Stopped for a weekend in the squirrel suite. The suite is a stand alone cottage furnished with a fantastic huge bed and a luxurious bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and double stand alone shower. Bathroom also had a chaise long and an ipod docking station and mood lighting. Outside on the patio is a set of chairs and a fridge... More

I would highly recommend Dieu Donne to anyone traveling to Franschhoek!! We unfortunately could only stay for 1 night but will definitely go back!!!! Marie was extremely nice and it was such an amazing surprise because we were upgraded to the Squirrel Suite, and had champagne, chocolates and the most delicious homemade olives waiting for us at our room!!

The B&B is tucked away in the Franschhoek valley and has beautiful surroundings. Gerrit and his parents run the B&B, and he was very helpful with everything from winery recommendations prior to our arrival, local restaurant choices. He basically helped us plan our entire day the morning we left, including calling ahead to a boutique winery that we would have... More

Such was our pleasure at staying at this idyllic accommodation with Gerrit and his mother, Marie and their delightful staff that 2014 will see us returning for a further 6 days. Franschhoek, the sophisticated village within 30 minutes walking distance of the 5 star Dieu Donne Guest Farm. Keeps you fit and content in the beautiful surroundings and yet dining... More

We had the fortune of staying in the Squirrel suite which was totally amazing. Gerrit, the owner could not do enough to make our stay an absolute pleasure. He gave us restaurants to go to ( Allora ) and where to have an amazing sundowner ( Roca ). These should not be missed on your visit. We will definitely be... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful setting. The view over the valley was just spectaculor. We stayed in Pine room and were very pleased with our choice. Gerritt made us feel welcome and we looked forward to his chat over our delicious breakfast. The guest farm is slightly out off the beaten track, but no distance at all... More

This must be what paradise looks like. Basic, all you need. Straight forward and no nonsense with the friendly Afrikaans hosts Gerrit and Marie. Sit on the terrace in front of your cottage, hear the birds, smell the flowers in the midst of the winery and olive trees and just feel the beauty of this place. Quietly tucked away overlooking...

Dieu Donne Guest Farm is well located and as a family offering is both personal and friendly. The breakfast is hearty and the owner a real character. The rooms are charming and setting is sure to please anyone looking for an escape from the city.

We spent a night at Dieu Donne Guest Farm and enjoyed the clean, cosy room and the verandah with stunning views of the mountains. Breakfast was delicious, and we were made very welcome by the staff. There were lovely small touches such as olives in the fridge.
