Sample some of the regions award winning wine, stroll through exquisitely manicured gardens or explore a variety of shops, art galleries and antique shops in the oak-lined streets of the local towns. You can even go wine tasting on horseback!
Franschhoek is an utterly charming little town with French Hugenot heritage and certainly offers the best restaurants that are home to some of South Africa's top chefs.
