Stellenbosch and Franschhoek winelands full day tour: Tailored for you.
Stellenbosch and Franschhoek offers world class wines that are produced in South Africa. Explore these unique wineries and beautiful landscapes tasting wines at different wineries enjoying delicious decadences.
Franschhoek is one of South Africa’s oldest settlements, founded in 1688 by French Huguenots, and is surrounded by vineyards and craggy mountains. It’s only an hour from Cape Town and is the perfect escape from the city, a place to winery-hop, eat at gourmet restaurants, and relax by the pool enjoying the stunning scenery. Stellenbosch is the more well-known base for exploring the Cape Winelands (South Africa’s premier wine growing area), but locals recommend smaller Franschhoek and we loved its charm and scenic backdrop.

Franschhoek isn’t undiscovered—it gets busy in the summer, but it doesn’t feel overwhelming, especially if you stay just outside the village, amongst the tranquil vines. The pretty village consists of one main road of whitewashed Cape Dutch homesteads where you can browse restaurants, boutiques, and gourmet shops. Restaurants take advantage of locally grown produce and you’ll eat (and drink) very well.
Accommodation is mainly upscale B&Bs and small boutique hotels. They aren’t cheap, but we found them good value for the level of luxury, personal service, and delicious breakfasts. Franschhoek is the ideal place to splurge and enjoy a decadent few days. It was one of our favourite and most relaxing destinations in South Africa.
