Franschhoek derives its name from the French Huguenot refugees that came to live in this area. Franschhoek literally means French Corner. It is one of the oldest towns in South Africa.  Cape Town has the closes International Airport to welcomes visitors and tourists to our fair land.  The closest towns to Franschhoek are Paarl, Wellington, Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Strand, Villiersdorp, Grabouw, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Botrivier, with Cape Town, Worcester, Robertson, and Malmesbury a little further away.

Franschhoek produces mainly agricultural products;  first and foremost is wine, but also fruit and vegetables.  It is a sought after residential area and quite ‘arty’.  Most of the Cape Dutch architecture has been retained and restrictions have been placed on the extent of renovations on the buildings in order to keep its old historic charm.
