Upon entering reception we received a friendly welcome. Just a few minutes later we were following the directions to our "chalet". This turned out to be a small...

We were late and arrived at 6pm, it's a Guest Farm and not a Hotel so it's run completely differently. They had to locate the owners which was a trial in itself as there's no big reception and no big drama. As we waited I relaxed., at the security gate. Eventually the owner was located and we were allowed to...

We recently returned to La Petite Dauphine for our second visit, almost two years later. We were instantly at peace when we drove through the gates & looked at the beautiful scenery. It is truly a stunning place. Stefan greeted us warmly & was as friendly and helpful as ever. Last time we had room 5 which we loved, but...

We celebrated our wedding in La Petite Dauphine on the 6th January this year. The location, service and food were a dream come true.

We stayed in the Junior suite which has a good mountain view over the fruit trees. Secluded and private. The suite is well appointed and includes Wi-Fi connection.

Flushing toilets , cell phone conversations and noise of other...

Having stayed several times in Franshhoek, and having eaten previously at Cafe Bon Bon, we stayed here this year. We had a superb room and were very happy with our accommodation during our stay.

This place is around 2 miles outside of the main town and is totally luxurious! We were in Villa 9 which is one of the more remote villas but was less than 5 minutes walk to the main restaurant and reception. The greeting and check in was excellent!
