Franschhoek Holidays

Africa's chic culinary capital

Founded by French settlers, the Gallic flair for mouth-watering cuisine has definitely rubbed off on this pretty little town.

Known as the gourmet capital of South Africa, foodies flock to Franschhoek for its award-winning restaurants. We love leisurely brunches in chic pavement cafes, lunch in the sun paired with a cool, crisp local Sauvignon Blanc, and the nine-course tasting menu at Le Quartier Français, voted one of the world's 50 best restaurants.

See more of South Africa in one trip: visit Cape Town for vibrant culture and epic views of Table Mountain, or drive the Garden Route to tour Africa's beautiful coast.
