Escape to a Rarified Winelands Retreat

Renowned for having some of South Africa’s top award-winning restaurants and a legendary wine culture, Franschhoek appeals to those with the most refined of palettes. With Fleur du Soleil Luxury Guesthouse, as an indulgent refuge during their guests’ stay, their visit to this part of the world is nothing but rarified. The luxurious, boutique guest house is in the heart of Franschhoek in a tranquil, quiet area, yet only few minutes’ walk to everything the Village has to offer. Here guests don’t just find hospitality. They experience rejuvenation of self and reclamation of time.

To Fleur du Soleil, true service is an experiential sense of belonging. It is a dedicated, intuitive focus on how guests want to be treated, grounded in the genuine care experienced during their stay, defined by an abundance of humanity and generosity. This starts with the guest house’s passionate team, welcoming guests to be the very centre of their world, all staff united as a team to make Fleur du Soleil guests’ home away from home.

Be it local information or a dining reservation guests require, or perhaps organizing activities, day trips, or outdoor adventures, the dedicated team at Fleur du Soleil will ensure everything is catered to well in advance and during guests’ stay. From the every-day to the impossible, the staff are poised to make any request guests have a reality.

Configured over two levels to maximize space and freedom of movement, five sumptuous guest suites are centralized around the expansive pool area. The simplistic layout creates easy flow from guest suites to any of the amenities. Each with its own unique interior design aesthetic and ambiance, Fleur du Soleil’s fully serviced suites are the definition of guest centric. Guests’ every comfort and convenience are catered to with loving precision.

Guests will either find themselves in the French Baroque meets Steampunk Bougainvilliers’ suite, or perhaps in the lavish but relaxed Le Coucher Suite offering staggering mountain views from the private balcony. Each with a distinct flavour sure to delight, the remaining suites, Cabane, Vignobles, and Fleur du Soleil, are veritable destinations rather than mere rooms.

Within the Fleur du Soleil walls, attention to detail is a habit, not a mere task. True attention to detail cannot be found in a manual. The luxury guesthouse’s hiring practices, staff training, and team working conditions remain ever elevated so that our guests feel valued, understood, and always cared for. It’s through all the invisible details we transcend the ordinary.

With a commitment to supporting the local community, they have ensured that every detail in every suite – from the light fittings, decorations, to the fabrics, linens, artwork, and furniture; from the dining cutlery to their staff uniforms, down to guests’ complimentary bathroom toiletries – everything is locally sourced and created by resident artists, designers, and craftsmen.

For breakfast, fresh seasonal fruits and organic produce are hand-selected from neighbouring sustainable producers and farms. Freshly baked croissants are table-delivered daily, served with mouthwatering handmade artisanal preserves. With zero tolerance for wastage including biodegradable containers and utensils, Fleur du Soleil’s commitment to a greener planet remains unwavering.

The doors are always open at Fleur du Soleil Luxury Guesthouse, where everything our guests touch, taste, feel, and see is an immersion into South Africa’s vibrant, eclectic culture. Wamkelekile akhaya – welcome home.
