This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Rose Cottages. This time we actually stayed in Rose Cottage as my husband and I travelled by ourselves this time. It was lovely. Joan and her staff looked after us so well the time just flew in. We could only get three nights - wish it could have been more. Will... More

I stayed here with friends for 2 nights in August and I cannot fault a single thing about our stay. The location and view from the cottage was incredible. It was peaceful and relaxing. The beds were comfortable, the cottage itself was large and roomy. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Internet and phone reception was bad here......but honestly that... More

We spent 3 nights in this comfortable and well appointed cottage. It had everything we needed, the fixtures and fittings were very luxurious. The cottage was in a very peaceful location, with stunning views of the vines and mountains. It was very convenient for Franshhoek, only 30 minutes if you fancy a walk. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Lovely Rose Cottages are situated in a very quiet, convenient (wineries, shops, galleries and restaurants less than 5 minutes by car) and beautiful corner of Franschhoek at Verdun Farm. Booking is quick, easy. There are many good reasons to choose this comfortable accommodation and the simple 45-50 minute journey from airport makes this a perfect first or last stop on... More

We stayed two nights in The Cottage, which is in fact one discrete part of the main building. The views from the verandah over the vineyards to the mountains are stupendous. We struggled to tear ourselves away from the sun loungers. Good spacious accommodation, adequately furnished and equipped. Excellent value for money. An easy 4 minute drive from Franshoek. Would...

Our South-African/Finnish family stayed at The Stables. A beautiful scenery to the mountains, cottage located between the wines. Very peaceful, quiet and private but still only a stone throw away from Franschhoek centre, and the wineries. The cottage itself is beautiful, one open plan livingroom kitchen and two en-suite bedrooms (one with double and the other with two single beds).... More

We enjoyed 4 nights with friends in 'The Stables' towards the end of our holiday in SA. The cottage is private within a stunning setting amongst the vines below the surrounding mountains. Our en suite bedroom had a very comfortable bed although the decoration was a little tired. The open plan sitting room/kitchen is spacious although as a self-catering unit... More
