    Description

    Los Olivos Luxury Penthouses are situated in a serene part of the village, within EASY WALKING DISTANCE of local restaurants, pubs, interesting shops and galleries, giving you an AUTHENTIC TASTE of village life. Surrounded by softly splashing fountains and gently flowing waterways, they are situated at The Yard, an upmarket piazza, with a distinctive European flair.

    They are decorated in a UNIQUE, AFRICAN COLONIAL STYLE using warm, earthy hues and reflecting the diverse heritage of South Africa.

    LUXURY with an attention to detail including heated bathrooms, fleecy dressing gowns, complimentary toiletries and hot water bottles for the chilly winter months and ABSOLUTE COMFORT are all part of the LOS OLIVOS EXPERIENCE.

    In winter, light a fire and spend a cozy evening curled up on one of the comfy sofas with a good book and savour a glass of an excellent locally produced wine.

    In summer, have a leisurely breakfast on the balcony, before taking a stroll through the village.
    Los Olivos will provide you with a warm and welcoming haven from which to explore Franschhoek, so comfortable that it feels like a home from home.

    Guestbook

    This apartment was the perfect base for us from which to organise our daughter's wedding nearby.  The apartment is superbly situated in the middle of the town, but tucked away from any noise, and very well equipped.  Thank you so much for allowing us to stay there!
