It was such an amazingly great adventure and stay! Perfect!! Great service and perfect location. The views of the mountains are awesome! I would really recommend the country house for anyone that wants a place with a perfect view and some peace and quiet. Its also has great food with a coffee and cake at four o clock.

We stayed here after having landed in Cape Town after the 11 hour flight from Heathrow. We had reserved rooms for three nights, to rest after our journey. The house is situated in the Western Cape winelands, surrounded by mountains and within easy reach of Cape Town by car. The rooms are opulent, with top quality linen and very comfy beds. Breakfast was taken on the terrace overlooking the pool. Service is first class, and the manager was most helpful, reserving dinner tables and offering advice on places to visit, and alternative accommodation when our two day safari, booked for later in our holiday, was unexpectedly cancelled. Franschhoek is known as the culinary capital of the Western Cape, and we certainly enjoyed our three days there.

Room Tip: I would recommend the rooms overlooking the pool.

We met Marc and Tess, who made us very welcome at Cabriere Manor House. The rooms look amazing and the view is to die for. We feel we have made new fiends in Franschhoek. We know we will come back next year.

We spent two wonderful nights during our honeymoon at La Carbiere Country House.
We booked the Africa room wich was facing the pool and overlooking the vineyards of Franschoek.
Beautifully decorated room with a patio with direct access to the pool.
Very well located only 2minutes drive to the Main Street.
Absolutely charming place, calm , serene with a beautiful garden.
The owners and the staff are very friendly and made restaurants reservations and recommended vineyard tours.
We would definitely return...Thank you for the bottle of champagne on arrival....!

We stayed here in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very good location, walking distance of the town, where there are many excellent restaurants to choose from. Our room was beautifully furnished, tastefully decorated, and very clean. The views from the property are amazing. The gardens and pool area are stunning with plenty of loungers and towels. Breakfast was very good with a nice selection of fruit, cheeses,etc. and the cooked breakfast was cooked to order and very tasty. Afternoon tea is served on the veranda and the cakes made by Tess were delicious.

The new owners, Tess and Marc, are delightful and full of suggestions of where to go and what to see. The property is beautifully maintained and a lot of care and attention is paid to the comfort of the guests. The staff and manageress were very friendly and attentive. We had a marvellous time in Franschoek and especially in La Cabriere. We highly recommend this guesthouse and wish the owners good luck in their new venture. It is one of the best we have ever stayed in and we travel extensively. We hope to be back soon!

Let me start by saying that Franschoek is one of my favourite places anywhere on the planet - if you are considering a trip there and you enjoy great wine, food and fantastic scenery, at excellent prices, you are in for a treat.

I have stayed at a couple of the establishments in Franschoek, all have been excellent and La Cabriere did not disappoint. I booked our accomodation online through booking.com, and I thought the price we paid offered very good value for money.

La Cabrierre is located just the other side of the Franschoek monument and is within walking distance of town. On arrival at the property, the lady who greeted us offered to make dinner reservations for us, an offer which we accepted.

Arriving at our pool view room, we were greeted with a complimentary small bottle of sparkling wine as well as tea and cake, which was a nice gesture. We were very happy with our room - everything appeared fresh and new, the bathroom was excellent and clean. The uninterrupted views from the balcony were stunning. Although we didn't use the pool much, the pool area is very pleasant with a lovely seating area with fresh towels and pool loungers. The bed was very comfortable with fresh, clean linen. Nothing to complain about here.

We were happy with the breakfast provided in the pleasant dining area, a small selection of fruit, cheese and meats with eggs, bacon etc. expertly made to order.

We encountered some minor irritations which if addressed would enhance the experience of staying at La Cabriere:

We noticed in the morning that there were a lot of flies flying around the breakfast area, probably due to it being the windy season in Cape Town. Although the food was covered, they were an annoyance during breakfast. I am sure this could be easily addressed.

The main entrance door to the accommodation featured a self close mechanism which causes the door to close with a loud bang - a soft close would minimise annoyance to the guests.

We felt that the thick down duvets on the beds were somewhat inappropriate during the middle of summer - this was easily countered by turning down the temperature on the air conditioning at night, although this seemed somewhat wasteful.

We found the complimentary wireless reception in our room very hit and miss, although it was excellent in the dining area just a few steps away. I'm sure a stronger router or relocation of the existing router would solve this issue - the internet worked well when there was a connection.

Overall we enjoyed our 4 night stay at La Cabrierre enough to extend it to 5 nights, and would recommend this guest house as an excellent choice of place to stay in the stunning Franschoek valley.

We spent one night here whilst holidaying in cape town but could have stayed forever. The room was beautiful and the view from our patio was breathtaking. The owner walks around making sure everything is OK. We were greeted by Charmaine, the manageress who was extremely friendly and helpful. She booked a table for dinner that night for us and gave us info on the wine tram. breakfast was served the next morning overlooking the mountains, what a way to start the day. The table was laden with all sorts of wonderful food as well as a cooked breakfast. The little touches like silver napkin rings and linen napkins make this a very special place to stay. Although our bedroom was directly opposite the kitchen we never heard any noise at all which is a real bonus after all the ,lovely wine the previous day. All I can say is if you are looking for accommodation in franschoek then this is the place to be. I'm sure there are other places that are excellent but for us this is definitely somewhere to go. It's well worth paying a bit extra. To all the staff and the owners, keep up the good work and we hope all the care and passion you put into this lovely place pays off.
