The Last Word Franschhoek

The Last Word Franschhoek, Winelands

The Last Word fits well into the heart of the food and wine fantasy that is Franschhoek, in the Western Cape of South Africa. This historical residence has been carefully restored in the Cape Huguenot tradition, reflecting a French flair but a Cape culture. The Last Word Franschhoek is a chic boutique guest house offering guests sumptuous breakfasts and well-appointed rooms looking over the Franschhoek mountains.

Set back from the main road in beautiful courtyard gardens, the Last Word Franschhoek features a small swimming pool around which have been hung some incredible mosaic art – created by the artists of Mandela Park Mosaics in Hout Bay.

The Last Word Franschhoek Overview

The atmosphere at The Last Word resembles that of a private home with only six luxurious suites enticing a small number of visitors to enjoy all facilities. All spacious en suite bedrooms open out into private patio areas while two suites offer guests plunge pools and private paved gardens with sun loungers.

Facilities in the elegant yet pretty rooms include underfloor heating, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV and air-conditioning – three themes complete the decor and a laundry service is also available. Meet other guests over a glass of wine in the open bar then head out to one of many exclusive restaurants in Franschhoek.

This historical Cape village was founded in 1688 when hundreds of French Huguenots arrived on ships at the Cape of Good Hope, fleeing their homeland. Now the area is renowned for its French food, wine estates and beautiful gardens. The Last Word Franschhoek fits well into this ‘French Corner’ and attracts visitors from far and wide to its intimate rooms and service.

Special touches include staying in at night to munch on biltong and popcorn while watching a DVD from the hotel’s selection, instead of eating out again. Delicious buffet breakfasts complete with cooked choices satisfy all appetites in the sunny breakfast room – or have it served on the private bedroom patio.
