La Provence Franschhoek

The next day we hopped over to Franschhoek to spend a night there. Franschhoek is a busy little town along the Cape Wineroute, and we found a fantastic accommodation at the "La Provence Vineyard Cottages". It is situated 2 km outside of Franschhoek, and we slept in one of the three charming cottages...


Franschhoek Accommodation

...surrounded by the vineyard of the van Rensburg family. The breakfast was delicious, and the three dogs were in a very playful mood (we took them on a short walk through the vineyard).


Franschhoek Monument

You will find the Franschhoek Monument at the end of the Huguenot Road. It was built in 1948 as reminder to the first settlers of the area.


Franschhoek Pass

From the Franschhoek Monument you should drive all the way up to the Franschhoek pass. You will spot many beautiful sights like this...


Franschhoek Valley

...and this: The Franschhoek Valley, seen from the Franschhoek Pass.


On the way to Robertson

Once you leave Franschhoek behind you on your way East, the roads will become curvier, and the vineyards will be replaced with rocks and bushes.
