Franschhoek is the Afrikaans word for “French Corner”. The town got its name after the French Huguenots that settled in the area after fleeing from France after being oppressed by the Roman Catholic majority. It was the French that introduced wine and planted the first vineyards in South Africa and you will find many of the wine farms named after wine districts like Champagne and La Motte in France.
These farms house stunning old Cape Dutch manor houses with flowy gables, beautifully manicured gardens and majestic old oaks. The gardens are often used for outdoor wedding ceremonies and the converted barns and wine cellars are used as function halls. Cape Town International Airport is a little more than 1 hour away by car. Franschhoek is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the Western Cape.
