Le logement

The Map Room’s highlight is the upper terrace, which wraps its arms around the sociable kitchen and lounge, the perfect place to drink in mountain views along with a glass of wine or two. The kitchen is fully equipped, open plan to the living room and dining room….Our guests love The Map Room.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I spend some time with guests on check in and will send guests plenty of information of where to book restaurants and make the most of the local area when they are staying, and meet local characters.

Le quartier

Recently described as one of South Africa’s most beautiful spots with a picture-postcard village, 45 minutes from Cape Town. If you are going to choose one place as your base, Franschhoek should be it.

Franschhoek is quirky and charming, renowned for its towering mountains, vineyards and being the 'Gastronomic Capital of South Africa'. It is an historic village being settled by the French Huguenots in 1688 and has retained its authentic character and sense of place. It is a one of a kind.

The Map Room is situated on the last remaining dirt-track on the edge of the village, yet only 5 mins walk from the main buzz of the high street.


Most guests staying will arrive by their own car or rental car. It is very easy to drive around on your own and the roads and signs are very good. There is limited public transport to and around Franschhoek.

We now have a Tuk-Tuk service in the village and the Wine Tram is a good way of exploring the vineyards.

The Map room is a really handy base for exploring Franschhoek. The accommodation was spacious and funky. We loved the 1st floor balcony and had dinner out there on our last night. Fabulous!

Very spacious flat with all the amenities we needed. Easy access to the town and great views from the patio. Nicely decorated and comfortable. The fresh flowers were a nice touch.

Our stay at the spacious Map Room was superb, with juice, tea and coffee waiting for us on arrival. Everything was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was very well equipped, and there were plentiful logs for the fire or barbeque. Joe and Melise responded promptly and courteously to our questions and the comprehensive information and recommendations they emailed to us before our departure was especially useful, supplemented by even more waiting at the house. But what I REALLY appreciated were the maps (old and new) of South Africa on the walls – well worth spending time poring over! The location is ideal – quiet, yet only two or three minutes walk from the main street with its shops, restaurants and nearby supermarket. There’s a particularly good coffee shop just before reaching the other shops. The Saturday market is worth a visit, with scrummy things to eat in addition to lovely things to take home. Finally, I loved the vases of fresh flowers. I’m now so enchanted by proteas that I brought some home with me to a cold UK, where they’re now reminding me of warm sun-laden days. Thank you!

My wife and I traveled to Franschhoek for the weekend and had a fantastic time. Jo was very quick to respond to all SMS / emails, and kept us updated. Mrs. S. was wonderful - very helpful and prompt with coordination. The house itself is beautifully designed and decorated. Lots of thoughtful touches and very chic. Highly recommended.

Great apartment within 5 mins walk of the centre of town. The upstairs kitchen / lounge was a great space and the balcony had great views of the mountains. Very thoroughly fitted out.

The Map Room is the perfect accommodation for a Franschhoek visit! We were warmly greeted by Jo upon arrival and were really pleased with the house. It's charming, spacious and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Loved that we could walk up to the main street! We had a few requests and Jo responded immediately. We would definitely stay here again.

Jo has been in Franschhoek since 2002 and was raised a few kilometres away over the mountains. The years in between were spent in the UK, Australia, France, Croatia and New York fuelling his desires for adventure, finishing off with a solo sailing trip down the Irrawaddy River, in Burma, and on through the Andaman Sea. Jo moved down to Franschhoek, settling in arguably the most scenically beautiful wine valley in the world. This is one of eight properties under the ‘Explorers Club’ umbrella.
