Overview

Avondrood Guesthouse is a charming Victorian Cape-Dutch homestead close to the centre of Franschhoek, South Africa's renowned gourmet capital. Rich in history, today's Franschhoek is well-known for its award winning wine estates, restaurants and lovely valley setting.

The original Cape-Dutch house was built in 1870. It has been stylishly renovated adding modern-day comforts whilst retaining many original features. Avondrood offers six generous rooms, one in the main homestead and five overlooking the garden. One of these is a two bedroom family suite accessed via a spiral staircase. It has a large terrace with glorious mountain and valley views, a small sitting area and one bathroom. It can also be accessed via the main homestead as well. A contemporary selection of paintings and sculptures decorate the rooms, lounge, garden and patio. Avonsrood has a surprisingly large garden with private swimming pool and jacuzzi.

Franschhoek is well situated to enjoy the Cape Winelands, and even Cape Town. To see whales basking and white sharks diving at Hermanus and Gansbaai will take about a 1-1½ hour’s drive.
