With thanks to Jo, his mother and staff for laying on such a fine venue for a book talk. Long live The Library in Franschhoek.

Jo, thank you so much - this has to be an annual event: The Franschhoek Champagne Festival is SUCH a blast! Wonderful organisation, restaurants - and the saviour - the bpool! Looking forward to the next trip.

Jo, after a hard day drinking Champagne at the festival and a super dinner at Le Quartier Francais it is great to come back to such a fantastic place. You are an awesome host and if you will have us we will most certainly be back.

It was wonderful to experience this unique addition to The Explorers Club. A truly exceptional creation, and loved every bit of it. Looking forward to many more visits!

What a wonderful place to stay. We are leaving here well rested and very relaxed. I have never stayed anywhere with such a well-stocked kitchen. Thank you.

Hi Jo, thanks for the lovely stay in this fantastic house. We all had the opportunity to meet up from Franskfurt, Madrid, Cairo and Maputo. We hope we will be back soon!

Jo, such a characterful house. You have a true eye for design but also know what makes a successful holiday home. Designing the living space upstairs with the terrace really takes advantage of the superb views. Also being able to lie in bed with the windows fully folded back makes each bedroom quite special.

What a fantastic way to celebrate Ivannn’s 50th! Lovely house, fabulous views and interiors leaving one inspired.

From a tree house to The Library, oh what a difference. We have had a truly wonderful stay. Margo and Madge just loved cooking in your kitchen - we will be back. Many thanks.

A truly unique “Library’ adored every moment! Thanks and we will be back from Bonnie Scotland.

A great place to stay and enjoy Franschhoek and the surrounding area. The Library is a bit special, certainly quirky and we enjoyed its light, space, position and the idiosynchronicies!
Ian & Sue Bolden

We thought we knew all there was to know that is great about Franschhoek... how wrong we were, what a find. We will be back!
Johnsons

Jo, Julia & the squirrels in the oak tree. Thank you for a fantastic place to stay. The Library lives up to the comfort and peacefulness of its name. See you again.

Many thanks for a wonderful stay - a beautiful home from home and a cosy, stylish retreat from the “challenging weather”! Have already recommended The Library to a friend who will be visiting in September.

Wonderful house - makes us want to stay! We will just have to return again soon.
