akademie street, franschhoek

akademie street hotel franschhoek

The fabulous Akademie Street Boutique Hotel has 6 rooms in five unique buildings, all situated on the same beautiful property in a quiet area of Franschhoek.

Akademie Street offers the kind of personal service that only a very small, family-owned and managed, five-star luxury guest house can give, and it is an easy stroll to the village centre, where you can explore the fabulous restaurants of Franschhoek.


Each of the rooms at Akademie is unique. Three have their own private garden and swimming pool, while the other three share a large solar heated pool.

Oortuiging (a place of conviction), is a spacious historical cottage furnished with Cape-style antiques, comprising of two bedrooms and a kitchen and lounge. It lies in the shade of a great white stinkwood tree and opens onto a sun-kissed garden with a private plunge pool.

The charming garden suite Vreugde (joy), sleeps two and its guests have their own private garden with a plunge pool and patio.

Gelatenheid is a regal double storey villa overlooking a long swimming pool and fountain garden. This villa houses an enormous loft bedroom, sitting room, romantic outside bath, spacious lounge and kitchenette, with French doors leading onto the garden and pool.

Uitsig, a light-filled upstairs suite, offers lovely views of the Franschoek mountains with the garden and pool below.

Twyfeling houses two beautiful large suites, along with the reception, library and dining rooms, and shares a solar-heated pool with Uitsig.

All of the different Akademie Street rooms join through winding pathways and meet at the beautiful site of Twyfeling - the Cape Dutch main home where breakfasts are served under a vine-covered patio by your delightful hosts, Katherine and Arthur.
