We spent the last night of a two week trip at La Fontaine & it provided a fitting end to a wonderful holiday. We had seen La Fontaine on a third party website, but booked with them directly as we had a few specific requests and we couldn't have been met with a better service and their rates were extremely competetive. We were travelling as two families and needed suites and baby-sitting facilities, of which both were provided with no fuss. The suites were garden rooms which provided quite a lot of privacy and were very well layed out so we had our own outside space as well as the communal pool. The babysitter "Genie" was wonderful with the kids and we felt very confident leaving them with her whilst we were out in town for dinner (a very short stroll away). Breakfast was very good, fruit, muesli & cereals, yoghurts, cold meats and cheeses as well as a cooked option. Kathie, the owner, was extremely helpful and hospitable and we will definitely stay there when in Franschhoek again - it worked so well for us.
