More Travel Information

French cuisine is a star attraction on holidays to Franschhoek, and even small bars and cafés can serve up extraordinary meals. Visit one of the picturesque wine estates for wine tasting. Paradise Stables offers wine tasting on horseback! You could also go mountain biking along one of the scenic trails. Franschhoek shopping offers French chocolates, fine jewellery and many boutiques featuring local artisans. Stroll the downtown streets and look for indigenous art and artefacts.
Franschhoek's French background is reflected in the high quality of food and drink available in the town and the surrounding areas. South Africa's rich cultural mix means that everything from indigenous plates such as mieliepap (maize porridge) or a boerewors roll can be found at most eateries. Try fresh seafood on the terrace at Foliage restaurant, or visit the nearby museum and gallery before dining at Pierneef a La Motte, which serves delicious French and African cuisine.
Many of the excellent hotels offer entertainment well into the night. Vineyard Brasserie showcases live jazz performances on Friday nights, and several of the local wineries become movie theatres from November to April. For those wanting a taste of home, the Elephant and Barrel Village Pub offers English beers and pub food in a British setting. Several other bars and clubs offer everything from native musicians to French music - check with your hotel concierge for recommendations.
