About Cook's Cottage

Originally settled by French Huguenots in the 17th century, Franschhoek has become the gourmet capital of South Africa. This picturesque village, nestling between towering mountains in the Cape Winelands, offers not only food and wine but also a vibrant, artistic community in one of the most beautiful valleys in the country. The cottage is situated in the heart of the village and is within a few minutes' walk of the renowned restaurants.

Recently refurbished and landscaped, Cook’s Cottage is designed to accommodate two couples or a small family. A covered verandah opens around the side of the

property, which leads to the garden. The small garden is private and secure, and incorporates the plunge pool. A gate opens from the street into the driveway, off-street parking, and front door.

The spacious master bedroom upstairs in the eaves contains a mosaic bath under the window, built-in cupboards and DStv. It has a shower room and a separate toilet. The study, adjoining the master bedroom has a sofa bed, a large desk and an ADSL/Broadband connection. Downstairs is the second double bedroom with built-in cupboards and a mosaic-tiled shower room across the corridor.

The fully-equipped kitchen is open-plan to the dining area and overlooks the dining room and living room. It has the best modern appliances for catering at home. French doors lead out to the verandah which has a dining table, sofa and chairs.

Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend sojourn in Cook's Cottage, the warm and organised welcome, very comfortable beds and lovely linen.

I can certainly recommend Cook's Cottage to anyone that wants to experience a quiet break to the beautiful Boland, but still have all the comforts of staying in town.We immediately felt at home in the cottage and truly appreciated all the additional arrangements Jo made for us.
