How to Find Us

We can be found very easily.  We are situated on the western edge of the town of Franschhoek, 80 kilometeres from Cape Town International Airport.


From Cape Town International Airport

Exit the airport towards the N2 motorway and turn left to head towards Somerset West.  Drive for 26km until you come to junction 43, which is shown as 'Somerset West'. 


Exit the motorway and turn left and head for Stellenbosch on the R44 for 18kms.  Drive along the dual carriageway until you come to Stellenbosch where you will start picking up signs for Franschhoek.  At a set of traffic lights you will automatically join the R301.  Head on until you come to a set of traffic lights at a junction called Bird Street.  Cross this junction and immediately over an incline turn right for Franschhoek. 


Follow this road for 16kms passing through Pneil village and Boschendal winery on your right.  At the junction, turn right and after 14kms you will come to Franschhoek.   As you enter Franschhoek, you will see on your left a small white painted retail centre called 'Place Vendome'.  Turn next left up De Wet Street.  Cross two junctions and the property will be on your left with a sign showing ‘Sorbonne’.
