Stayed in Oak Cottage. Great for a couple. Quiet, beautiful setting. Attentive staff, love the place, and the dogs. Perhaps could have done with fan in the lounge (37C). And a feather pillow? So close to Franschoek, which is really convenient. The cottage is well equipped, with everything you need. A home away from home, in every respect.

Our fourth visit to Bo La Motte. We stayed at Oak Cottage again (ideal for a couple), but on previous visits with another couple we also had Milkwood and Goose cottages. All nice. The farm is about 1 km outside of Franschhoek, but we regularly walk into town and feel it is safe; we also went for early morning runs... More

Great value for money with excellent guest service tucked away on a fantastic vineyard with amazing views. Second time round & this will always be our second home away from Sweden. It had everything to offer for our family of 5 with the City Centre in walking distance so very convenient in having that glass of wine over lunch time.... More

We stayed at the Orchard Cottage for two days. Bo La Motte farm is only a ten minute walk from the heart of Franschhoek and the Huguenoten Monument and museum. The Orchard Cottage is a lovely renovated cottage on the edge of the domain, situated between the vineyard and the orchard. The house has all the necessary facilities but has... More

Thanks for your review, we value all responses as its a great way to gain feedback on our farm and cottages. With regards to the WiFi in Orchard, we have recently installed a farm wide system for all cottages except Orchard which unfortunately fell out of the scope of this system being right at the bottom of the farm.

I am actually a bit reluctant to write this review, as this is such a hidden treasure, I wouldn't want it to become too well known! ;-) Stayed here for the second time now, in Goose cottage, after renting Goose and Milkwood last year with our family. Again we were welcomed as old friends, already the email- and phonecontact was... More

We found Bo La Motte via TripAdvisor. Usually we choose to stay in a hotel for our annual anniversary getaway to Franschhoek, but this year we were looking for something different... and did we find it! I cannot enthuse enough about the amazing Oak Cottage. It has everything you need for a romantic and very comfortable stay. In addition, it... More

We love Bo La Motte! We have stayed there twice and it was consistently good. I like it so much that I actually do not want to tell others about it because an increase in demand may mean that next time they are fully booked! We always book two cottages, and they are comfortably furnished, with electric blankets, romantic fireplaces... More

We spent a most enjoyable family reunion in three cottages (Milkwood, Goose & Orchard) over a long weekend. Quiet, relaxing and lots of open spaces for the kiddies to play, surrounded by vineyards and orchards. Well-furnished and cosy cottages with log fires, electric blankets etc., serviced daily. Lindi and Annetjie were very friendly and helpful with lots of tips and... More

We spend a couple of very relaxing days on the farm and loved everything from the warm welcome (including from the dogs) to the actually pretty large self-catering cottage set right in the midst of vineyards. With 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an open plan kitchen/living room, we had way more space than we needed. Furniture and decoration were tasteful,... More
