Take a leisurely drive on a Saturday morning from Cape Town to Franschhoek and you could add in some wine-tasting along the way…..
Go to the most picturesque restaurant (in Franschhoek that’s not too difficult to find, everything’s so pretty, peaceful and tranquil) – Dienne Donne is a great option – for lunch.
Situated quite high up on the mountain, the views are absolutely breathtaking.  In Winter you can sit inside and enjoy the fireplace or in Summer you can sit outside and even order a picnic lunch. 
ProteaThen, if you’re too tired to drive back, you can check in at the Le Franschhoek Hotel and Spa for the night.  Book one of their divine treatments and drive back to Cape Town after breakfast the next morning. (you might want to stay at Le Franschhoek for a week it’s so gorgeous!)
