Who are we?

de Alchemist is an 1861 homestead in the historic centre of Franschhoek. It opened as a guest house a decade ago, is owner managed and has 7 en – suite bedrooms with private entrances. There is a country breakfast is served – in summer on the terrace overlooking the pool. Many of the restaurants and shops for which Franschhoek is famous, are within ease walking distance from the guest house. One could also stroll to a wine farm for some wine, and on the way back stop at the fromagerie for cheese and bread to enjoy at Auberge Bligny – the kitchen and garden are always at the disposal of guests. Jack (a descendant from the French Huguenots who first settled in the valley) and Frieda invite you to use their charming guest house as a base from which to explore the Winelands. For example: Stellenbosch and Paarl are 20 minutes away, and Somerset West (the home of Vergelegen wines) and Robertson (renowned for high quality and reasonably priced wines) are 45 minutes from the guest house.
