Hotels, Eco Escapes & Lifestyle Resorts | Unearthing the Exceptional
With a backdrop of lush vineyards and smoky-blue mountains, as well as some of South Africa’s finest wines on tap, a visit to Franschhoek is travel perfection.
Add a stay at The Last Word Franschhoek, our exclusive five star boutique hotel in the heart of this picturesque French-style village in the Cape Winelands, and it’s sublime. The luxury residence, exquisitely restored in the Huguenot tradition, boasts interiors as spacious as they are elegant, and a convenient location just steps away from a number of award-winning restaurants, galleries and boutiques.
Widely regarded as South Africa’s gourmet capital, Franschhoek (‘French corner’ in Afrikaans) is a charming village at the head of a fertile, steep-sided valley where the spirit of bonhomie is alive and well.
Many of the country’s finest restaurants are here, along with scenic drives through verdant countryside, stopping in for cellar tours at both long-established and newly-thriving estates.
After a hard day’s wine tasting, you can relax in your own private patio garden (or, if you book one of the suites, a private pool) while taking in the dramatic scenery, enjoying the quiet and tranquillity, or contemplating which of Franchhoek’s many pleasures to sample next.
There are ten luxurious rooms, four superior doubles which open onto private patio gardens and two suites, which have access to semi private pools.
All have large en-suite bathrooms.
The reserve offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as: stalking, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, guided 4×4 safaris and walks, falconry, mountain biking and hiking. Other activities can be organised locally and the reserve is a short drive from castles, whisky distilleries and golf courses.
