Akademie Boutique Hotel
5 Akademie St., , Western Cape, 7690, South Africa
With eight individually designed suites hidden on a leafy street in the town of Franschhoek, this peaceful and modern 19th-century Cape Dutch house is one of the area's best-kept secrets. From the outside, the building looks like simple white house with green shutters, but inside lies a peaceful, modern-meets-French-Provençal-style oasis. The quaint courtyard has a pool (and three of the suites have private pools), sunbeds, and a long dining table shaded by a tent of vines. The rooms are beautifully decorated with distinctive items that are both new and old. The hotel does an excellent job at making you feel at home with friendly staff and added treats like pre- and post-dinner drinks and live entertainment (a resident pianist plays in the evenings during high season).
