My take on Franschhoek - Much has been said about Franschhoek and it is difficult to add more. A relaxing place to just sit around. As a pensioner though, I found my pockets not deep enough to stay there too long but the many foreign visitors make up for that.

Great Food and Wine - There are so many options of where to eat or drink. The wine farms have beautiful settings. The wine is top quality and caters for every wallet. The shopping is for foreigners only, way too pricey for locals. It is a beautiful area.

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!
