I can’t help but squeal when I see the large baboon sitting on the rooftop come Sunday morning. Much of Saturday afternoon was spend sitting on the upstairs balcony sipping sipping wine and heartily lauging about the week’s events. Had the baboon been eaves-dropping all this time above the Ivy Apartments,? We’ll never know…
Ivy Apartments in Franschhoek
The crisp winter air doesn’t keep us outside for a moment longer when the shadows lay upon us. The soothing sun has been a luxurious treat in the, usually, rainy Franschhoek valley during winter. The apartment is one of 9 self-catering luxury flats located right in the centre of Franschhoek, literally 20 meters from the main road. While a large building, the complex is discretely tucked around the corner from the Franschhoek chocolate shop and pharmacy.
The Ivy Apartments reached out to me a few months ago and kindly invited myself and friends to come and stay over for an evening. Only a mad man would say no to a night in Franschhoek! So off we trotted, down the road, for a lovely winter’s night away.
We invited our friends, Kevin and Pia, to join us for a low-key evening in the heart of the winelands. Here’s my 6 C review of the Ivy Apartments:
Comfortable Bed (Get a good night’s rest)
Conveniences (fridges, services, etc.)
Dare I say it…but the Ivy Apartments may very well have been my favourite accommodation location in Franschhoek. PHEW! That’s crazy because I have honestly stayed in some AMAZING locations. But the Ivy Apartments really just had that touch of something special that made it very special, from the style, location and feel; it’s aligned with what I find comfortable and homey.
Ranging from R1800 to R2500 per night, the apartments are great value for money – particularly when split between two couples (think R625 per person for accommodation RIGHT on Franschhoek main road). Bargain.
Thank you SO much to the Ivy Apartments for having us. I hope to see you again SOON!
