Indeed, if you are looking for tranquillity and beauty, you will find it at the Protea Hotel Franschhoek.

The hotel has a rich history, with one section dating back to the 1880s. The town itself takes its name from the French Huguenots who settled here in the early 1820s after fleeing from their home country. Franschhoek has since become one of South Africa's leading culinary and wine-tasting destinations.

Protea Hotel Franschhoek offers a restaurant, conference facilities, luxury accommodation, a sparkling swimming pool and well-stocked vinotique. Our convenient location make it a superb base from which to explore Franschhoek's culinary reputation, art galleries, cheese factories and some 25 wine estates. Various outdoor activities, such as horse-riding, golf, backpacking and trout-fishing, can also be arranged.

Our slogan - The pride of Franschhoek - comes from the exquisite and rare creamy pink flowers of the same name, which are only found in the Franschhoek mountains.
