Chevendeux Self Catering Guest House is located in the heart of idyllic Franschhoek, just off the bustling main road.
It’s a convenient base to explore the area but also a lovely home-from-home, perfect for families and couples looking for somewhere comfortable to stay while traversing the Cape Winelands region. Look forward to braaing on the stoep on warmer evenings, or keep warm with a bottle of wine and a cheese or chocolate fondue in front of a roaring fire when there’s a chill in the air. Read books in the courtyard while watching on as your kids play around during the day, before heading out to explore or wind down after a busy day. Three friendly dogs that live on the property might come to say hello!

Location, location, location! We loved this family farm stay in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley. It felt like we were staying in a Dutch home complete with parents and grandparents... three wonderful dogs and a delightful staff. Who else gets to pick grapes off the vine for breakfast? Our unit was private, spacious and homey, we felt safe and secure and hope to return again.
