L’Auberge Chanteclair Franschhoek

Chanteclair Guest House is nestled in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley

Just 75km from Cape Town City centre, Chanteclair is conveniently situated close to the historical village of Franschhoek dating back to the 1600’s, allowing for easy access to the many attractions it offers. If one isn’t taking in the views over a glass of wine, or cooling off in the pool, the more energetic can enjoy a walk through the beautiful, fragrant gardens and fruit orchards, up to the top of the vineyard which offers one a panoramic view of the Franschhoek Valley and an opportunity to enjoy the diverse local bird life. The Franschhoek Valley is renowned for wine making and at Chanteclair we produce our own Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and Malbec.

Chanteclair aims to provide you only with the best.

The main house has five double or twin rooms, one single and two separate detached units, namely, Vine Cottage and The Studio. The rooms in the house are named after the trees adjacent to them in the garden, Jacaranda, Jasmine, Cork Oak, Prunus and Syringa. All our rooms are en suite, some have a fireplace or under-floor heating and all have superb views either to the vineyards or the mountains.

Franschhoek is surrounded by majestic mountains and the views from the front stoep (verandah) and terraces are outstanding. These magnificent mountains provide a superb backdrop for a glass of wine in the evening, before heading into the village to dine at one of Franschhoek’s many highly acclaimed restaurants. Chanteclair is a few minutes from the centre of Franschhoek, known as the gourmet capital of South Africa.
