The owner, Jos Balk, has loved Franschhoek since his first visit to South Africa in 2008. He bought the A la Montagne guesthouse from Gordon and Belinda Fraser who were running it as a 6 bedroom en-suite guesthouse.
Renovations took place in November 2017 and the guesthouse is now ultra-modern and will be renamed “theLAB Lifestyle” in Franschhoek.

Nienke and Jos are passionate about innovation, style and service, and promise an amazing stay at theLAB Lifestyle Franschhoek. The rooms are clean cut and modern, with all of the latest home automation features that created just for you.

The communal area is spacious and comfortable, offering a fireplace for chilly nights. The private pool area boasts a large wooden sundeck with comfortable lounger chairs with a sparkling pool to cool off in on hot summer days. The property has 12 parking bays available on site.

The guest house is situated on Nerina Street just before ascending the Franschhoek pass and thus the mountain views are astounding. The main street is just 5 blocks from the guesthouse and so the leisurely amble through the towns amazing attractions are only moments away.
