Franschhoek - Soul inspiring area, loads of things to do and see, best wines in the world, great food and restaurants

Franschhoek is perfect! - Such a beautiful little town, filled with restaurants, art galleries, wine and romance. I loved the fact that it's close to Cape Town, yet it feels so remote. Definitely should be on everyone's bucket list!

Franschoek, so much to see & do - Such a wonderful place, beautiful, such a variety of things to see and do and a good hub for visiting the wine farms in Franschoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch. Not too far from Cape Town. If you want to get away from busy City life, this is the place to visit.
