Ashbourne House

Alluring Ashbourne & the Franschhoek Winelands

Franschhoek is known primarily as being one of the foodie hubs of South Africa with its array of fine dining options, award-winning restaurants, and a variety of wine farms. There’s plenty more to see and do, though—from nature trails and hiking to exploring the town’s colourful history, its art galleries, markets, and chocolatiers. Opportunities are endless, and the elegant Ashbourne House brings all these opportunities to you.
The first Europeans to settle in Franschhoek were French Huguenots, but the area’s history goes back even further than that—to the time when bushmen lived in the surrounding mountains and elephants called the valley floor home. Today, though, it acts as a tranquil and exceedingly romantic getaway within easy driving distance of the city of Cape Town.
Ashbourne House’s 8 elegantly-decorated Suites may share similar amenities (a sitting room, breakfast area, air-conditioning, fridge, tea/coffee, TV, Wi-Fi, private-use patio, marble shower bathrooms and more) but no two are the same. Each Suite is uniquely styled and oozes a decided allure. A beauty therapist can be booked to perform spa treatments in the comfort of your own room.
  • No two suites are the same at Ashbourne House and each has top-class amenities and stylish décor
