Franschhoek
Franschhoek was originally known as Olifants Hoek, after elephants took to calving in the sheltered valley of plentiful food and water. In 1694, nine farms were apportioned to Hugenots fleeing persecution in France. Finding the climate similar to that of France, the settlers planted vines. Today (21) members of the Vignerons produce wines consumed throughout the world. Franschhoek is well known for its excellent restaurants, top accommodation establishments, splendid mountains and openhearted hospitality. Spend time browsing its many arts-and-craft shops, galleries and antique stores.
Franschhoek the charming village and beautiful wine valley. Stay here to discover the Cape.

History and culture

After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in France in1685, when Protestantism was outlawed,hundreds of so-called Huguenots fled their homeland, 277 of them arriving by ship at the Cape of Good Hope. Many of them were given land by the Dutch government in a valley called Oliphantshoek named because of the vast herds of elephants that roamed the area. Soon after they settled there it became known as Franschhoek, meaning French corner. This heritage lives on today with the Huguenot monument standing proudly at the end of the village.
