Where to stay Franschoek or Stellenbosch

I trying to deceide on what wine region to stay in on my trip to SA.

I can't drive and will have to rely on public transport. As the train, and various back packer buses go to Stellenbosch I had intended on staying there and then touring the various regions. (On foot, by bicycle or organised tour). However a friend of mine has highly recommended Franschoek to me, she has not stayed in Stellenbosch. I've also read the the wine farms around Franschoek are quite close to the village and therefore more accessable by foot or bicycle.

Would you be able to give me your opinions of the two areas. If Franschoek proves to be the better base I will try and organise some sort of transfer from Stellenbosch or Capetown.

Thanks in advance.
