7 Koppies offers a range of wonderful experiences to enjoy during your stay.
Whether you enjoy time spent outdoors, meandering through our surrounding wild, exploring the koppies, varied fynbos and incredible birdlife found on our working farm, or perhaps prefer gastronomic delights and wine-tastings at some of the country’s most prestigious wine farms – we’re on hand to ensure that your stay in Franschhoek is one you’ll never forget.
Along with historical wine farms, breath-taking scenery, culinary delights and award-winning wines, Franschhoek offers incredible natural wonders that are best explored on foot on its many hiking trails and fynbos paths.
We have 50 hectares of pristine fynbos. Fynbos is the name given to the naturally occurring vegetation that is only found in the coastal and mountainous areas of the western cape and eastern cape. It is one of the world’s six floral kingdoms and has the distinctive feature of having the highest biodiversity of them all.
Within the immediate vicinity of our farmhouse, spanning roughly 2 acres, lies our man-made garden that includes an orchard and a flourishing vegetable patch. South Africa’s wonderful climate, coupled with our abundant water supply, has allowed us to cultivatea broad selection of fruits and vegetables, enriching the culinary experiences we provide our guests…
The gardens of 7 Koppies are home to a thriving population of bees, which play a crucial role in the ecosystem. These industrious insects not only pollinate the flowers, but also produce a sweet and flavourful fynbos honey. While the honey is certainly a delicious byproduct of their work, the bees themselves are fascinating creatures with complex social structures and vital roles in the natural world.
No Wifi, just a great connection. Combine the beauty of the outdoors with the excitement of reeling in an impressive catch.
