Your accommodation for the 2017 Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival
On the 2nd and 3rd of December this year, celebrities, champagne aficionados, foodies and fashionistas alike will come together to celebrate the magic of bubbles in style. Yes, we’re talking about the social calendar event of the year – the Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival.
What is the festival all about?
The Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival takes place on the lawns in front of the iconic Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek and as the name suggests, it involves a lot of bubbly!
Yes, this festival is all about sipping on champagne and Méthode Cap Classique (the South African version of champagne) and giving in to your glamorous side. Let your inner runway model come out as you show off your stylish outfit in black and white with a dash of summer (that’s this year’s theme). This is your chance to parade ever so elegantly around the gourmet food stands, sampling the conveniently-sized bites of deliciousness before making your way to receive the 'Best Dressed' award on stage.
If lavish parties, free-flowing bubbly, gourmet food, top boutiques and picturesque mountain views sound like your kind of thing, then you should definitely try to get your hands on tickets for the Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival. As always, festival tickets will be limited – and so will accommodation in Franschhoek – so you’d better hurry up and book fast.
Mont d’Or: The place to stay for the Cap Classique and Champagne Festival
Anyone who has ever been to the Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival will know that an entire day of sipping on delicious bubbly, indulging in gourmet food, and mingling in the summer sun will leave you feeling happy, tired, sleepy, and slightly giggly.
Now, imagine reaching this peak of bubbly bliss, and then walking about 750 meters to go cool off in the sparkling blue water of the Mont d’Or swimming pool. Doesn’t that sound like a great way to cool off after a long day of drinking champagne in the sun? You could relax in the pool and dry off on the loungers under the vines, knowing that tonight you will sleep in luxury and tomorrow you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast (probably a late one) before starting off day two of sipping bubbles in style.
