We stayed 4 nights with kids at The Stables cottage. Joan our host was so friendly and helpful, we definetely felt at home. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well suitable for a family with small children. The mountain views are definetely a hit, on our last day, there was a rainbow over the mountain which was stunning. It was... More

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

Our family group spent four nights at The Stables. It is not modern luxury but it is very comfortable,clean and private. It is also very good value. The outside space is not the greatest, although the views are spectacular. The outside furniture could do with an update. We missed Wi-Fi.

Rose Cottages features three options for accommodation and we chose The Cottage – a spacious, self-contained, well, cottage with self-catering facilities, a big bath and shower and great views from the verandah. It was also good value for money and the service was great. I'd definitely stay here again.

The Stable was an oasis for our family, with a private pool and beautiful setting with shockingly stunning mountain views rising up from the vineyard. A lovely home away from home for our 3-day stopover in Franschoek, and Joan was very charming and kind.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The discerning traveller will find self-catering accommodation at Franschoek Rose Cottages, set amongst the vines and mountains of Franschhoek, yet we are only 2.5 km from the centre of the village. Each cottage is tastefully furnished in the French-Provencal style with an open plan lounge/dining area and well equipped kitchen. Each has a fireplace for those cold winter evenings and fans for the hot summer days. After a day of sightseeing or wine-tasting, you return to the tranquil setting of your cottage where you can relax and enjoy the spectacular views, take a dip in your own private pool, have a barbeque or go out to enjoy the gourmet delights of the restaurants for which Franschhoek is famous. ... more   less
