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

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...

The food here is very good, but dinner is only served on Fridays - lunch daily. My husband & I stayed Friday and Saturday and enjoyed it very much. Friday was a lovely evening with a live group playing in the garden in front of the restaurant. However, as my husband is disabled, the facilities where not really ideal for... More

We came here for lunch after a friend recommended it and we were not disappointed. The food is some of the best we have eaten so far in SA, fair prices and the view - wow! It is a huge restaurant with lots of different seating areas. Thankfully my request for a Veranda table with a view down the valley... More

Very nice food and wine in an idyllic location. We had lunch on the 4th of March 2015; the four of us had different dishes and puddings and all of them were full of quality tasty food. I went for the 'curried deboned chicken thigh' followed by the 'babana tart tatin' and it was delicious. Very good value for money... More

Friday night dinner and music on the lawn, a fabulous room with an unbelievable view and private pool, breakfast was great and staff wonderful....what's not to like! Spent 3 nights while cycling around the vineyards and especially loved their Bamboo Rock, a wonderful unwooded chardonnay in their cozy bar. Wifi (free) spotty in our room, but sitting on the steps... More

This place is in a great spot with stunning views. On a Friday night they have a good jazz band that plays when the sun retreats. It is highly regarded, we booked a month ahead and got the last table. Good food and service.

The views are spectacular from the Manor House suites and the restaurant. The rooms are immaculate, their staff engaging and the food sublime. It all comes at a price, of course. The summer concerts on the lawn outside the restaurant are a real treat. I recommend their Rose and Shiraz - yum!
