Dieu Donne Guest Farm in Franschhoek Goes Eco-Active with Bike & Saddle
Planning a trip to Franschhoek? Well now you can book yourself into one of the luxury cottages at Dieu Donne Guest Farm, a stone's throw from the hussle and bussle of the village's main road while still enjoying the tranquility and magnificent views of the valley from your porch - and have the option of walking into town or taking one of our bicycles to explore the treasures of this magnificent wine growing area.
'Afrikaans, English or
bi-sexual’ is Gerrit Pieterse's welcoming gambit. ‘Coffee, tea, milk, whisky, beer, wine or lemoncello for the thirsty...?’ It is all a bit of a teaser at 7am in the morning but his quips soon will have you hold your belly laughing. And his cooking will have you want to stay for a while.
Rent your bicycle from Dieu Donne, including a helmet, bike lock, pump and patch kit - and make the most of your stay.
Or book a guided three hour cycle, sampling some of the area's best wines, while learning more about the fascinating history of franschhoek.
And then there's a half-or full day escorted bike trip, including a picnic lunch, three to five tastings, a cellar tour or two and against the back-drop of the majestic Limiet Berg, circle the Berg River Dam for some of the most breathtaking mountain rides outside of Cape Town.
