Résidence Klein Oliphants Hoek


gallery


We checked in at our hotel for the evening – Residence Klein Oliphantshoek. It’s Franschhoek through and through – charming, rustic and crammed full of antiques and character. Each of the eight rooms is unique from the Elephant Suite to the Hidden Missionary Room. Not as naughty as it sounds. You see the property was built by an English missionary as a chapel in 1888. It’s also been used as a school and a theatre. The centrepiece is the chapel hall itself with the high vaulted ceiling, fireplace and original beams. The rooms are classically decorated – one suite, hidden up a winding staircase has its own sun deck and outdoor Jacuzzi, while two others have their own private pools. It would be a great place to visit in the winter, not least because of the cosy little cigar lounge, but with the ample verandah and large swimming pool it’s really rather good in the summer as well!

But it’s the passionate Italian host that makes Residence Klein Oliphantshoek so special – Renate Gaggio is passionate and caring and makes every guest feel incredibly special. In the evening we took an easy stroll along the main road with a whole heap of top restaurants to choose from including Le Quartier Francais, Reuben’s and the Grill Room.

After a hearty breakfast on the sun dappled verandah, we packed our bags and reluctantly set off for yet another day of wine tasting...
