Résidence Klein Oliphants Hoek


French farmhouse retreat in the heart of Franschhoek

The décor at Klein Oliphants Hoek Boutique Hotel  echoes the heritage of the small town it calls home. Franschhoek’s (literally French corner) initial inhabitants were French Huguenot refugees who left an indelible mark on the area after being given a plot of land, then known as Oliphantshoek (Elephant’s corner), by the Dutch government. 

With its largely unspoilt Cape Dutch architecture, neat, tree-lined streets and excellent wine farms, Franschhoek is now a remarkably popular romantic and cultural getaway, hosting some of South Africa’s best restaurants, oldest wine farms and dearly-loved festivals. The Franschhoek Motor Museum houses four warehouses containing an excellent vintage car collection, while the Huguenot Museum in town celebrates the original settlers in the area and Solms Delta Museum celebrates South African cultural heritage. 

Originally established as a mission station in 1888, guests today will find Klein Oliphants Hoek Hotel decorated in an elegant French farmhouse style, making the most of the original structures’ high ceilings and wooden floors. The hotel offers 8 tastefully decorated, en-suite rooms, some with private plunge pools, Jacuzzis or courtyards. In the summer months, guests can unwind on a lounger at the pool, enjoy breakfast on the terrace and a book on the veranda. Winter time will bring patrons closer to the cosy bar and library for a game of chess or a glass of cognac.
