Franschhoek Uncorked: A night at Val d'Or

The main building entrance, which contains the reception and breakfast room
The conference centre. All these buildings sit in very lovely, extensive, well cared for gardens
Our room in the warm light of a spring day
A little old fashioned, needing a bit of updating, but very comfortable, with air conditioning and under floor heating
The manor house entrance lounge.  Our room was off to the right
The manor house has a kitchen should you need to self cater
We had our own terrace area, but no time to enjoy it! This is the open area at the back of the manor house
Our bathroom. Apparently they are all being updated. The shower was good, the bath rather narrow, but it was clean and well supplied
The view of the garden, looking toward the mountains from our terrace
The meat and cheese plate on our table for breakfast. We didn’t touch it.
The breakfast room
The cereal bar with coffee on tap
Fresh fruit, juice, coffee and muesli for John
Low carb egg and bacon for Lynne. Very, very fresh eggs beautifully cooked, good smoked bacon and great fried mushrooms
