Jean Blignaut left the village of Bligny, France with the Huguenots at the beginning of the 18th century for the Cape. Some 300 years later the legacy of Bligny and the French Huguenots continue at our Auberge in the beautiful village of Franschhoek.
The 1860 Victorian homestead in the historic centre of the village has been converted into a guesthouse two decades ago. The rooms are furnished with pieces reminding of days gone by. It’s situated within easy walking distance of top South African restaurants; wine farms; fromagerie, chocolaterie, shops and galleries. A country breakfast is served – in winter around the fireplace and summer on the terrace overlooking the pool and mountains.
The guesthouse has seven en-suite bedrooms each with a private entrance; a luxury loft room and interleading family rooms.Rates include an English breakfast and all the charm of Auberge Bligny. Please refer to "Rooms, rates and bookings" for pictures and more details on rates and facilities.
The little village of Franschhoek is set in what is arguably the most beautiful valley in the country. Its high mountains of patchwork vineyard and forest cradle this carefully preserved village that has become the jewel of our winelands. Franchhoek is famous for many of the finer things of life. Some of the worlds best cuizine, wine, cheese, olives and chocolate can be discovered here, not to mention its fascinating history laid bare in its architecture, museums and monuments, or the splendour of its surrounding nature. Franschhoek is also a short drive away for daytrips to Cape Town, the coast, the wider winelands area and the garden route.
