Had a wonderful cellar tour and lunch at this small auberge in Franschhoek. Such a lovely place with fabulous views of the valley. Had a very informative tour and tasting given by Isaac. Our lunch was very tasty and beautifully presented.

We stayed in one of the lodges, and the view accross the vineyards was spectacular. The sun sets were the perfect backdrop to all of the wine tasting and relaxing. For lunch the only place to go is the restaurant which is not only good value but amazing quality. It is also a must to go on the wine tasting... More

We had a two night stay at La Petite Ferme as part of a longer winter holiday in SA. We know Franschoek well but this was our first time staying at this hotel, which is a 2-3 minute drive out of the town centre. Check-in was efficient and we were greeted cordially. We were told we could drive to in... More

Having our own boutique guest house in Fresnay Cape Town makes us quite demanding. We escaped for a romantic weekend and whilst we'd eaten there lots of times we had never stayed. We had a private cabin in the wooded area with its own private splash pool which was amazing, yes it was freezing but being British you soon get... More

We stayed in La Petite Ferme for a weekend in April and loved every minute of it. The Farm is a hidden gem not advertised on the booking but randomly found on a local website.Located in the valley it has a gorgeous view of grapes and hills and bears the old French charm flavour. We had a nice start of... More

My partner and I decided to stay at the La Petite Ferme after a friend of his recommended this B&B to us. With accommodation booked for a weekend, we got there on a Friday afternoon and went straight to our bedroom after being checked in. The room was large and seemed cosy, however had some problems. The TV only had... More

We stayed at the Manor House (n.7) and had a great time. We didn;t manage to try the restaurant - and we regret it - but we loved the sunset over the valley and we absolutely loved the winery tour. This farm is different from many of the other fantastic Franschhoek billionaire's-owned farm: does not lack elegance and comfort and... More

A very relaxed and comfortable stay. Our bungalow (Maison) was large, well equipped and nicely furnished - with a superbly comfortable large bed! It isn't absolute luxury but has everything one needs. One aspect owners of low slung sports cars should be aware of, the track to the bungalows is pretty rough and needs to be taken very slowly.

We stayed in the Bridal Suite which has an enormous bathroom although it has no door which is a shame. Even married coupled require a little privacy. The bed was really comfy and the room was huge. We had an amazing view of the valley and also from the patio outside. The rooms had good security but it was quite... More

The Deluxe Vineyard suite... just wow! A hideaway in the wonderful town of Franschhoek. We stayed here for a night and wished it was for longer. The food served here is just divine, both for lunch and breakfast. In the evening we took advantage of a charcuterie made by the hotel with a fantastic estate wine from it's very own... More
