A B&B in a beautiful setting with an energy that makes you relax and take a deep breath and really enjoy the surroundings. Stunning views on vineyards and mountains. Lovely managers. Beautiful al fresco breakfast. What's not to love? Highly recommend for a few days of unwinding in lovely Franschhoek.

Our second visit to charming Chanteclair. What makes this place stand out from the many excellent places to stay in Franschhoek are 2 things - the fantastic hosts, Linda & Bruce & all their lovely staff and the incredible views - possibly the very best in the valley. The accommodation is charming rather than luxurious - it could be made... More

Excellent welcome on arrival. Beautiful room. Lovely log fire burning when we arrived back from eating out in the evening and a terrific night security guard to greet us on return. Breakfast was taken out on the terrace looking out over the vineyards............perfect.

A delightful place to stay on the edge of the lovely little town of Franschhoek. Hosts Linda and Bruce (and Jack the labrador) made us feel as if they were welcoming us into their own home. Quiet, peaceful grounds, compete with lake and swimming pool, and vineyard to wander in, all topped off with the most beautiful views. We would... More

While we loved the spot of the Auberge and the managers' hospitality, the value for money for the guest house was not where (in our minds) it would need to be. The guesthouse interior is beginning to feel outdated, our bed was not old and not that comfortable, and breakfast was fine yet not up to standard for the price... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Linda and Bruce made excellent hosts, and the night security man was very helpful. He had a log fire on the go for us just minutes before we returned from the restaurant. The breakfast was very good, taken outside on the verandah, overlooking the vineyards. The whole area is stunning, plenty of red... More

We had a superb room with a great view. Wonderful facilities, superb hosts and staff. Good breakfast. We couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended. Good for visiting vineyards and do dine at them in the evenings.

Chanteclair is set in a stunning location against a backdrop of vineyards & mountains. It is one of the most picturesque places I have ever stayed in the world and I found myself reaching for my camera everytime I walked around the property grounds, which include a small lake, swimming pool & sun lounger area, woods, vineyards and an orchard...

We spent the first 2 nights of our honeymoon here and it was beautiful. After 24 hours of travelling we were gagging for a massage when we arrived and Bruce had it arranged almost instantly. Lovely breakfast, views and cracking helpful hosts.

We stayed for just one night at the end of a big road trip around the Cape, garden route and Karoo and it was simply blissful. The biggest plus was the welcome from the managers, Linda and Bruce, who were just so warm and welcoming and from the ever friendly night security guard, John. It was a cool autumn evening... More
