TravelPod Member ReviewsErica Guesthouse Franschhoek
Nice, clean accommodation, located a short walk from Franschhoek's main street. Staff was friendly, but the place lacked the personal feel that we've found in other South African guesthouses. Accommodations in Franschhoek can be expensive, but Erica Guesthouse represents good value.

... her knowledge of wine-growing in Europe and locally was impressive. She and her husband started the vineyard 40 years ago. Mr Know-it-all took over so, on occasions we individually made ourselves scarce!!! So that we were not rude to Hildegard.
Onto lunch close by. Said goodbye to the motor bikes - although we were supposed to go back to Capetown on the bikes, the thrill had worn off (after 30 min) so we said to Brad we would like to travel the ...

... Duck and Cherry Pie paired with a Ken Forrester Renegade Cab. Even better than I remembered. In Stellenbosch, did a wine tour with a company called "Easy Riders".

Beautiful views of the Stellenbosch valley, rolling hills covered with vineyards, groves of olive trees, and orchard fruits, outlined by really nice mountains and ...
... in Manenberg how to do BP, pulse, and respirations because the two med students didn't know how. So I, an SLP student, got to teach medical students at the University of Cape Town how to take blood pressures, pulses, and respiration rates. Since they needed the practice way more than I did because they really need to know how to do it, I let them do most of that stuff because I don't see myself doing any of that again. The first half was actually a little tedious. ...
... to La Petite Ferme on the hill, keen to arrive early so there is no chance of missing our estate tour. We are offered a glass of water and told the tour will start shortly. Would we like to wait in the garden next to the vines where the tour will start? Yes, of course. The view is stunning. Of course we’ll happily wait there!
Wait, we do. We sit on the bench with our glass of water, settle back, and sigh in peace. This view ...
