Gîte offers the ultimate escape: Luxury suites with contemporary furnishings, a picturesque farm setting and yet you will find yourself walking distance from town and all its culinary delights! Nestled in the famous Franschhoek valley, just an hour’s drive from Cape Town.
The name Gîte (French) means a specific type of holiday accommodation. Gîtes are generally old farmworkers' cottages or converted outbuildings and barns within proximity of the owner's principal residence.
Interestingly, we actually referred to a converted barn on our farm as ‘The Gîte’ for years and then when we started thinking of a name for our newly built barn-style suites a family member proposed that Gîte is the perfect name.
Nestled between soaring mountains in the gorgeous Cape winelands, lays the magnificent Franschhoek Valley. As the food and wine hub of the country, where fine wines are grown and our top chefs create international cuisine, Franschhoek is always buzzing with locals and tourists.
Here spectacular scenery, warm hospitality, world class cuisine and the finest wines all come together to create an experience you’ll never forget. In the village you will find interesting crafts, art and antique shops and galleries.
There are also plenty of coffee shops and restaurants to choose from. Only 45 minutes from Cape Town, Franschhoek is the perfect base while you discover the entire Cape winelands.
