When one thinks of Africa in general, and of South Africa in particular, world-class wine is perhaps the last image their brains conjure up.

Predictably, there will come a point during your stay in Franschhoek when you've had all the food, fun, and wine a person can handle... in which case, it will be time for bed... but what do you do? Where do you go? A hotel (or other accommodation), of course! Read on to discover both the ins and outs of this charming city, and how HotelSnapper.com can give you both sweet dreams AND a sweet deal on accommodation.

HOW TO GET TO FRANSCHHOEK

The most scenic way to get to Franschhoek is by car, either from Paarl, or the longer, more famous route from Villiersdorp. Taxi service is also available.

THINGS TO DO

As you might imagine, Franschhoek is all about two things: History and gastronomy. The town was originally a French settlement, populated with people on the run from the Inquisition. As such, Franschhoek is a delightful mix of Dutch and French influences. Here is a sample of activities and things to do while you visit:
* What would a good French-influenced city be without a Bastille Day celebration? Want to get a taste of Paris on the cheap? Come to Franschhoek... don't forget to book your hotel early on HotelSnapper.com! You can visit http://www.franschhoek.co.za/bastille.html for more information.
* In addition to their ability to arrange a place to stay and transfers to Cape Town, The Winelands Experience is, as you may have guessed, able to arrange tours of Franschhoek's wine country. They aren't to be missed! To learn more, call +27 021 876 4042 or visit www.winelands.travel .
* Franschhoek, rather than being simply another example of urban sprawl, is compact in the tradition of continental, Old-World cities. As a result, sight-seeing, sampling the food & drink, fishing, and bike tours are the main attractions. History abounds, with churches, memorials, and of course, the wineries themselves ready for your perusal.
