About Us

About The Coach House

With eight unique and beautifully designed rooms to choose from when you stay with us, a luscious outdoor pool and a beautiful garden area, this is accommodation that is unapologetically perfect for your visit to Franschhoek.

This charming house was built in the year 1897, making it the perfect place for you to stay while you tour this historical area of South Africa. Since then, the house our guests know and love, has been beautifully renovated with sympathy for its original character and charm.

Solo travellers, couples and friend groups will enjoy our spacious rooms that come with double beds, with some that can be converted into twin beds for your convenience. In the mornings, wake up in paradise with breakfast waiting – a buffet-style continental that can be enjoyed in our Breakfast Room or under the stoop, allowing you to take in the stunning views at the break of dawn. What a start to the day!
