A beautiful cottage in superb condition

  • 5 of 5

Chenin Cottage is beautifully furnished, well equiped and maintained. The lounge/dining room is double height with an African theme, very impressive and at the same time comfortable and functional. Bedrooms of equal size with very nice en-suite bathrooms and nice fluffy towels. Pool is well situated and we swam in it every day of our stay. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 glorious weeks in Chenin Cottage. The weather was absolutely beautiful which meant we could spend a lot of time by the large swimming pool.The pool is surrounded by a tall,thick hedge making it very private.

The house is incredibly well equipped.

The location is very handy for all the restaurants in Franschhoek,a ten minute stroll into town with a Pick & Pay supermarket at the end of the road. We bought some sausages at Stellanbosch market and brought them back to cook on the gas fired barbecue.Even though it was usually 90 degrees during the day,the inside of the house doesn't get too hot.The bedrooms are air conditioned if you want it but we didn't need to turn it on.Although there were only 2 of us the house is ideally suited for 2 couples in the way that it is laid out.We had a lovely time and i would recommend Chenin Cottage to anybody.

Wat een smaakvol ingericht knus huis met heel veel privacy, goed beveiligd.

Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien de ligging is perfect lopend naar het prachtige dorpje met zijn heerlijke restaurants. De omgeving is prachtig. We hebben nog gebruik gemaakt van het appartement in Kaapstad van dezelfde eigenaren de combinatie is een dikke aanrader. Nogmaals in een woord geweldig!
