Winelands Self Catering Accommodation Franschhoek

Bedside Manor

Self Catering Accommodation in Franschhoek - Winelands, South Africa

Reviewed: September 2011

We arrived late on Friday afternoon to a cold Franschhoek; we were warmly welcomed by Rika who opened up the house for us, showed us around and made us feel right at home.

The house instantly warmed up with heaters in every room and under carpet heating in the lounge, we almost forgot about the icy conditions outside.

Each room is uniquely decorated in a French provincial style, with the sense of tranquillity spreading throughout the house. There is clearly a lot of thought and an enormous amount of effort that went into creating the perfect living space for guests to enjoy. We couldn't help but feel like we were living in luxury.

They say that first impressions count and Bedside Manor certainly delivers. No expense has been spared in the equipping of this villa - it is thoroughly modern and luxurious and the attention to detail in every fitting and fixture is astounding.

With full DSTV, a range of DVD's and a bottle of wine provided, Friday night at Bedside Manor was the perfect end to a long week. After much discussion about which one of the two rooms to sleep in we finally settled into one of the gorgeously decorated bedrooms and had a well rested night.

We woke up to a beautiful sunny morning and enjoyed a cup of percolated coffee on the veranda while soaking up the peacefulness of our surrounds before heading out for the day. Saturday was spent exploring Franschhoek and its spectacular wine farms and interacting with the local community. After a long, exciting day in the hustle and bustle of the town we both looked forward to the calmness and serenity that awaited us at the house.

Fortunately the weather was warm enough for us to have a braai and enjoy the evening outside by the pool. This house is the perfect setting for a relaxing break from everyday life and we certainly left feeling rested and rejuvenated for the week to come.
