the sur­round­ings in­clud­ing the moun­tains and the stretches of vine­yards are Fran­schhoek’s main draw cards. “And then, of course, it is also well known as the gourmet cen­tre of the Cape, with some of the world’s best and award-win­ning restau­rants.”

Se­eff Fran­schhoek is mar­ket­ing stands within The Fran­sche Hoek Es­tate, a de­vel­op­ment that is sit­u­ated on the out­skirts of the town. This res­i­den­tial haven is nes­tled among vine­yards in the val­ley of the Drak­en­stein moun­tains. The es­tate con­sists of a va­ri­ety of op­tions for the dis­cern­ing buyer who en­joys cap­ti­vat­ing views, lus­cious scenery, his­tor­i­cal am­bi­ence, world class cui­sine, fine wine and much more.
