This is definitely a must see while in Franschoek. It's located on the Ormarins Winery grounds and is a pristine installation with over 100 gorgeous vintage cars. Well worth a stop.

Really a must in Franschhoek if you even have the slightest interest in cars. There are four large purpose-built buildings which house about 20 cars each. They are built in the style of wine warehouses to fit in beautifully with the setting. If you have...More
