La Chataigne is a joy. Tranquil, private, beautifully equipped, a perfect venue for complete relaxation. Bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms all out together with thought and care. Everything spotlessly clean and superbly presented. Outside space for morning and evening. A pool for the hotter days, and they can be hot in Franschoek, delightful fruit orchards and vines, with the Franschoek river... More

We stayed in Chestnut Cottage for 4 nights. Cottage is modern , comfortable & well equipped. Covered verandas on both sides of cottage are great places to relax with a glass of wine & enjoy the stream or sunsets over the mountains. Franschoek is easy to drive to & enjoyed the Saturday market. Would highly recommend these cottages .

It is beautifully situated next to the river and vineyards with the front porch overlooking the mountains and vineyards and the back porch on the river with the porch area. The furnishings inside the cottage are... More

We came on a bicycle trip so it was a perfect location 7 km outside Franschoek !! Which meant we could cycle all over the valley and explore lovely Franschoek - We stayed in Chestnut Cottage the first night and loved it !! Nice and private - simple but fresh and stylish decor ! Only one sun lounger though ?... More

We can highly recommend this delightful, well located and tastefully furnished cottage, offering the perfect base from which to explore Franschhoek and surrounding areas recently. It is set in countryside, towards the mountains, on a river bank, and shaded by trees. The atmosphere is tranquil, with an emphasis on comfort that will feed your soul.
