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

I would actually like to keep La Chataigne a secret and keep it all to myself but that wouldn't be fair on Richard and La Chataigne so I am going to have to tell you that Chestnut Cottage where we spent two wonderful nights last week is an absolute delight. It is actually the second time that we have stayed... More

We spent two nights at La Chataigne and it was just wonderful! The cottage is stocked with wine (definetely a must to try!) The owners were so helpful, they organised a cot for our little man and were always available if we needed help. This is a perfect base for the exploration of the Franschhoek valley. We definetely come back!

Our last four nights of our Wine buying trip to South Africa were spent at La Chataigne cottages. Our main reason for being here was to taste this years new vintages as we stock their wines here in the UK. As always the welcome here is fabulous the wine is delicious and the cottages are off the beaten track so... More

"Our Farm"...that is how our children describe La Chataigne. We have just spent our 5th holiday there...and already booked our next stay. It is peaceful and quiet...the perfect spot to recharge your batteries, but also ideally located as a base from which to explore the Winelands. Cottages are fitted with all amenities...down to wine and homemade lemonade in the fridge.... More

We spent a weekend in the Kastanje cottage in Le Chataigne, and wow, what an absolutely beautiful place. The Franschoek river is only a few metres from the cottage with beautiful trees and the mountain setting the seen for a perfect view as you sit on the very private little stoep. The cottage was beautifully decorated, had everything that you... More

My fiance and I spent 5 days in Franschoek/Stellenbosch for wining and dining. La Chataigne is perhaps not the biggest wine farm, but the wines they produce is absolutly World Class. Suzann who guided us through their palette of wines was very knowledgeable and inspirational when she offered us to try their wines. The wine farm is absolutely worth a... More

A lovely little farm. The wine was beautiful especially the Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely touch with the label signed by the owner and we were lucky enough to get a personal one. The setting was idyllic set just outside of the main part of Franchshoek amongst the mountains and the hills. Go and try it for yourself!!

We stayed in the Marron cottage on La Chataigne and would recommend it to other guests any day. The cottage is well kitted out and one can see that real attention to detail has been given to everything (e.g. lovely soft bed linen, quality kitchen appliances, really clean and fresh). Actually "fresh" sums up this quaint little cottage which has... More
