The room is clean, beds are very comfortable and there is a small sitting room outside the rooms to relax. the food is served in the dining... More

The house is set in a relaxing setting and has great staff and security. We were totally relaxed there and being only 5 minutes from Franschhoek itself is the ideal solution. The house itself is a beautifully kept example of the colonial past and transports you back there. Quiet and beautiful, we will be going back.

We required accommodation for a wedding taking place near Franschhoek. Booking and provision of information was efficient and friendly. The country house was charming and very comfortable. Our room was in the main house and there was a pleasant homely atmosphere, while it was very quiet and private. The view from the room was lovely and the service and food... More

Lovely little farmhouse in a beautiful setting. Service was very warm and hospitable, and the room was well sized and furnished to a high standard (we were in one of the upstairs rooms). Breakfast was lovely although a little mean (greater portion size may have been good). Be careful you don’t miss the turning on the way into town. In... More

Basse Provence completely exceeded our expectations. We stayed in Jacob suite in the cottage next to the manor house, which was cozy and romantic. The room was massive and had a free standing bath, and large shower. We had use of a stunning, sparking swimming pool just outside our room, and we can't wait to go back!!! 5 star rating!... More

Arrived and our booking was missing. But was quickly given a different room. Good points: rooms were large, beautiful location, nice breakfast Not so good points: bathrooms had a distinct cheesy smell I have a feeling they just needed better airing, towels were not replaced (even those on the floor) Also the hotel is not in the centre of town...

Good day thank you for taking your time to review Basse Provence. The roof thatch has recently been repaired with some new thatch. This does give off a grassy smell which some people love and some people don't. Franschhoek offers private taxi's which is convenient but can become expensive. It is advisable to be travelling this area with a car... More

Myself and family booked out the cottage and half the rooms for a family event for 5 nights. The location is very convenient and scenic, in between wine farms, minutes from town which is easy if you have a vehicle but probably not walking distance. Beautiful mountain and vineyard views.

We stayed here for just two nights in December, in the little cottage, which is set away from the main house Pros: - cottage is well-appointed, with beautiful and comfortable furniture - the two bedrooms and bathrooms are well-sized, so two couples would be very comfortable, though they may feel a bit claustrophobic in the living area. There was more... More
