We stopped off here for an hours wine tasting and it was well worth it. The estate is very small thus you get a completely different, and in our opinion, better experience than the big company estates. Extremely personal and friendly service, stunning wines and honest prices. Highly recommend.

Stayed in kastanje next to the river only for a night and wished we could have stayed here longer. Perfect little cottage for 2 couples in your stay in Franschhoek. The pool was a good place to cool down at with a glass of wine in hand.

We spent the weekend in one of the cottages and loved it! I must admit, we spent most of our time wine tasting and dining at the amazing farms Franschhoek has to offer, but la Chataigne was a peaceful haven after a busy day. A dip in the large pool at the end of a hot day was very welcome.... More

We stayed for 6 nights in Kastanje Cottage, unfortunately it was not what we expected. We had a porch/patio back and front neither of which caught any sunlight due to vines and/or trees so sitting out for breakfast or dinner was not possible, and why sunloungers if there is no sun? The braai was built into the back patio, it... More

We recently spent 11 wonderful days in Marron Cottage. From the moment we arrived until the time that we had to leave, we were made to feel welcome by everyone at La Chataigne. Our cottage was tranquility itself, situated as it was close to the banks of the Franschhoek River among pear trees and shaded by large oaks. The beds... More

If staying on a vineyard is what you are looking for then I can't think of a better place than La Chataigne. It's a little out of town so a car is a must. Also, no TV or WIFI means that 21st century comforts are not catered for. But that just means more time to soak up the atmosphere and... More

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
