Imagine an all-inclusive winelands getaway, where your weekend has been meticulously planned for you from check in to check out! Franschhoek’s popular Mystery Weekends holds the promise of surprise, relaxation and pure indulgence.

Your all-encompassing weekend includes all that Franschhoek is known for – from luxurious accommodation to award-winning wines, gourmet cuisine and bespoke experiences.

Your experience starts with an exclusive (and unconventional) check in event planned for all guests. Mingle over a glass of wine before opening your special Mystery Weekend box, which contains all of the exciting details as to where you’ll be staying, where you’ll be dining and what you’ll be experiencing, including a fun and informal evening where you are welcomed to the valley in true Franschhoek fashion.

The Franschhoek Mystery Weekends are ideally suited to couples, seeking time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The allure of the weekend is that you don’t need to book a single thing as it is all taken care of for you.

Although most of your weekend is pre-planned there is ample time to enjoy a leisurely stroll through the village to browse the local market, art galleries, artisanal chocolate shops and bespoke boutique ateliers you’re bound to discover.

“It’s always been a fun filled weekend and the anticipation of not knowing your location until you draw your box adds to the excitement. You can never tire of what is on offer in Franschhoek. It’s excellent value for the entire weekend compared to the high season rates and we have met some wonderful new friends from past Mystery Weekends,” – a regular Mystery Weekend guest.
