Renovated 1-bed studio in converted old shop, right the heart of the village. Restaurants & wine farms easily walkable. Quirky & eccentric with exquisite period furniture & art.

A/C with satellite TV & excellent security in one of SA's safest towns. Free Wi-Fi at cafe next door.

The space

Newly converted and renovated old shopfront. Quirky and charming. There are few self-catering options this close to the centre of the Franschhoek village. Offering excellent security in one of South Africa's safest towns, our Tenement has easy, walkable access to just about everything in the village.

Guest access

Our house is your house. The Tenement is adjacent to an upmarket boutique shopping centre with in-house cafe deli and high-end restaurant. Also within walking distance of a major supermarket and the whole Franschhoek high street with five-star dining. A nearby 'tram' provides access to the major wine farms, with Chamonix wine estate just at the top of our street.

Interaction with guests

The place is all yours and we'll be about an hour away in Cape Town. We're regulars to Franschhoek, so our 'insider' advice is just a phone-call or text message away.

Other things to note

Comes with Cable/Satellite TV.

An optional cleaner is available by arrangement at a cost of R300 ($25) per visit.

It was our third stay at Robert's place - it's like our second little home in Franschhoek! Always a great place to come back to.

Quaint apartment ideally located in Franschoek just off of the main road.

Lovely place with a really cool vibe. Very comfortable bed, excellent shower and a nice little patio area to sit out in the evening. Robert is a super helpful host (an excellent restaurant critic!) with lots of useful information and very quick to respond. 2 mins to the supermarket and 5 mins to the centre of town, so location is absolutely perfect.

Home is very well situated.. Within walking distance from food stores and restaurants. The only problem was that my husband who is almost 2meters tall did not properly fit into the bed space.. And I missed it in the photos that the bed is against the wall... But all and all good value for money, would advise it!

Great little studio apartment within easy walking distance of Franschhoek main road - restaurants, shops, etc. The apartment was perfect for a night away, and the bed is super comfy!

A perfect bolt hole from the city on peaceful street off the main road in Franschhoek. Lovely Art Deco furnishings adorn this comfortable suite of a tenement. Definitely coming back!
