Franschhoek – it’s not all bad

Franschhoek - it's not all bad
In yesterday's post I had a little rant about how un-French Saturday's Bastille Day celebrations felt to us. Now while I stick with that opinion, perhaps it's worthwhile mentioning that Franschhoek is actually a really nice little town, a gem of the Cape in fact, and a place that we really do enjoy visiting.

It's exquisitely beautiful, nestled among rolling hills and mountains. Although restaurants tend to be a little on the expensive side, it's still very much worth a visit - and you'd do well to spend a night or two in one of the many guesthouses in the area too.

When visiting, take time to walk around and experience nature as well as to browse the little shops, art galleries, and especially the small (but very popular) chocolate shop in the main street.
