Akademie Street is luxurious and unique, offering a small collection of guesthouses and suites – rich in atmosphere, luxury, peace and privacy. It is the ideal hiding place for the traveller who is no longer impressed with five star hotels.
Comprising just six rooms in five unique buildings all situated on the same beautiful property in a quiet area of the delightful village of Franschhoek. Akademie Street provides a fabulously personal service that only a very small, family-owned and managed, five-star, luxury guest house and boutique hotel can give. Located just a short walk from the high street, you can easily stroll to the village centre, explore its famous restaurants and galleries, or head out into the magnificent countryside for amazing hiking, mountain biking or horse riding.
Akademie Street is generally acclaimed as the number one hotel in Franschhoek and was recently voted as the fifth best small hotel in the world on Tripadvisor.
There are three guest cottages, each with its own private pool surrounded by the garden’s rambling hedges and trees; the feel is as intimate outside as it is within the houses themselves. There are also three suites: two in the Cape-Dutch style main house and one in a freestanding building adjacent to this. These suites share a large solar-heated pool. All have been decorated with an appealing mix of antique and contemporary furnishings.
Franschhoek is only 40 miles from Cape Town.
