Plumwood Inn, in the Cape Winelands town of Franschhoek, is a comfortable guesthouse close to the main street running through the village. Expect intimate, personal service with attention to detail.
Situated on a quiet street off the main road in Franschhoek - truth be told all the streets in Franschhoek are quiet - Plumwood Inn is a quality boutique guest house offering quiet sophistication in a town that strives towards its own quiet sophistication and not without a dash of parochial charm.
Plumwood Inn has 11 rooms of different sizes and levels of luxury - you may find navigating the options is a bit like trying to solve Rubic's cube. There are four rooms in the main house and three in a subsequent villa. While the décor of each room is unique the bright and jazzy style and a sufficient level of luxury are common to all. Opt for the luxury rooms, if your budget allows, for extra space, extra-length king size beds, glorious showers, underfloor heating and a private balcony.
Breakfasts are a feature at Plumwood Inn and a meal good enough to keep you going through an arduous day exploring Franschhoek Valley.

Beyond the tranquil grounds, the charming village of Franschhoek awaits and beyond that there are more than 40 wine farms to visit - advice from Lucienne and Roel will be well-heeded here - as well as nature trails, mountain walks, scenic drives and a constant bill of elegant activities in and around town.

Evergreen Manor is a charming guesthouse smack in the centre of charming (if a little bustling) Stellenbosch, which is smack in the centre of the Cape's Wine Country.
