Spent two nights here as part of a 3 week trip in SA and our room was the most stunning of anywhere we stayed.

Basse Provence is a sister establishment to the adjacent Rickety Bridge winery. It lies just back from the main road a few minutes from the centre of Franschhoek and provides relaxed and comfortable accommodation. Basse Provence provides good breakfasts and there are, of course, a huge range of interesting places to eat and drink in the near vicinity. We had... More

Stayed here for two nights. Very pleasant and charming accommodation. We did have a loft room with some well place headknocking beams, but to some extent they add to the charms. Certainly the rooms were well kept, well appointed and clean and comfortable, with some views of the farm. It is but a short and pleasant walk to the rickety... More

Old Cape Dutch style manor house. Friendly reception, good breakfast. Great coffee. Quiet establishment. Room was spacious but low door to toilet was a challenge. Safe in room. DSTV selection good. Value for money.

A tradional winery house this was a delightful overnight stay. A thatched property on a vineyard with traditional furnishing. The clawfoot bath was so positioned under the skylight that you could lie back and watch the stars. Good facilities and great breakfast.

We arrived in Franschoek with snow on the mountains on a cold and wet evening. We were delighted with the friendly reception and a warm glass of sherry on arrival. It got even better when we got to our room. It was warm and inviting. The room, bed and bathroom were huge. We were most comfortable. The communal lounge was... More

We received a "gift in a box" and decided to use it at Rickety Bridge in Franscchoek, but since they were fully booked for the weekend we had available, we were booked into their sister farm, Bass Provence. What a delightful experience it was. The gift included an exclusive dinner at Rickety Bridge with wine pairings when the restaurant is... More

A bit of a haphazard arrangement with no in situ staff to greet you, help you with your luggage, etc. as a result, you feel as though this is a bit of a 'boarding house' establishment (though i confess i have never stayed in a boarding house). Everyone goes home at around 4pm which effectively leaves you, the guests, as... More

We were a group of friends staying the night before a wedding and had a whole wing allocated to us for the night. The rooms are beautiful as are the old buildings. Staff are very helpful and breakfast was good although we did have to wait for a while before it arrived after placing our order. I would definitely return.
