A Gem

5 of 5
We have stayed twice in this lovely apartment in a very good situation in Franschhoek. Lovingly furnished and exceptionally well equipped. Very good bed linen and towels, a must for us. This apartment has the advantage of a pretty, private patio, another room really where we do most of our reading with a glass of wine in hand. We are already booked for next year so that says it all really. Highly recommend.
