We cannot recommend Fleur Du Soleil enough.
We had originally booked for 2 nights but end up staying a 3rd night because we enjoyed it so much. Tina was a lovely host who went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. She was full of suggestions for things to do, and even made advance dinner reservations for us at Roca for our first night (superb). She even gave me a bottle of non-alcoholic sparkling wine because I am pregnant and unable to partake the specialties of the area with my husband. The house is warm & cozy and rooms have every comfort imaginable. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is divine. This was the most wonderful BabyMoon! Highly recommended and we definitely will be going back!

Our room was so spacious and stylish!
We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fleur du Soleil, our room was so spacious and stylish and we enjoyed the balcony with the view of the mountains.
We are particularly grateful to you for booking Roca for us which was a highlight of our trip.
Shelley and Derek Pitter, U.K.
Your guesthouse was one of the highlights of our trip.
Elana and I would like to take this opportunity and thank you and your staff for a most memorable stay. Your guesthouse was one of the highlights of our trip. It is extremely comfortable, well managed, friendly and offers everything one could wish for as a home-away-from-home. Its location was ideal in that our twice daily trips into the main street were quick and convenient.

Out of 10, I would give them an 11!
I have had the pleasure of staying at a guesthouse in Franschhoek a couple of times and if anyone is looking for a place to stay, I highly recommend this guesthouse. It is called Fleur du Soliel. Fleur du Soliel is owned and run by a very friendly lady named Tina. As I am a very fussy and meticulous person, the guesthouse met all my standards and more. The guesthouse is absolutely spotless, and tranquil. The service I received from everyone was outstanding. The food served is also outstanding. Out of 10, I would give them an 11.
Their website is www.fleurdusoleil.co.za – check it out, it is exactly as it is advertised.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Good afternoon Tina,
We would like to say firstly that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Western Cape, what a fantastic area to visit and we will definitely be coming back for another trip (hopefully soon!).
We cannot really fault any aspect of our stay at the Fleur du Soleil. The room was great, It had everything we needed and was always well maintained; the breakfast options were brilliant and the pool area was perfect for relaxing after a long day of tourism!
The service we received was fantastic from every member of staff who all seemed very friendly and happy to help when asked.
A big thank you to yourself and all at the Fleur.
Stephen, Holly and Jon, U.K.
Wonderful time in Fleur du Soleil
We had a wonderful time in Fleur du Soleil. The hospitality was great, the room luxurious and the breakfast was also very good.

