French Country Charm at Auberge Daniella

Words: Julie Velosa | Photography: Julie Velosa

If you are planning a stay in Franschhoek, you may consider a self-catering option. If luxury, personal touches and a spacious environment are important to you, then Auberge Daniella is the place to stay. Located at the bottom of Main Road, it is the ideal base from which to explore all that the town has to offer. The guesthouse consists of three private spaces differing in size. Each is decorated in an elegant, understated style, with all the necessary amenities. Personal touches like a suggested recipe card with fresh herbs placed in the kitchen, a scattering of rose petals with an inspirational quote left on the bed, and the pool basket with towels, sunscreen and a printed weather forecast, elevate the experience. It is these thoughtful touches that separate Auberge Daniella from others.

Take a dip in the pool, read a book under the shade of the tree-covered balcony, or simply indulge in an afternoon nap in your air-conditioned suite after a long day of exploring. In the morning, collect your breakfast basket from outside your door and enjoy fresh fruit, croissants from a local bakery with butter and jam, as well as yoghurt and muesli and the morning paper. Auberge Daniella is a real Franschhoek gem, whether you are spending a night or a week, it has everything you could possibly need and more.
