A group of us spent 2 nights at La Fontaine and we had a wonderful time. There were two young babies in our group and we were extremely lucky to be able to stay in Campbell House, which is next door to the main La Fontaine guest house. There are 3 rooms in this house and our group took all of them. We were very comfortable and we didn't need to worry about disturbing other guests if the babies cried. (It's actually quite difficult to find baby friendly guest houses, probably because they have to consider their other guests)
Shirley and Kathie were incredibly friendly and went to great lengths to ensure we had everything we needed. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and beautifully furnished. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was delicious, with the best home-made muesli I've ever tasted!
The guest house is a very short walk from the 'centre ' of Franschhoek, so everything is within walking distance.
A really great place to stay and we would definitely stay there again.
