We have stayed in many Guest Houses on several visits to South Africa and their quality is usually very high. We thus expected a lot from FrancolinHof but were immediately blown away by what we found. It is a beautiful building in a stunning site at the top of a road with mountains behind. The road runs down to a...

The only negative thing that can be said about FrancolinHof is that you have to leave somewhere along the line... Mary (a fantastic hostess and person) waited up until late evening to welcome us into her little sanctuary that is comfortably tucked away at the foot of some breathtaking mountains and stunning views of the hypnotic Hermanus beaches. FrancolinHof knows...

Thank you, Rashmi and Thomas, for taking the time to write this wonderful review. The mountain is indeed beautiful - maybe we should suggest that all of our guests arrive at night, as you did! We're sorry that you had to leave too ... but we'll be around for a while yet, in this magical place - I hope !...
