On the slopes of the Franschhoek Pass, amidst sweeping tracts of fynbos, lies the exclusive village of L'ermitage set within the secure grounds of the prestigious Fransche Hoek Estate, nestled between Chamonix and Haute Cabriere.

Within the village is also the fine-dining Sixteen-88 restaurant, and for picnics or home entertaining you’ll be spoilt for choice at L’ermitage’s own sumptuous delicatessen.

For guests seeking a unique wellness experience there is the very special Skin and Body Sanctuary. 

It’s just the place to make sure that the peace of L’ermitage penetrates deep into the body, refreshing and cleansing in holistic treatments. And of course for weddings and social celebrations or conferencing and corporate affairs, you need look no further than L’ermitage for an unforgettable experience.

L’ermitage is a guest-focused village paying tribute to the French Huguenots who settled in this valley some 300 years ago. 

A sense of old-fashioned community abounds in this aptly named sanctuary offering weary city-dwellers the tranquillity and relaxed atmosphere of a select residential estate.

Here residents stroll the cobbled streets, meeting neighbours and friends for coffee or a chat without the rush of deadlines or the press of time.

And yet in the midst of this courteous and kindly lifestyle are superior modern amenities and the unparalleled lifestyle you would expect in this, the food and wine capital of South Africa.

Way back in 1688 some 200 French Huguenots fled persecution in their native land to find peace and freedom here in this sanctuary of the Cape. It took remarkable people to pioneer into what was then "darkest Africa" and their tenacity and work ethic were legendary.

They not only re-built their own lives for the better but they carved farmlands and rich pastures out of what had been simply a rocky wilderness. 

The Huguenot Tunnel linking the towns of Paarl and Worcester is a tribute to their industry, and Franschhoek itself and the Huguenot Monument are both famously significant tourist attractions.
