My cousin and his wife had recently arrived in South Africa and had spent a few days exploring the Cape Town area. Lana and I decided to rather join them from when they were due to visit our favourite Valley and town in the area – Franschhoek.
We met them at the airport and drove directly to Franschhoek. As we were going to spoil ourselves with a tastings dinner at Le Quartier Francaise’s Tastings room this evening we opted for a light snack at a sidewalk venue in town. Delightful. Franschhoek certainly is a foodies destination.
The Franschhoek Country House is a magnificent Five Star Boutique Hotel just on the outskirts of town and has a vineyard extending into the property. You really feel you are you are in the winelands!
