Situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands, Franschoek is a little bit of France in Africa. Settled by French Huguenots who fled religious persecution in the 1700s, it is famed for its brilliant restaurants, five-star guest-houses and excellent wineries. This area is second to Cape Town as the culinary heart of South Africa. Home-made cheeses, preserves, chocolates, baked goods and breads are on show in all the local shops and some of the art galleries are irresistible.
Directions: In the Western Cape Province, can be reached from Cape Town travelling towards the Wine Lands
