Explorers Club is a lovely self-catering home with eclectic Africana décor built on the spot where the original railway ticket office stood in the centre of Franschhoek village.

This stunning home can accommodate up to 6 adults and 4 children, and contains 4 en-suite bedrooms, all leading off the central area, with a twin room tucked ingeniously into the eaves of the original building.

The master bedroom contains a king-size bed facing a large wood-burning open fireplace, with double doors opening out onto a private wooden-pole covered verandah, the pool and garden. A ceiling fan above the king-size bed will keep you cool, while, underfloor heating will ease you through the cooler winter months. Attached is a walk-through dressing room, also ideal for a baby or toddler in a camp cot, leading to a large bathroom with bath, shower, toilet and double basins.

The second bedroom has a queen-size bed, ceiling fan and a shower en suite with a toilet and washbasin. The third bunk bedroom can be used for children or small adults. It also has an en-suite bathroom with a bath, washbasin and toilet.

Up some narrow stairs, set in the sky-lit eaves of the old cottage is the fourth bedroom. The twin beds, which can be made up into a king-size, lie beneath a skylight; leave the skylight open and watch the skies at night as you lie in bed. With an open-plan bathroom concept, there is a bath and a washbasin in the room.

The soul of Explorers Club lies in the large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, giving the conviviality of a camp kitchen, gorging area and place to relax, but with all the creature comforts a true holiday requires. The living area is divided into 2 sofa areas: one of which opens out onto the patio, the other remains in the cosy interior, adjacent to an open fireplace, and beneath a wall-mounted TV with air-conditioning, DStv and Wi-Fi. The house has a fully equipped kitchen and an indoor braai.
