Fantastic property in a great location close to all amenities

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this property and will definitely return in the future. Beautifully furnished, spacious and in a fantastic location close to the town centre. Truly a pleasure to stay there and we were genuinely sad to leave.

Perfection in Franschhoek!

5 of 5
Grand Plaisir is a lovely property a stones throw (7-8 minutes stroll) from town with fantastic mountain views and a beautiful garden thrown in. Marlicia made us feel right at home straight away and even let us have a larger unit than the one we had booked when she had a late cancellation. Result! Little touches like the homemade biscotti and good quality coffee grounds waiting in our kitchen and the kind thought to send over a bottle of champagne for my wife's birthday (her 40th..I can't promise she will do this for regular birthdays!!) made all the difference to our stay. Hand on heart we both agreed that Marlicia was a brilliant host, we've had nothing but positive experiences to date in the Cape but the one at Grand Plaisir was the best yet.
