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

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
