Tour Description

Franschhoek

Franschhoek (French corner) is one of the oldest towns in South Africa and has a strong French history and influence as this is where the French Huguenot refugees settled in 1688. Many of the refugees chose to name their farms after the regions in France from which they came. La Motte, La Dauphine, Champagne, La Cotte, Cabrière, La Provence, Bourgogne and La Terra de Luc are examples of original Huguenot wine farms which today not only retain their original classic Cape Dutch architecture but have also grown to produce some of the world’s best wines.
