Riverside cottages are very well located to Franschhoek. This is on a farm with wine tasting, and fruit trees. The cottages have everything you need for self catering. To stay here for a week is very reasonable. Very well run and helpful staff.

About one mile (5 minutes) out of the town center but in the middle of peace and tranquility. Nestled into the foothills of the most beautiful valley on earth. Much like the Swiss Alps. We freely walked the farm/vineyards of this family farm led by their dog Joey. He loves his sticks. You will never have such a peaceful existence... More

We stayed at this lovely place for 2 nights. It was picturesque, romantic, low-key, lovely and the perfect place for my fiance to propose! Other notes: The staff is very pleasant. The complimentary wine and olive tastings are a nice touch. Was wonderful to walk around the grounds, especially the plum and pear farm. Highly recommended for couples; seems to... More

We stayed at the cottages at La Bourgogne for five nights. We needed to work and use our cottage, Oak Leaf, as a base for business and exploring. Oak Leaf is a lovely, double-roomed cottage (two bathrooms, too). It is cosy, but spacious. For working, the internet connection was in quite good order. We enjoyed peace and quiet at Oak... More

This the second time we have stayed at these delightful cottages. The warm welcome by management and beautifully prepared rooms are a great drawcard. The rooms are well equipped with fine linen on the beds and were warm & cosy upon our arrival. Under-floor heating in the bathrooms and additional heaters broke the cold. The kitchenettes are sufficiently stocked with... More

We arrived late from Cape Town on a Friday evening before the Bastille Festival on the weekend. Inge had waited kindly for over an hour to let us in and show us to our cottage. We were in Oak Leaf cottage which is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom self-catering cottage with large kitchenette with all the necessary facilities and utensils.... More

This is a fabulous spot to unwind and relax. Beautifully located, surrounded by mountains and vineyards. The farm wine, olive oil and olives are delicious. Lots of stunning wine farms nearby. We stayed in Oakleaf, a two-bedroom en-suite bathroom cottage in winter, was very cosy and warm with the fire place, under-floor heating in bathrooms and fan heater. Highly recommended... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The cottage is very simple with concrete floors, which are too cold for winter time. Our en-suite bathroom was very basic with a single basin and no space to put your toiletries. And not sufficient warm water for all 4 of us to shower.There was no door in between the bathroom and bedroom, so... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights but a week would be better to fully appreciate the peace and quiet and to see more of the area. There are 4 cottages, that appear to be identical, situated along the Breede River bank. Our cottage was spacious, offering two bedrooms, one en-suite, plus a loft area with 4 beds and... More
