A lush, tree-laden nook of Franschhoek is home to five stately buildings combined to make Akademie Street Boutique Hotel. Family owned and managed, personalised service is a guarantee, whether guests lodge in the old Cape Dutch-style main house, the 1860s cottage, the terraced boutique hotel, the garden suites, or the upstairs suite showcasing magnificent views of the Franschhoek mountains.
Franschhoek is one of the oldest settlements in South Africa. Encompassed by vineyards and looming mountains, guests will be tempted to merely marvel at their surroundings – but there is plenty to be done! Visit wine farms, enjoy wine-tastings on horseback, visit to the plethora of museums and monuments in the area, hike up the mountain, or people-watch at the main street’s numerous sidewalk cafes.
Winding pathways bordered by lush gardens connect Akademie Street Boutique Hotel’s various suites to its main Cape Dutch-style house where breakfast is served. Each suite offers something unique, whether it is the Victorian bath found on a quiet corner of Gelatenheid’s balcony or the sunny conservatory in Twyfeling. All boast tasteful décor, en-suite bathrooms, tea/coffee-making facilities, air-conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi and access to a shared or private swimming pool.
