Where to Stay

From boutique hotels to self-catering cottages and Provençal-style villas, there is much great accommodation to choose from for your Festival weekend. We recommend that you book as soon as possible. You can find a list via the Franschhoek Wine Valley website.


Off-street and on-street parking is available within Franschhoek during the Festival.

Glorious Food on the Festival Lawn

Founding sponsor Porcupine Ridge will once again create a festive atmosphere on the Festival Lawn outside the Town Hall on the main road. They’ll be serving delicious pulled-pork sandwiches paired with their delicious, easy-drinking wines; and you will be able to lounge on their giant bean bags (and under umbrellas) as you watch festival participants go by.

Necessary food on the move at the Festival Hub

The new Festival Hub, situated just outside the Town Hall on the main road, will offer on-the-move food for those needing to grab quick-and-easy bites or coffee during breaks or between back-to-back sessions.

Coffee Stations

There are three conveniently located coffee stations at the Festival: one at the Festival Hub (see above), and two more at the Town Hall and at Hospice Hall.

Exclusive Books Pop-up Store

Buy books at the Exclusive Books pop-up store in the Town Hall. Book sales also take place at each venue where a session is held.


All good! We have generators and back-up power.


All the entrances to our venues are wheelchair friendly.

Health & Safety

The safety of our visitors, staff and participating authors and guests is, as always, our top priority. We are following all the necessary preventive measures to ensure that the Franschhoek Literary Festival is a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
