The cottage near the swimming pool has character and is quite comfortable. It has a private terrace and a view at pool and garden. Onfortunately one can hear the main road quite well, when sitting outside, but at night there is no problem. La Galiniere has no reception, and there is not always staff available to answer questions or to... More

We booked all 3 cottages for my son's wedding on 29 November. All 3 cottages were very comfortable and clean and Rensha was very kind and accommodating. I can recommend La Galiniere Guest Cottages which are also very good value for money.

This is a self-catering cottage set in a small vineyard close to Franschhoek. Its an easy walk to town, maybe twenty to thirty minutes, depending on your destination. Keep an eye out for the sign if you are driving, as its not prominent. Two rooms, quiet and with a kitchen for those planning on cooking. Bring your own wifi!

We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing 3 day stay at La Galiniere. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The cottage was very well equipped and most importantly beds were comfy. The cottage was serviced daily which was great. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Easy access to the town and various wine farms and restaurants... More

We had a lovely stay at the Merlot cottage in La Galliniere. It is a very comfortable cottage with all the necessities next to a small vinyard. There is a beautiful swimming pool on the premises. The only concern is that it is very close to the road on the one side and next to the railroad on the other... More

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We do however feel the internet page of the Guest Cottage is misleading as this was not what we expected when we arrived. There is also little communication from the staff while we were there.

Thanks for your review Martin. Please do get in contact and let me know why you felt the website was misleading. Regarding seeing the staff, we are a self-catering establishment and many of our guests actually prefer the privacy that they get staying with us. More

The stay was absolutely lovely. Quiet, peaceful& private. Just what we needed. It was beautiful & cozy. Not too far from home. The perfect weekend break. Alan and his family make you feel welcomed as well as the 3 friendliest German shepherds who kept my kids company on this break.

We loved our stay at La Galiniere! Nice spacious cottage and clean. Wendy and Allan were great. We did have a cleaning lady that was absolutely fantastic, very friendly accommodating! Will go back :) The German Shepherds were very friendly and it was nice having them around.

we enjoyed our stay very much! Only tip I could give, is perhaps have some Blits/ fire lighters for the inside fire place? It is a bit difficult to get it going with only matches :) Also maybe have some explanation of how the geyser works? we had only cold water on Saturday, until I realised that we had to... More

La Galiniere was the perfect spot for my partner and I to stay at whilst attending a friends wedding recently. The room was so nice and cosy, staff very friendly and it's set amongst the beautiful vineyard. The dogs make it that much more friendly too!
