You could be in Austria or Switzerland when driving into the town of Franschhoek through the pass coming from Villiersdorp. You just cannot take it all in and the mountain side is wonderful to see with all the wildflowers.

We were looking forward to going through this pass but felt quite deflated when we realised the elements were against us and the rain set in. Huge drifts of low cloud hid the spectacular views from us and it was heavy going! What was disconcerting...More

The views are fabulous and it's worth the time to go through and see the mountains. In town, there are cute shops and restaurants, so taking this journey can be a nice day trip. In the end, you can land at one of the wineries...More