Fleur du Soleil made us feel like we were at home
Thanks for a lovely stay. Our 3 days made us feel like we were at home. We also want to send a couple of hugs to your staff for breakfast and cleaning.
We all hope to be able to come back one day.
With extremely friendly regards from Sweden
Staying at Fleur du Soleil was really an absolute delight!
Good morning from a snowy cold Istanbul…we want to jump back on a flight directly to Franschhoek!!
Thank you so much for your email. Staying at Fleur du Soleil was really an absolute delight – we loved everything about it. We loved it. I travel nearly every week and if I could stay at your place everywhere I went, I would be a very happy man.
It was great to meet you.
Aysegul and Trev
Although we only had a very short visit we felt very welcomed. Lovely owner and staff who all made our time there enjoyable. Very homely and comfortable not forgetting the superb breakfasts by the pool.
Anita and Rob Cheeseman, England
We stayed here a couple of weeks ago, we have stayed in the village a few times but this is by far the most comfortable place we have stayed, I would definately recomend this lovely B&B/boutique hotel to anyone. The owner and partner couldn’t have been more helpful, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the pool and garden were tranquil with everything you need for a restful time, even sun cream!
Attention to detail was better than most 5 star hotels. Breakfast was yummy produced by helpful smiling staff, I could go on and on but recommend you try it.
“Best b&b in Franschhoek!”
Having stayed at most of the b&b establishments in Franschhoek, along with all the five star hotels, I feel qualified to say that Fleur du Soleil is truly exceptional!
The beautiful home is a joy to walk in to, with an exquisite garden and lovely pool area. The rooms are more than comfortable, they are wonderful! Attention to detail in the rooms is extraordinary- the beds and linen, the big fluffy bath towels, complimentary chocolates, sparkling wine and water in your own room fridge, Charlotte Rhys toiletries, every room with flat screen tv and tea/coffee (good quality ground coffee) facilities with delicious biscuits. Breakfast is incredible, the quality and the generous quantity of locally sourced ingredients, make sure you reserve late lunch bookings!
All this, and the nicest staff you could wish to meet! I can’t wait to be back.
“My stay at Fleur du Soleil”
Fleur du Soleil was absolutely beautiful. Tina was so lovely and accommodating and made us feel really welcome.
The room was lovely and looked as stunning as it does in the pictures.
Breakfasts were amazing and we felt really looked after.
I will definitely be back!
The B&B is simply lovely, rooms are beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Lots of lovely touches wth fresh milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge. I love that there were UK adaptors in the room, they are so easy to forget!
Our room opened out onto the pool and it would have been great to have been able to make more use of this and the pool area, unfortunately the weather had other ideas!! That said, we did manage to eat breakfast outside on a couple of mornings.
There is also a communal lounge area which you are welcome to use, another nice touch that means you don’t have to sit in your room, if you don’t want to.
What really sets Fleur Du Soleil apart is the service we received from Tina, Pat and the team. It started before we even arrived, Tina was in touch as soon as the booking was made, offering her assistance with reservations etc. I had made a number of reservations however still needed a little help, Tina followed up with restaurants for me and also arranged our taxis etc. This was much appreciated. We arrived early and our room was ready, always a good start! We were cutting it fine for a lunch reservation so Pat ran us down, again completely unexpected and a nice touch
This was our 3rd time in Franschhoek and we always try to stay somewhere different but when we return I will be breaking that rule! Tina has only been open for less than a year so by the time everyone else realises she is here it may become a little harder to get a room at this wonderful place.
Stayed March 2016, travelled as a couple
Lovely accommodation, a short walk from the town centre.
The beds are extremely comfortable.
Breakfasts were brilliant. Everything is very clean . All staff were friendly and made you feel welcome.
Lovely little B&B
My husband and I spent 2 nights at Fleur du Soleil. We were very impressed. it is located within walking distance from the main road in Franschhoek and close to many excellent restaurants. friendy staff, great breakfast in a tranquil setting.
December 2015, travelled as a couple
A very special place
We spent two nights staying at Fleur de Soleil and were impressed on so many levels; right from, the quality of the rooms, to the special and well thought out practical touches providing guests with a more personal look and feel, and most of all, the warm and friendly welcome and presence from Tina, and her team.
It was a really tranquil and relaxing place to be, I had the most comfortable nights sleep in the luxurious bed. Location wise, it was within such easy walking access of the town, making it the perfect weekend getaway.
As an overall benchmark for people looking at places to stay in Franschoek, we had spent one lovely night in a nearby premier wine farm which we really enjoyed, however, I would easily say Fleur de Soleil won hands down in terms of a place to stay. I will be back.
Thank you for a wonderful stay in Franschhoek, made very special by your
warmth and hospitality at Fleur du Soleil. Your guest house is gorgeous and top class, with special touches to make us feel welcome and very much at home. And what a treat it was to be able to head out on our travels having had a sumptuous, most delicious breakfast. Many thanks, and we shall be back!
Belinda & Brian Plimsoll, Cape Town, May 2015
What a fabulous stay we had at your delightful guest house!
We would like to reiterate what a fabulous stay we had at your delightful guest house. You really have a world class establishment while maintaining a very relaxed and homely atmosphere. A huge thank you for all your advise on the surrounding wine farms and gorgeous restaurants, it was extremely helpful.
We look forward to our next stay and another scrumptious continental breakfast- best we’ve ever been served in South Africa!!
