3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2015

Whilst we weren't expecting 5 star (it is rated 3 star) we were expecting a little more. Cottage run down and needs a bit of upkeeping. We were comfortable enough, but the noise from the main road was too much. When you book on a wine farm, one expects to have peace and quiet.

We stayed for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer! The cottages were well equipped and all had a terrace and garden. We loved the swimming pool, walking around the farm, the free wine tasting, and Joey the dog! Not forgetting the staff who were very helpful

This is a charming place just outside Franschhoek. The cottages are situated on a working wine farm. Accommodation is basic but good value for the price they charge. There is WiFi and they offer complimentary wine tasting for guests. It is a self catering facility but there is a lovely restaurant called ‘Cafe Bon Bon’ which is within easy walking... More

The cottages are stylishly decorated and furnished and very comfortable. Our host made us feel extremely welcome and could not do enough to help. Our stay included free wine tasting. We will definitely be returning.

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
