The Whale Cottage Guest House Portfolio is set to open its fourth guest house in September.

The building which is to become Whale Cottage Franschhoek is undergoing renovations currently, and will open in September with seven guest rooms and an indulgent deluxe honeymoon suite. The property is set in a picturesque garden with its own brook, and is three blocks from Le Quartier Francais and the newly opened excellent restaurant called Reuben's.

Previously the home of well-known artist Errol Boyley, Whale Cottage Franschhoek will enable guests to enjoy the gastronomic excellence, wonderful wines and breathtaking scenery in the most friendly village atmosphere of Franschhoek.
