The Last Word Franschhoek


A Huguenot-style villa which has been beautifully restored using a fusion of the classic with the contemporary, The Last Word is just seconds away from many wonderful restaurants, boutiques and galleries. The village is also surrounded by major wine estates, which guests can visit and have tutored wine tastings.

With just ten rooms, two of which have access to private pools, it offers comfort and charm in an elegant and relaxed environment and enjoys a superb central location.
