Bastille Day in Franschhoek…

A belated Happy Bastille Day mes amis! Where better to celebrate this historical French moment than in Franschhoek, a must- visit village about 75 kms (50 minutes) from Cape Town. Founded in 1688, it’s one of the oldest towns in the Republic & a fave destination of ours. This weekend we headed there in a friends new Porsche Carrera 4S… tres fabulous, tres fast & so the journey, in that speedmobile, was tres shorter. It’s a car to covet, I won’t lie.

A chilly wind was about….

Parked on the pass…

Swing a left for a great coffee at Deluxe…

Lateral Paul’s hair’s on fire…

A glass of vino & bowl of excellent soup was had at Dutch East….

Take a drive to Franchhoek …there are many boutique hotels & guest houses offering winter specials so take advantage. www.franschhoek.org.za A bientot!

  Until next time,
