Guestbook comments from the owner

We have now visited and stayed at Sala Kahli Lodge 3 times in the past 3 years and have booked for the next 2 years ahead. It is simply a wonderful place to stay - we enjoy the serenity, the closenest to the village and the wonderful views. The lodge is furnished to the highest standard.

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us stayed here at the end of October 2008. The property is amazing, having been built with such attention to detail and with great thought. The rooms are all extremely spacious and the outside dining area offers a welcome place to sit, enjoy the views and sip the local wine. The maid prepared our beds, cleaned, tidied and was more than happy to go the extra mile in ensuring that our stay was as comfortable as possible.

If you are staying in the Franschooek area, this is a must! It is a great location surrounmded by wonderful scenery and vineyards.

We can't wait to return to SA or to stay here again.

Franschhoek (French Corner) is where the French Huguenots settled in 1689; it is considered the gourmet and wine capital of South Africa and is set in a a unique valley that is almost surrounded by wonderful mountains. It is the most visited village in South Africa. Stellenbosch, the second oldest city in South Africa, is a 20 minute drive away with its wonderful history, architecture, and relaxed shopping and this scenic drive is not to be missed. Cape Town is an hours motorway drive away and offers the visitor Table Mountain, a trip to Robben Island, great shopping, Parliament House, the Old Fort, and the wonderful V & A Marina and shopping centre where one can watch seals over a wonderful lunch and glass of Chardonnay. If one wants to venture further afield one can tour the Cape of Good Hope penninsula and take a swim with the penguins at Boulders Beach.
