Handpicked for you...

Nestled in the Franschhoek valley lies No 10, a luxurious yet welcoming family home. This gorgeous home is owned and has been decorated by a renowned international interior designer, who’s been featured numerous times in Andrew Martin’s iconic annual.

The owners, a jet-setting couple, were drawn to the house for its location, a 4-minute amble to the village (what a coup!) but far enough to be surrounded by rolling countryside and farmland. The sounds of birds and rustling leaves sunshine welcome’s you to every new day; so make a cup of tea in the country kitchen, fry up an English breakfast on the Larousse gas stove and make yourself comfortable in one of the two dining rooms.

When the weather is balmy, marvel at the mountains and vineyards, splash in the pool, light up the barbeque and say hello to the neighbouring farm’s friendly sheep. When chilly, snuggle indoors around one of the four fireplaces, have a little strum on the piano, lounge in the comfortable study or play raucous board games in the lounge.

No.10 is ideal for family reunions, large groups of friends who are looking for a charming country retreat or particular trips such as literary, culinary or golf tours.
Due to the airiness of the home, the four en-suite bedrooms allow for enough privacy and respite when needed.

This is very much a family home, it may have Lionel Smit’s dotted around and could have been rented out to well-known celebrities in the past, but it has the feel of a home that is meant to be enjoyed – the more the merrier.


What we love:

• The eclectic mix of antiques, modern and classic decor
• The pristine, all-white bedroom
• Bathing with views over the vineyard – what a treat!
• The beautifully tended gardens invite one to sleep off a large, Franschhoek lunch (with a tad too much of the good wine!) on sunny afternoons.

What you need to know:

• The short stroll to the Village allows one to indulge as above
• The full-time house manager can cook up a hearty breakfast for you
• The master bedroom has another bedroom attached, ideal for parents with infants and small children

    The house was very luxurious and comfortable with beautiful linens and the best duvets and pillows, over-scaled sofas in fabulous fabrics, multiple giant TV’s for family movie watching and very well appointed bathrooms. The views over the fields and mountain are from the maser bedroom and day room are incredibly relaxing. Lucky looked after us extremely well and nothing was too much trouble and left each day with the fires in each room well stocked and the house in perfect order. It is a beautiful house and we had a wonderful stay

    I can’t honestly think of anything which could improve No.10 – it was beautiful, comfortable, Lucky took excellent care of us and being able to amble into the village for lunch and amble (even more slowly!) home for a nap was SUCH a treat.

  Beautiful village with a French feel and excellent dining
