A sophisticated Cape chateau

In homage to its location in South Africa’s very own French corner, L’Ermitage Chateau & Villas epitomises a French village thanks to its enchanting architecture, cobbled streets, manicured gardens, and a plethora of fountains. Surrounded by fynbos, vineyards and mountains, and only a short drive from Franschhoek’s village centre, this is a superb base for those wanting to explore the Cape Winelands and those looking for a quick breakaway only 45min from Cape Town.

Attracting romantics, daredevils, foodies, nature lovers and artistic aficionados alike, Franschhoek has something that will appeal to everyone. Whether it's paragliding over the valley, sampling the fare at some of the best restaurants in the country, hiking in the surrounding mountains, or stopping by art galleries, guests are sure to be constantly entertained.

Perfect for couples, families, and friends, L’Ermitage Chateau & Villas offers several Chateaus and a number of one- to three-bedroom Villas. Each is equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, a mini-bar, tea/coffee-making facilities and a balcony or terrace.
