Brilliant, absolutely nothing wrong with this property, owners/staff welcoming, rooms, outside space, location, breakfast, all done to a very high standard. This was our last location in SA and it didn't disappoint, easy to walk into town safe quiet location, and just lovely.

We found the ideal place to stay right in the middle of Franchhoek and only two blocks away from the main shopping area. It was in a peaceful street and had all the facilites we wanted including a pool and communal areas where we could relax. We will definitely recommend Calais to our friends.

Set near the centre of Franschoek this guesthouse is in walking distance of all the town's amenities including the Wine Tram, the Huguenot Memorial and all the many restaurants. It is a good base for exploring.

The hosts are very attentive and helpful. Nothing seemed too much trouble with good advice on local wineries and tourist attractions. Breakfast was tasty,...

We were a bit confused as this is listed as Calais Guest House on Expedia but not on Trip Adviser. The owners previously had a guest house that was slightly further out of town but moved to a more central location. We could not fault anything about our stay here at all and absolutely loved everything about it. Where to...
