This working farm is friendly and quite specialised. The service is great, good breakfast, with lovely villas. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage. Spacious and well equipped. the villas/cottages share two pools, so although it appears you have a private pool when you look out of your window, you don't. Fine if you're happy with your neighbour's.... More

Our lodge was beautiful and spacious. The setting in the vineyard and fruit orchard with the mountain views is spectacular. The owners are very friendly and the staff - in particular Stephen - could not have been more helpful. The breakfast at the café Bon Bon was delicious. Great location. Highly recommend this place.

I can't speak highly enough of La Petite Dauphine. The property is stunning and the views over the mountains exceeded anything I could have dreamed of. The lodges themselves are very big and spacious and finished to a very high quality - enormous bathrooms with lovely products offered. There is private parking right outside the lodge and it is close... More

I cannot say anything negative about this place. It was stunning. The gardens and the scenery beautiful. We love Cafe Bon Bon anyway after previous visits, but to be able to have breakfast there every day was a real pleasure. Dinner in the evening is outstanding and the dining room decor is very special, with beautiful paintings which are for... More

A magical place. Loved the Nespresso machine in the loom and the great L'Occitane products in the room. The dinner was amazing with the local Cab red wine and the cherry on the cake was the Italian piano man. Hope we can return some day.

Me and my wife stayed at this property on our honeymoon a couple months ago for four nights. It was about a four minute drive from the center of Franschhoek so was very convenient. The other vineyards and restaurants were mostly all within a ten or fifteen minute drive from this farm. It was overall lovely with its own vineyards,... More

As you drive through the gates at La Petite Dauphine the view is absolutely stunning. The interior of the cottages are beautiful with spectecular mountain views. The staff were lovely and very attentive. We eat at Cafe Bon Bon which was fantastic and the best lemon meringue pie I have ever tasted. Thank you so much for a wonder stay... More

This is a lovely nice quite place within the wineyards. The lodges are well styled and have a lot of space. The lodges are clean, have wifi and an alarm system. Airco for summertime, fireplace for wintertime. Some have a private pool and others a pool to share. The lodges have private parking spaces and you can watch the squirrels... More

We spent three nights in Franschhoek and selected La Petite Dauphine, based on recommendations of a colleague in Geneva. The setting couldn't have been more spectacular -- the service beyond description. We loved everything about it, including the breakfasts on the terrace, the grounds and jacaranda trees -- as well as the location. Just out of town, five minutes away... More
