Nooks Pied-à-Terre
Franschhoek, Cape Winelands, South Africa


Nooks Pied-à-terre’s spacious open plan living area features an impressive double volume ceiling with exposed heavy wood beams and two mezzanine levels. Climb the spiral-staircase leading to the TV lounge and balconies, and enjoy the surrounding spectacular mountain views  -  indulge in that ‘sun-downer’ whilst watching the amazing sun-set.

The light and airy lounge offers a huge fireplace, comfortable over-sized leather chairs & sofa, with under-floor heating. Fold back the bank of glass doors and allow the lounge to flow onto the sun-drenched, Moroccan style private courtyard and swimming pool, planted with citrus trees & indigenous plants.


When it comes to dining, Nooks Pied-à-terre offers you a number of choices - enjoy lunch in the sunny Moroccan style courtyard, or take breakfast perched on bar stools at the large kitchen island, or for that romantic evening, choose the dining table set with candles and a roaring log fire in the background.


Relax by our sparkling crystal clear pool, listen to the peaceful sound of running water, whilst indulging in that well deserved glass of Champagne, and enjoy! For those that get a little overheated, cool down under the garden shower.

Sit in the peaceful front gardens and patio areas and feel the ambiance of this  beautiful village with its spectacular mountains, breath in the scent of the local flora & fauna, listen to the local bird song, and pick your own fresh herbs for dinner.


Nooks Pied-à-terre features two spacious, well appointed guest suites. Our master suite offers a king sized bed, air-conditioning / heating, with the room opening fully onto the sunny courtyard and pool, as well as having its own private front verandah. Our second guest suite features a comfortable queen sized bed, air-conditioning / heating, a wood burning fire, and en-suite with walk-in shower.

If you’re wondering….

Nooks Pied-à-terre is named after our wonderful tabby cat, Chinook, and like its name sake this home comes alive at night.  It is a truly magical evening entertainment house  -  with the right music playing, the garden and house lit up with beautiful modern lights, we believe, like us, you will fall in love with our special home.

So stock that fridge with wine, buy in some local produce, and get cooking! We hope you have a truly wonderful experience at Nooks Pied-à-terre and trust that you find this as much a ‘home from home’ as we do.
