We spent 6 lovely nights at this awesome family run establishment. A perfect place to lay back relax and savor their exquisite selection of wines. A lovely pool is available for those hot Franschoek afternoons to cool down. There is a beautiful river that runs through the property and our son had fun searching and fishing for crabs.

We have stayed twice previously, with friends, but this time just the two of us in Chestnut cottage. As always, La Chatiagne is very relaxing, afternoons spent by the pool and evenings braaiing. Lots of sleep to be had! Highly recommended spot.

Lovely place to stay. We stayed 3 nights to attend a wedding locally in Franschoek. This was a lovely place to chill out, hang by the pool or grab a siesta in between the wineries and picnics! The cottage was 2 double ensuite bedrooms with a fully stocked kitchenette, a sitting area with table and sofas and there were 2... More

Arrived in beautiful Franschoek and checked into La Chataigne cottage: lovely light and fresh accommodation. And of course the wines were supurb The swimming pool was most inviting with its stunning views. Would have enjoyed spending more time! Will include in our next trip. William and Dale Ford

Excellent. This accommodation has fulfilled all our expectations. We have enjoyed the six days happy. The location of the house close the Franschoek river, surrounded by bushes, flowers and vineyards, is a beautiful place for holidays.

Little gem just outside of Franschoek. Accommodation is well put together. I also need to mention that the owner was kind enough to do a wine tasting with us after hours. Great wine that is create by a passionate owner! Definitely worth a tasting (and purchase). Little that you can fault this exceptionally good value for money accommodation.

This will be my very first "review" to TripAdvisor, I feel compelled to share this magic location but at the same time a tad terrified that by doing so I may not get a booking as it would become too popular! I found La Chataigne (Wine Estate and river side cottages) by accident about 2 months ago and have already... More

This is the second time we have stayed at these cottages , which are beautiful and quietly situated on a small stream. They are nicely designed and kitted out for our visit. Even in bad weather the cottages are great with fireplaces inside and out. Also close to town with all their lovely restaurants and wineries.

What a beautiful and charming place! We enjoyed every moment of our stay at La Chataigne. Although it was a cold and rainy weekend, there was enough firewood and wine to keep us warm and cosy (and hot water bottles!). Beautiful bird life as well all along the river. Thank you for the personal touch, we can highly recommend La... More

We had the pleasure of stayin at La Chataigne for a long weekend recently... even though the weather was cold & miserable, our stay was anything but. The fire roared and the cottage was cosy! Close to lots of great wine farms and close enough to Franschhoek village to shop for those last minute items you forgot to pack... Only... More
