This place is flat out amazing! It has historic charm, great modern decor, a beautiful garden to sit and read in, and a nice looking pool which we didn't get to use! There are some very nice touches like Netflix to watch and soaps and shampoo in each room.

Beautiful home and gardens! Great location easily in walking distance to everything in Franschhoek but a little off the main drag so it felt like a really escape. The four bedrooms with ensure bathrooms were beautifully appointed. We wanted to stay longer!

Do not even think twice - just book this place. 6 stars! Beautifully decorated with art, love and attention to every detail. The photos do not do this place justice. Spaciouse rooms, garden. Private and sunny pool area. Internet connection fantastic. Bose music in every room. Aircon. Great security... more than anything, just a full rounded luxuriouse experience in Franschhoek! Easily reached by foot to the main town road and restaurants. One of the best airbnb experiences we have had and worth every penny. Thanks Pierre - we will be back!

Pierre's home is gorgeous and our family (5 total adults) loved staying here in Franschhoek over the New Years holiday. Pierre communicates well and Ria was responsive if we needed her. The art is gorgeous, the kitchen is well-appointed, and the garden/pool area is fantastic. The washer/dryer was a nice amenity to have for a longer stay. It took us a while to get used to the security system and the Nespresso machine, but we got it! The wifi was the fastest that we found during our travels in South Africa, and there were a lot of TV channels available. Air conditioning is limited to the living room, so be prepared if you're traveling in a heat wave as we were. The beds are comfortable as well and parking is right in front of the house. All of the recommendations that Pierre gave us were wonderful. This was a great experience and we loved Franschhoek - thank you, Pierre!

Well situated in Franschoek - you can walk to town; supermarkets, restaurants etc. Very comfortable for 8 people (although we were 5); house is spacious enough; nice garden and heated pool. Nicely decorated and appointed house; lots of attention to the finer details. We would certainly come back to this house. Owner and manager friendly and willing to assist.
