one of the many golf estates in the area or simply catch a tan at the pool. While you're out visiting the local wine estates, cheese tasting is available where you can choose from over 30 delicious South African varieties.
Huguenot Fine Chocolates

Visit this quaint Belgian chocolate shop for a decadent lesson in chocolate making and indulge in some fine chocolate tasting during the show. You'll be tempted to continue the chocolate "tasting" long afterwards too. Or try the more specialized, Bijoux chocolates, next door.

The Flying Company

Go on an airborne adventure in one of The Flying Company's helicopters for magnificent views of this splendid part of the country.

Wine Tasting on Horseback

Picnics

Picnic in the lavender fields or herb garden of Bien Donne Werf farm and learn about their fruit research. Or take your basket to Chamonix, Dieu Donne, Boschendal or Riverside next to the Berg River.

Franschhoek Music

Jazz lovers will appreciate the live jazz outside La Grange on Friday evenings, while classical listeners are not forgotten with monthly classical concerts held at La Motte wine estate.

Franschhoek Heritage & Culture

Take a tour of Mooiwater township or Pniel, the first town of the free slaves. Visit the Huguenot Memorial Museum for a history lesson on the Franschhoek settlers. Professor Rust will educate you on the heritage and the flora of the valley. For some French-Huguenot architecture, visit the Boschendal Manor (1685), Burgundy Bourgogne farm or the thatched Dutch Reformed Church (1847).

David Walters at Roubaix House Gallery showcases some of the best South African art and promotes local artists. Watch artist David Walters himself throw clay. Make your own Shona sculpture at the Munhutapa Gallery at Boschendal.

Franschhoek Shops

The village centre boasts an array of art shops, galleries and specialist stores trading items such as Cape furniture, African and tribal artifacts, cottage furniture and scientific instruments, amongst others.

Watch carpet weavers at work on hand-knotted carpets at Kei Carpets. The street market is open on Saturdays and the ?Kuns Ronvaart', an arts & crafts and antiques route around the village, is another interesting alternative.

Be sure not to miss out on the many interesting Franschhoek tourist attractions available in this beautiful area, along with the magnificent wine estates and golf estates in the Winelands.
