The wine farm is in a wonderful location, i would recommened Leopard Suite to everyone as a wonderful room and quiet location. On arrival and very late in the evening we were met at the suite, unfortunatly due to a mix up the downstairs was instead reserved although i insisted on the upstairs suite due to its reviews, the aircon...

We arrived at the chalets at around 9pm in the evening.We stayed at the Marco Polo Lodge with breathtaking scenery with wild animals and a view of the Franschhoek mountains. The piece de resistance of our trip was the outstanding service provided by the lodge assistants. The staff are extremely polite and helpful and will cater to "most" requests. We... More

A big thanks to the team at Chamonix Marco Polo Lodge, Franschhoek! We had an absolutely amazing 3 nights at the lodge. Everything was superb - from the suite, to the food, to the wine, to the service and last but certainly not least, the VIEWS and SURROUNDINGS! The lodge is perfectly situated with the vineyards and wild animals surrounding... More

We arrived at our beautiful little chalet that's nestled amongst the pines above the main Lodge (we stayed in the Hadida suite) where it was both quiet and peaceful. The scene was breathtaking, with wildlife that was literally right outside our windows; springbok, eland, zebra and even ostriches. Our 2 nights there were perfect and the staff at the main... More

On our annual family vacation we decided to book for two nights in Franshoek so that we could do the local wine farms and enjoy the scenery. We decided to have a break in hotel stay and go self-catering for two of the nights at Chamonix cottages as we know the wine estate and thought we would be in for... More

Fabulous 3 night stay in the Marco Polo Lodge. We were on the executive suite on the left wing... amazing view on franschoek valley. Good breakfast served by two very nice butlers (Anderson and his colleague). 5 min drive from Franschoek centre. We will come back!

I would not recommend the self catering cottages - we were very disappointed / compared to the many places we have stayed in the Eastern & Western Cape (especially in Franschhoek). There was damp creeping up the walls and behind the cupboards, dirty stained couches which I put blankets over, so we could sit on them - we watched TV... More

The last night of our three weeks in South Africa was decidedly the worst - memorable only for the absence of what we'd enjoyed everywhere else. No tea, no milk, no hairdryer, no top sheet, no security, no internet (so couldn't do advance seat bookings for flight home) and over-priced at R700 for a couple. The cottage was very 1950s... More

Chamonix was recommended to us in Cape Town. We did not know what to expect and were simply amazed. Arriving late, we received a key at the main gate and had to find our cottage somewhere up the mountain driving through the wine fields. Everything was dark but the cottage was great: Enormous room, typical decoration with big leather sofas,... More
