Weather & Seasons
The Winelands are a year-round destination with a mild Mediterranean climate, somewhat like the South of France, which is what makes the area perfect for grape-growing. Summer in Franschhoek is the reverse of the Northern hemisphere. The best season visit is September to March when it is hot, sunny and dry. From April to August it cools down with some rain.
It's about 90 minutes from the centre of Cape Town or an hour from Cape Town airport.
