The village abounds with galleries presenting works of art from a staggering number of artists. Some are easy to find, others are hidden and unexpected. This guided village art route tour will reveal the hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
There are more than 20 art galleries in our little town and a number of artists living amongst us whom we can visit to experience their talents in their studios. From artists in the village to potters in the townships outside of town, there is much to see and appreciate.
Optional Extra: As a last stop we visit the fabulous Pierneef Gallery (named after one of South Africa’s most famous artists) at a world-class vineyard and then enjoy a wine-tasting.
We start at one end of the village's Main Rd take a stroll down visiting the various galleries along the way, popping into side walks and alley ways to find the hidden gems.
We then drive to a few artists (provided they are available) and visit their studios or home galleries.
We end our tour at one of the local famous wine farms to view the gallery and if time allows, we can pop into the tasting room for a bit of wine-tasting (optional extra).
We meet at and return to the Franschhoek Adventure Centre which is at Shop 5, upstairs @ 62 Huguenot Rd, Franschhoek (right next to the Tourism Office).
