Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

A restored turn-of-the-(previous)-century building, Le Ballon Rouge is decorated with a bright Victorian flourish, each room receiving individual attention. Rooms range from comfortable twins to large and luxurious loft suites.

Le Ballon Rouge Guesthouse is near centre of Franschhoek – a delightful village in the Cape Winelands and home to more fine restaurants than people. Food, wine and the beautiful countryside sit high up on the menu and Le Ballon is a great base from which to explore the Franschhoek Winelands area, the mountains, the nature reserves and neighbouring valleys.

All rooms at Le Ballon Rouge Guesthouse en suite bathrooms, ceiling fans, tea and coffee, and either mountain or garden views; the superior rooms have separate showers, heated towel rails and air conditioning. But if you can spare the cash, you have to go for the massive master suite: featuring an antique-deco bathroom with underfloor heating, air conditioning, flat-screen TV, lounge, kitchenette, and a rooftop deck with an open-air hot tub and a magnificent view of the mountains.

Facilities

Eight en suite rooms including two suites, three superior rooms and five standard rooms; ceiling fans in every room; tea/coffee stations; garden or mountain view; swimming pool; breakfast terrace; dining room with lunches and dinners for large groups or on request; garden and veranda.

Activities

With more than 40 farms in the Franschhoek Valley, a tasting tour of the local wine farms is an absolute must - your host will be happy to assist with choosing the farms to visit and there are organised tours if you don't wish to make use of the spittoon. Other must-do activities in Franschhoek include dining out at any number of award-winning restaurants in the village and a thorough exploration of its boutique shops, art galleries, street cafés and monuments. Further afield you can visit nature reserves, hike, explore the mountains, visit wildlife sanctuaries and generally live the life in the Cape Winelands.
