When To Visit

No matter the season, Franschhoek dazzles with dining delights, award-winning wines, tranquility and a backdrop to boot.

Franschhoek experiences a Mediterranean sort of climate with hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. The area is temperate, with the hottest months in January and February and the coldest months in June and July.

If dry weather is what you’re after for your next Franschhoek holiday, plan to visit between December and March and avoid booking a trip from June to August. The spring and summer months more or less guarantee perfect weather for outdoor activities and al fresco dining under the Southern Cross.

If a glass of red wine next to a roaring fire sounds more like your idea of paradise, the winter months between May and September are generally much quieter in Franschhoek. The Cape has its own special charm in the wet, winter months – perfect for hot, hearty meals, big reds and gallery crawling.

Fly Fishing

Begin the day with your local, skilled guide collecting you early in the morning. 

The fish tend to be most active from 8 am until 12 pm. Gear up and let the local pro show you the tricks of the trade for casting your way to a prize trout. This is no ordinary day of fishing though, one of the best-kept secrets known as the ‘Cape Streams’ awaits exploring! 

Renowned as one of the top stream fisheries in the world for stalking wild trout, a series of pristinely managed rivers in the Du Toits Kloof Mountain range, a mere 25 minutes drive from 7 Koppies, provides the perfect backdrop for your day out. Cool, crystal waters and breath-taking views come part and parcel with your private experience. Changing flies and all equipment is handled by your guide and when the fish aren’t biting- the snacks and beverages are at least flowing.

The Berg River Dam is another hidden ‘outdoor’ gem with numerous trails to explore, leading to spectacular views over our valley.
