No. 17 Le Quartier Français, Franschhoek, South Africa
With blooming rose and jasmine gardens and gorgeous Winelands scenery, this 22-room Relais & Châteaux is a romantic base for exploring dozens of South African wineries, many known for Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The hotel can arrange for several nontraditional wine-related activities, including a “grapes and art” tour, “history, grapes, and charcuterie” class, and a custom wine-blending class at Môreson, its family vineyard.
