Avondrood is one of the finest guest houses in the Cape winelands, offering plush four star accommodation.
Avondrood Guest House is situated in Franschhoek. There is perhaps no better place to experience the Cape winelands than this charming town amidst the mountains. With a rich history that dates back to the seventeenth century, and breathtaking natural scenery all around, it is no surprise Franschhoek has become a tourism hotspot. The area was named after the French Huguenots that settled in the area in the seventeenth century; ‘Franschhoek’ translates to “French corner”. As the French are known for their accomplished wine making skills, it is no surprise that some of the oldest vineyards in South Africa were planted in Franschhoek.
Avondrood Guest House forms part of the unique history of Franschhoek, as the original Victorian building that now forms the guest house dates back to 1870, and it is also heritage site. There are eight spacious rooms to choose from. The rooms are divided into one Standard Deluxe Room, three Superior Rooms, three Superior Deluxe Rooms, and one Family Deluxe Suite. All the rooms have extended king size beds, air-conditioning, a mini bar, coffee and tea station, LCD television, iPod docking station, DVD/CD player and en suite bathrooms. All the rooms - except the Standard Deluxe – boast Victorian-style bathtubs. There are also extra twin beds in the Family Deluxe Suite and two of the Superior Deluxe Rooms have their own fire places.
Avondrood serves an exceptional hot and cold breakfast every morning. Additionally, there is an abundance of restaurants and wine farms where lunch and dinner can be enjoyed. Avondrood offers complimentary WiFi throughout the garden, public areas and rooms. There is an elegant lounge to relax in while reading or watching television. A fully stocked honesty bar is at your disposal, as well as a large saltwater swimming pool and a heated Jacuzzi.
For those who want to maintain their fitness while traveling, Avondrood offers discounts at the Franschhoek Gym and Health Club a five-minute walk away. The health club offers access to a sauna, an indoor swimming pool, a wellness café and a wide range of equipment. Simply hiking around Franschhoek – particularly within the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve - is also highly enjoyable.
