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

Spent a night in room 7. Very large room with fire places, lounge, nice bathroom and beautiful terrace. Excellent service, very good wines. We had a couple of glasses of house wines in front of the fire place before going to bed, felt like home !

We stayed here for 2 nights after a recommendation from friends. Other than the excellent view I really can not see what the fuss about. We arrived a bit earlier than check in time which didn't go down well with the lady at reception! There was no smile or welcome, just basically your an hour and a half early. We... More

We chose to spend two nights here to celebrate my 70th birthday. The accommodation was just great, the views from the room with its private plunge pool and two sun loungers, looked out over the vineyards. The room was fully equipped with everything one could expect in a five star establishment. Breakfast a great selection of breads, fruit, cereals and... More

Wow what a beautiful relaxed spot! The room was very stylishly decorated and very very clean. And then the views from our Vista Room was amazing and everything was very private and allowed you to just relax. The view from the breakfast room was just as spectacular. A bit sad that we only had time to stay for one night... More

This was the third time my wife and I have stayed in Franschoek and the third time we have stayed at La Petite Ferme. The setting is fantastic: vineyards, trees and mountains as far as the eye can see make for a truly beautiful vista, especially when the sun goes down. But behind the rustic charm is modern accommodation that... More

You want peace? You want quiet? You want some time out? The Pear Tree cottage at La Petite Ferme is what you need. At the end of a winding, switchback track, surrounded by vines, the cottage will provide a lot of privacy and a little bit of luxury. We stayed in early March and it matched, if not exceeded, our...
