CAPE VUE COUNTRY HOUSE

A beautifully appointed guest house, situated on a farm just 600m from the bustling village of Franschhoek. Surrounded by breath-taking mountain vistas, this glorious accommodation venue is the ultimate spot to get away from it all, while still being close to everything the centre of Franschhoek has to offer.

Each of our 6 rooms is beautifully decorated with opulent finishes and fixtures, percale linen, soft carpets underfoot, air conditioning and underfloor heating. Interior Designers Debra Parkington and Leasa Mensing drew inspiration from the magnificent natural surrounds blending colours and motifs prominent in the Cape Floral Kingdom and the majestic mountain surrounds.

Enjoy our complimentary breakfast each morning of your stay, French style with an African twist, and then explore the area or unwind beside our pool on sunny days or in our cosy lounge on cooler ones.

Cape Vue Wines

Cape Vue wines are made with passion, attention to detail and great quality in mind.

The wines are made with care, in the vineyard all viticulture practices have the end product in mind, sustainability and only great quality grapes make their way to the cellar.

In the cellar the decisions regarding picking dates, additives and barrel selection, maturation time and fining are all made carefully.

No compromise on quality and respecting the natural flavours of the grapes are always important to the viticulture and winemaking team, resulting in elegant, well rounded and structured wines.

OUR HAPPY GUESTS

Cape Vue Country House has it all.
It’s a challenge to recommend a place in an area so magnificent as Franschhoek.
But it’s not impossible. The Cape Vue Country House is of such beauty and attention to detail that you hardly want to make a step outside. But boy, what would you be missing out on? After sleeping like an angel on clouds due to the high-end mattress and luxurious bedclothes, the beautiful mountains and vineyards greet you shimmering in various tones of gold, just to indulge yourself with an incredible breakfast menu, served by the unparalleled staff. If you get the chance to try Bobotie, do so. Just the right way to start the day.

Amazing stay, location, facilities and simply STUNNING!
Cape Vue Country House is literally everything you want from a stay in Franschhoek. It is right next to the town, but on a beautiful piece of property. Located in such a tranquil area with stunning views the property is beautifully furnished for a total luxurious stay of dreams. Cannot thank the staff enough for the amazing hospitality. We cannot wait to go back. A total dream and made it such a relaxing stay (which was needed with all the wine being consumed)!

Incredible stay, stunning location and amazing hosts
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Cape Vue. Basil and Sue are amazing hosts , every detail was seen too. The rooms and beds are super comfortable, we loved getting up in the morning to a fire going in the lounge and breakfast area, same in the evening for fireside chats, the location gives 360 views of mountains and close to all the good restaurants and shops, while maintaining a feeling of peace, calm and tranquillity. Breakfasts are delicious and five stars ***** We would definitely return and or recommend to any of our friends

Authentic intimate luxury in the heart of Franschhoek
We stayed in room 1 (the honeymoon suite) for 2 nights and had a wonderful stay. The bed has a memory foam mattress which you don’t want to ever leave, the bath is wonderful and the views of the room opening up onto the terrace are unbeatable! The guest house living room is incredibly cozy with a fire constantly burning, they do a delicious daily buffet and hot breakfasts a la carte, and an honesty bar which you can self serve at whenever you fancy. The pool is also heated so we had a wonderful dip even with cooler temperatures outside!

Best Staff and Location in Franschooek!
Five stars are not enough to express how wonderful Basil and the staff at Cape Vue are and how grateful we are for their hospitality. My partner and I did not originally book our stay with Cape Vue – we had booked a stay at a different location, but were forced to find last-minute accommodations after business hours. Thankfully, Basil responded to our situation immediately and without hesitation made sure that we were taken care of. He and his staff (particularly Zola!) made sure that we were comfortable and ok

Perfect stay in Franschhoek
Amazing stay on this beautiful small luxury lodge. Our honeymoon suite had a beautiful view and the best bed EVER and small great details like heated bathroom floor. Mr. Basil and his team were amazing, thank you for everything!

Perfect honeymoon destination
The most stunning place for us to enjoy for two nights on our honeymoon – we honestly regret not staying longer. The rooms/food/staff and views are all first class. We are already planning our next trip back in a couple of years but will hopefully plan it around staying in Franschhoek and Cape Vue for much longer.

Regret that we didn’t stay longer…

Lovely place, gorgeous view, great value for the price
We were in an upgraded room. The room was lovely, spacious, comfortable bed, nice shower. Exit to a cute yard. A very good breakfast. There is a shared living room where you can take wine, beer, water, etc. and write down… Amazing view. The hosts are nice. In short, we loved everything. I believe that if we come to the area again, we will return to sleep here

We loved our two nights here. The views are incredible, the rooms beautifully decorated and so comfortable and the staff warm and welcoming. I highly recommend a stay here. We are regular visitors to Franschhoek and Cape Vue ranks as one of our best stays in terms of location, service and comfort

Super nice manager. Friendly staff. Comfy room. Perfect position just 5 mins stroll from the start of the restaurant strip. Tasty breakfast. Honesty bar with Cape Vue wine which was superb, and various other drinks and snacks. What more could you ask for??

We really enjoyed our stay at Cape Vue Country House. Our room was beautiful and there are many places to relax around the property and take in the scenery. Breakfast was exceptional and it was an easy walk into town. Basil was helpful with recommendations and very welcoming. We will stay there again when we travel back to Franschhoek one day!
