New owners are very friendly+helpful. Beautiful gardens and pool area, rooms were decorated tastefully, they assisted with reservations for dinner promptly. Would stay again
Perfect location in town with easy access to shops and restaurants. Wonderful garden setting for breakfast and lounging by pool; great view of mountains in the back ground. Excellent breakfast.
It was perfect situated just off the main road but still very quiet. We enjoyed the spacious garden.
I only missed a little bit bigger table to put "stuff" on.
Central location. Cost/value for money. Breakfast.
Room 1 - Bedroom was small, but with a very large bathroom.
The property overall was larger and more airy than I expected. The staff were always there in the back ground, but left you alone. Loved the pool areas. When I return I will definitely book here!
No bad experiences!
Really friendly staff, great location and lovely atmosphere.
The location is ideal, near all the main shops but still very quiet. Large room with a most comfortable bed.
Thoughtful kind atmosphere set by inspiring owners who have created a tranquil relaxing gem in perfect location From the welcome to the home made breakfasts soft colours and attractive antiques you couldn't be in better hands. A soulful creation.

Nothing not to like
We liked the attention to detail and the charming surroundings in the beautiful gardens, with lots of comfortable seating areas. Beds very comfortable. It is very close to the centre of the town and its facilities, but without being noisy. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.
This is an older property in the process of renovation by its new owners, and has no air conditioning as yet, although the rooms are airy and quite shaded and so did not get over hot.
Yves and everyone at De Alchemist made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to help us make our short stay really special. The rooms are lovely and very nicely furnished. The gardens are also beautiful - a very tranquil spot just moments from the main road.
The gardens are an absolute delight even by Franschhoek's standards, an absolute oasis of calm.
This place was newly renovated in a very aesthetic Way - good location! Highest recommendation.
Great staff,excellent breakfast,very nice layout.As Capetonians it is now our preferred Franschoek B&B.
Absolutely brilliant location, just a few minutes from the Main Street with restaurants etc. Fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. Also there are two swimming pools and excellentgrounds to relax in. The owner went out of his way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay.
Design and interior of the guesthouse Garden and pools Excellent quiet location near the town's restaurants and bars
Garden was excellent. Comfortable seating. 2 pools. Very helpful staff. Very good breakfast. Rooms very clean.
Room small ( room1 ) hanging rail for clothes but no shelves/drawer for anything else. Had to keep things in case.
Good picturesque location in the center of Franschhoek with the view on the surrounding mountains. Very friendly owner and delocious breakfast. B&B was made in old Victorian style inside the rooms
Yves is the most warm and welcoming host. He single-handedly refurbished this beautifully situated guesthouse in the center of Franschhoek. The views are outstanding, the breakfast is delicious and the two pools offer far more than just a welcome refreshment.
We booked 4 rooms for one night at this gem which was perfectly located for us to make the most of our short stay. Being in the heart of town we were able to walk to the wine tram for a day of wine tasting and walk across the road for a fine-dining dinner. The guesthouse is a beautiful oasis from the bustle of the town centre with friendly staff. Planning the next visit already.
Rooms; breakfast; staff; decor; garden and pool.
Wonderful quiet place with in a busy village. Ooh that breakfast...And if you habe ans question: Ask Yves! The wonderful chief
To leave this oasis...
Close to everything, owner and staff extremely helpful and are working hard to make it a pleasant place to stay.
Perhaps more than just an egg for warm breakfast.
