Franschhoek Village Art Route Tour

The village abounds with galleries presenting works of art from a staggering number of artists. Some are easy to find, others are hidden and unexpected. This guided village art route tour will reveal the hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
There are more than 20 art galleries in our little town and a number of artists living among us whom we can visit to see them in their studios.

Enjoy the estate’s Winelands Tea in the restaurant, on the stoep or in the picturesque garden.
The offerings include sausage rolls, savoury tarts, choux pastries, macaroons, soet-koekies and tea cake with tea or Coffee. Available Tuesday to Sunday from 3pm to 4.30pm at R200 per person. An experience not to be missed.
We start at one end of the village's Main Rd take a stroll down visiting the various galleries along the way, popping into side walks and alley ways to find the hidden gems.
