Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic 2 weeks in Phillipe's house. From start to finish, everything was perfect. Phillipe is very easy to deal with and arrangements and payments were very smooth. We were met by Ria who was lovely and arranged for bed changing and a bit of cleaning at a very good price.

The house is extremely comfortable and very well equipped- there was absolutely nothing missing as there can be in some holiday rentals. It is obvious that this is used by the owner so it really is like home. The beds are comfortable and the water pressure is good so a nice refreshing shower is guaranteed. Lovely garden for those summer evenings and an easy walking distance to town and supermarket.

Thoroughly recommend and will definitely stay here again when we next come here.

perfektni, ubytování, golf, v zim? léto jet lag

  • 5 of 5

D?m vlastní a pronajímá pár francouzských léka??, radiolog?. Na míst? vše zajiš?uje cca 50-letá hospodyn? z Holandska. D?m je situován do luxusní, bezpe?né ?tvrti. K dispozici jsou 4 ložnice s p?íslušenstvím (samostatné WC a koupelna) a spole?ný obývací pokoj s krbem v suterénu a velkou kuchyni ústící do zast?ešeného patia a menší zahrady s malým bazénem. Ložnice v prvním pat?e má ohromnou verandu na které je sprcha a vana. Ta je též uvnit?. Ostatní koupelny mají sprchový kout.

Vše je vybaveno s francouzským vkusem a elegancí.

V dom? je k dispozici výborn? fungující vyskorychlostní internet.

Je k dispozici pra?ka, my?ka nádobí atd. atd..

celá oblast je vyhlášené vinicemi a kvalitními restauracemi. Restaurace v m?st? Franschhoek jsou pov?stné svojí kvalitou. Cena je prakticky srovnatelná s pr?m?rem pražských restaurací, úrove? o 1-2 t?ídy vyšší.

Spojeni s letišt?m v Kapském m?st? po dálnici cca 55 km.

teplé po?así je prakticky zaru?ené a golfových h?iš? je v okolí do 30-40 km více než 10. Hráli jsem na 5 z nich a všechna byla výborná. Specialitou je pracovník s vysíla?kou na 8 jamce, který dle vašeho výb?ru z jídelního lístku zajistí objednávku na ob?erstvení mezi dv?ma devítkami. Cena 9 jamek je 500-700 K?, 18 jamek pak dvojnásobná.

V blízkosti ubytování jsou též ve?ejné tenisové kurty cca a velký supermarket cca -15 minut ch?ze ?i 5 minut autem.

Byla to nádherná gurmánská a golfová dovolená.

Kdo nebyl v Jižní Africe a? tuto možnost vyzkouší stojí to za to.

History and modern life - in 1 house! Stílusos!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to spend a nice holiday in SA.

Gyönyör?en berendezett, jól felszerelt hàz. Kényelmes és ízléses, szépen karban tartott. Nagyon ajánlott!! A forró napokon jól esett a fürdés a medencében és a pihenés a szép lugas alatt, a teraszon.

Nagyon biztonságos vidék. Sok sok borász található a közelben. Kisgyermekeseknek is ideális, vannak gyerekágyak is. Sok sok apró figyelmességet rejt a ház, minden szegletében. Nagyon gratulàlunk a tulajdonosoknak!

Charmante Unterkunft in wunderbarer Umgebung

  • 4 of 5

Wir sind erfahrene Südafrika-Urlauber und dementsprechend hoch waren unsere Erwartungen als wir uns für eine Selfcatering-Unterkunft in Franschhoek entschieden haben. Und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht! Die Vermieter und das Houskeeping-Team vor Ort waren sehr angenehm..

Das Haus ist einfach schön, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und liegt in einer sehr netten Gegend Franschhoeks von der man fußläufig alles erreichen kann. Und das haben wir mit Genuß getan, Spaziergänge auch abends sind hier kein Problem. Total entspannt in einem der schönsten Orte im Kap! Der Garten gefällt durch das fantastische Bergpanaroma im Hintergrund und seine typische Vegetation, die alte Palme allein ist ein Grund hier zu wohnen. Nach einer Abkühlung im Pool (zum schwimmen ist er allerdings etwas zu klein) kann man sich auf der rustikalen Schaukel von der Sonne wärmen lassen, der selbstverständlich vorhandene Grill lädt zum gemütlichen Braii (BBQ) auf der Terrasse ein, dabei man sitzt unter einer weinbewachsenen Pergola . Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, so dass auch aufwendiges Kochen und Backen Spaß macht.

Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist generell zweckmässig und geschmackvoll. Die französischen Betten sind für "raumgreifende" Schläfer eine kleine Herausforderung, aber im Studio unter dem Reetdach ist ausreichend Platz für ein Paar mit größeren Raumansprüchen. Insbesondere das Badezimmer dort ist sehr luxiriös. Die Dachterrasse (mit Außendusche) ermöglicht wunderbare Ausblicke auf die Sonnenaufgänge hinter den Bergen.

Das Erdgeschoß ist komplett rollstuhlgängig, ebenso der Zugang zur Terrasse. Die Bäder allerdings nur für Rollstuhlfahrer mit der Möglichkeit ein paar Schritte zu gehen gut zu nutzen, hier empfiehlt sich Rücksprache mit dem Vermieter. Alle Duschen sind nicht ebenerdig (1 Stufe), Handgriffe sind nicht vorhanden, aber für kompromissfreudige, reiseerfahrene bzw. "fitte" Rollifahrer ist das machbar.

Sportfreunde (Golf, Mountainbiking etc.) und Liebhaber der gehobenen bis hin zur Spitzenküche sind in Franschhoek richtig. Es ist aber auch ein wunderbarer Standort für Ausflüge in die Winelands (Paarl, Stellenbosch), für Tagesausflüge ins Westcap oder in die weiterliegenden Wein- und Obstregionen. Kapstadt und Umgebung sind ebenfalls zügig und gut zu erreichen.

Das Klima ist angenehm, Naturschauspiele inkludiert: unglaublicher Sternenhimmel, Sonnenaufgänge und -untergänge, aufregende Passfahrten und Wind- und Wolkenspiele. Vorsicht, das kann süchtig machen.
