About Villa Franca

Villa Franca is a unique lodge located in the heart of Avondale, Harare, a bustling residential suburb only a few kilometres from Zimbabwe's capital's City Centre and in the vicinity of a large number of NGO’s, small businesses and embassies, within walking distance of Avondale Shopping Centre. And yet with the feeling that you are away from it all, in your own oasis of calm, surrounded by a lush garden and the safe, tree lined neighbourhood, ideal for walks or short runs for those who like to get out and about.

  • Accomodation

    The lodge itself is a charming and elegantly restored colonial house with four bedrooms, two inside the house with King & Queen size beds, en-suite bath & shower, and two semi-detached modern rooms with two ¾ size beds, en-suite shower, and their own balcony overlooking the garden. We also have two self catering cottages; both with Queen size beds, en-suite shower, lounge and kitchen, and are usually for longer stays. Just recently we have added a new wing with five more en suite rooms, separate from the main house and more spacious than the rooms on the main house. In total, we have eleven rooms on the premises for you to choose from.

  • Facilities

    All rooms are fully equipped with flat screen TV’s, satellite TV, Wi-Fi Broadband, tea-making facilities, mini fridges, extra blankets, fans and heaters.

    We have our own borehole water supply that has been tested and is safe to drink, secure parking facilities and a security guard at night.

    Continental breakfasts are served along with warm breakfasts upon request.
