Franschhoek

4.1

Food and Wine Capital of South Africa

Situated in a fertile valley between two mountains, the picturesque village of Franschhoek bills itself as a culinary heaven, with renowned wine estates dotting its surroundings. Founded in the late 17th century by French Huguenot settlers, the village boasts quaint Cape Dutch architecture and houses some of the country's most esteemed restaurants. Stylish guesthouses, cafes, and trendy boutique shops line the main village road, where you can hop on the "Wine Tram" and take a tour of the scenic vineyards. On a Franschhoek holiday, you can also take relaxing nature walks, cycle among the vineyards, and shop for quality handicrafts. Franschhoek is in Western Cape.
