We had our wedding at Rickety Bridge and booked all the accommodation at Basse Provence for guests - family and friends. Having stayed there before we know (and experienced again) the luxurious rooms and phenomenal staff! We loved every second of our stay and would not have changed a thing.

Fantastic, really friendly and helpful staff. I must complement them on the extra effort. The owner even came to assist when we had lost our keys. That shows you a place that goes the extra mile. Thnks

Basse Provence is a great place to stay. It feels luxurious, but is not expensive. It's also comfortable and clean, and how nice to sleep under a thatched roof! Staff very friendly and helpful, and good breakfast too!

Our room was in the manor house, which is a traditionally decorated, spacious building, with two rooms upstairs and one downstairs. The staff was very welcoming, and helped us get our luggage up the narrow stairs and get situated in a large, comfortable room. The grounds were beautiful,... More

Charming location, wonderful service, a "Must " on your visit to the Cape. The whole experience was so relaxing. Well done Rickety Bridge for the warm welcome and charming service during our stay. The town is only 5mins away, and driving is no problem.
