This charming bolt-hole in the historic heart of Franschhoek, welcomes you with its warm village-cottage charm – its comfortable, over-sized sofas; mezzanine bedroom and bookshelves loaded with novels, cookbooks and travel guides, will have you feeling instantly at home and relaxed.
Opening out onto a lush-green, secluded, townhouse-style garden with splash pool, this cosy cottage sleeps two people in a King-sized bedroom tucked into the eaves. Decorated in a wash of creams, blues and yellows, reminiscent of an English cottage, with portraits of the owner’s days as a glider pilot, this little cottage is a quiet, comfortable and unpretentious base from which to explore Franschhoek’s sophisticated restaurants, galleries, markets and shops – which are all just up the road.
The bedroom, overlooking the double-volume living area, is made up of a King-sized bed, ensuite shower-room with basin and loo, plenty of drawers, ceiling mounted TV, a lot of books, plus an eccentric leather swivel chair with large desk. A stained-glass window with blue, red and green panes throws an ethereally warm light into the room, while a sash window lets in views of the lush garden below.
The open-plan, country-style kitchen with fridge / freezer, gas hob, electric oven, free-standing prep island and small farmhouse dining table (seating for 4), is fully-equipped with everything you need to whip up a stay-at-home meal, or a pool-side BBQ in the garden. The kitchen leads, through French doors out onto a covered patio with wrought-iron dining table and chairs (for 6), and separate, relaxed seating area – ideal for long lazy lunches under the trees, or alternatively Franschhoek’s plethora of restaurants, pubs and cafes are within walking (or Tuk-Tuk) distance.
The cosy sitting room has two large sofas, a large armoire hiding a TV (with DStv), DVD & CD player and a woodburning fireplace. Downstairs also houses a separate guest bathroom with loo, basin and a large shower; as well as a separate scullery and laundry room off the kitchen.
