On our winter holidays.......
Time for our winter break and as last year we return to South Africa where we can find the nearest existence to France as possible with great food, fine wine and wonderful scenary as well as friendly people.
We are starting in Franschhoek staying in the aptly named Maison Chablis. Franschhoek , we are grateful to the 277 French, known as Huguenots who landed in the Cape of good Hope in 1685 and were given land by the Dutch colonial government creating this gorgeous French Corner.
Our chambre D'hote Maison Chablis
The main street is lined with boutique's and many fine restaurant's, a number of which are feel obliged to try!
