If Franschhoek is your destination, we’d love to have you as our guest at Mont d’Or.

Just meters away from the historic town centre, we are an easy walking distance from Franschhoek’s enviable variety of restaurants, museums, monuments, exclusive shops and art galleries – and the famous wine tram, of course.

As with fine food and world-class wines, so too fine art needs to be experienced to be appreciated. Visitors to Franschhoek can once again look forward to a weekend of artworks and exhibitions, as the 4th Annual Art Franschhoek opens its doors to the public over the weekend of 25 - 27 October 2019.

Over the years Franschhoek has established itself as one of the country’s premier art destinations thanks to its numerous art galleries and resident artists. Art enthusiasts can choose to leisurely browse through the galleries situated along the village’s main road, and within comfortable walking distance from each other. Alternatively, they could view the artworks on display at some of the wine farms, which include Grande Provence and La Motte. Garden and art tours at Leeu Estate add an extra touch to your cultural outing. Art Franschhoek celebrates these artists, and allows visitors to experience this unique part of Franschhoek.

A highlight of this year’s Art Franschhoek, as well as a first for the valley, will be an exhibition entitled ‘Masterpieces from Franschhoek Private Collections’, a unique once-off display of exquisite artworks on loan from private owners for this weekend. These include never-before-seen works by the likes of William Kentridge, Alexis Preller, Dumile Feni, Robert Hodgins, Maud Sumner, to name but a few. These rare gems will be on view to the public at Ebony/Curated’s Bordeaux House Gallery.
