      This property is stunning and the staff are so friendly and warm. We really enjoyed our stay here, perfect base for us in Franschhoek

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      James, the owner, is incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. He is passionate about his customers and their well-being. Maison Chablis is a short walk from the townsite of Franschhoek where restaurants and art galleries abound. We walked everywhere even in the evenings without any issues. The breakfast at Maison Chablis was abundant and our room was large with a comfortable king bed. There are not fitness facilities but it is a boutique hotel so none were expected. We would highly recommend Maison Chablis for anyone wanting to stay in Franschhoek.
