This stunning luxury villa to rent in Franschhoek sits in a tranquil and very private location, off the main road in the beautiful town, just an hour’s drive from Cape Town and its beaches. With a long history dating from 1688, when it was founded by the French Huguenots, Franschhoek is also known as the food and wine capital of South Africa. There are more award-winning restaurants concentrated here than anywhere else in the country, all within a short walk or drive from the villa. The exceptional wine tasting in the area offers a unique experience, with many of the historic family-owned vineyards also offering beautiful architecture, as well as incredible views. Some also offer extra treats such as museums and garden tours.

A beautiful combination of colonial English design and traditional Afrikaans/Dutch heritage, the luxury villa rental is surrounded by a very large and beautifully designed mature garden. With paths leading to various lawns, and quiet corners with tables and chairs, there are plenty of places for relaxing outdoors. There are also koi fish ponds and a vegetable garden. The main terrace outside the villa leads to a large lawn with a swimming pool, surrounded with sun loungers. A covered terrace with fireplace is perfect for dining outdoors. There are also outdoor gas heaters, a gas barbecue and a pizza oven.
