The Area

Welcome to Stellenbosch – South Africa’s second oldest town and most inspiring wine, food, art and cultural destination. The scenic Stellenbosch Wine Route is the oldest in the country and one of the most popular destinations for local and international visitors alike. Our beautiful town will introduce you to unforgettable cellar door experiences, award-winning wine estates, celebrated restaurants, and Stellenbosch’s unique and enviable lifestyle.


The farm is located right at the heart of Devon Valley, 5km from Stellenbosch Central, one of the most popular travel destinations in the country.

Our guests often remark on how Fransmanskraal feels so secluded, but it is in fact just a 10-minute drive from the bustling town.
