I have found heaven!
Franschhoek was the last stop before heading back to reality. What trip to SA would be complete without it !
We booked at La Petite Dauphine. The room was immaculate with sophisticated touches. I loved the pillow-topped bed. And in general the whole feeling of the estate.
My partner and I are quite picky when it comes to coffee so the Nespresso machine in our suite was such a relief after the horrid sachet coffees in our previous hotel rooms.
We had lunch at the Café. It was so good we went back for dinner too!
Thank you to the owners and staff at La Petite Dauphine for making our stay so special!
