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!

Very well situated and not far from centre of town you can walk into town. We loved the dogs it gave us that home away from home feeling. There is the most beautiful wine farms around you can visit during your stay.

We had a 3 night stay at La Galiniere. The cottage was very comfortable and very well equipped. The furnishings were also very comfortable. The heated bathroom tiles were a treat. The little cottage was situated in a way that made out stay very private. We will definitely return there.

Lovely little cottage (ours was right next to the office, which didn't affect us as it was the weekend - but may have felt a little less private if we had been there during the week). Bottle of their own wine left for us, a very nice touch. Braai brilliant, used it each night. There are 3 large dogs on... More

The cottage was exactly as described and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is conveniently located within an easy walk of the restaurants and shops and although on the main road is quite quiet. A complimentary bottle of red wine from the vineyard was a nice touch.

Lovely atmosphere around the property. The owners left us a bottle of their own wine in each of the cottages we rented. Good value for money compared to the more central establishments but you can still comfortably walk to and from Franschhoek. Would definitely stay here again.

We spent a very relaxed weekend in Franschhoek, particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and shady verandah for sundowners.Would recommend particularly for self-catering, proximity to the town centre and for its privacy.

We have a number of complaints regarding our recent stay at this property. Although the main house does have wifi, this is not on offer to visitors unless as an emergency. There is no safe provided and the owners accept no responsibility for anything stolen - understandable, but surely a safe would at least make guests feel able to leave... More

Dear Wendy, I'm sorry you felt the need to post your concerns on TripAdvisor after I had already responded to the issues you raised by email. As indicated in my email, our property does not offer internet access on our website or in any other literature (printed or online). I therefore feel that it is unfair to criticise us for... More
