From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
This contemporary Cape-Dutch property overlooks vineyards and orchards, and is surrounded by "a delightful French garden," hence the perfect design score. Service veers from "a little distant to truly excellent." Rooms "are tastefully decorated" with neutral tones. At Le Verger, dine alfresco in the orchard on perfect-scoring European, Asian, and African dishes. Breakfast at La Pavilion is "the best anywhere, and I've been to all seven continents!"

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The 63-room Franschhoek is an impressive renovation of one of this wine-growing valley's original country retreats. Not only is it a desirable base for vineyard touring but there are plenty of on-the-premises pastimes: wine-tastings, tennis, and unwinding in the big pool. Interiors are sophisticated and uncluttered, with an all-white palette accented by metallic shades—a bit monotonous but the perfect foil to the dramatic mountain scenery. The grand main restaurant is reminiscent of a silver-service hotel dining room, and the outdoor restaurant, Le Verger, is enchantingly set amid lemon, apple, and pear trees. —2006 Hot List
