Burgundy Bourgogne Cottages
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We had four wonderful nights in Rose Cottage, luxuriating in the beautifully appointed interior, the immaculate garden featuring white Iceberg roses and spectacular view over the lake to the mountains beyond. The driveways through the farm are lined with olive trees, from which they produce their own olive oil, leading you to your discretely located accommodation, yet it's just only five minutes drive from downtown Franschhoek. Each property has its own pool with loungers [although more outdoor furniture would have been welcome] and there is a 'mirador' up the track beyond the vines for a sweeping view of the farm and valley - just beware of the baboons! Expensive, but worth it just to sweep through the huge entrance gates!

Room Tip: Rose Cottage has the best views and open aspect.

I spend 5 nights in this cottages long time ago, but I always remember this beautiful place. We stay in one cottage with my parents and we had a beautiful views into the lake.

The cottages are well decorated, clean and very comfortable.

I can't wait to come back!

I booked and paid for 1 week of accommodation, I cancelled months before and they gave me a credit note, and would not honour it! Even though it was on their letterhead, issued by them...
There response was 'sue us'

We were very lucky to spend a week in Lavender Cottage which has the most amazing setting looking out across the private pool to the lake and vineyards beyond. The cottage ( one of only 3 very secluded cottages and 1 Manor House) is beautifully appointed....even a magimix in the kitchen cupboard! This cottage allows pure relaxation in exceptional luxury. Fully serviced by a great team every day. There was certainly no desire to leave this amazing setting.

It is fantastic value per couple per cottage, but you cannot justify doubling the rate for two extra people per night. A fair increase in the daily rate for an additional couple should be no more than R400-R500 otherwise you would be better off taking a seperate cottage per couple. If this price policy was implemented this venue would score a perfect 10.

We left knowing we would definitely be back sometime. Just superb!

Room Tip: Best views from Lavender and Rose cottage. Manor House superb for families. All have own pools.

Where do I start? PERFECT! You instantly feel at home in the cottage, and what a home!
It is very quiet, beds are ultra comfortable, the view is amazing. The price is very reasonable for this luxurious experience. I could go on and on, we've only spent one night but i will definitely come back for a whole week!!

We stayed at the Rose Cottage for two nights from the 3rd January 2012 and checked out on the 5th January 2012. It is a Self Catering Cottage but really it is more like having your own 1 bedroom Villa on the most amazing Olive and Wine Farm in Franschhoek.
The cottage is very well appointed and discerning. All the rooms are spacious and every comfort is provided. The views from every angle are breathtaking and the gardens immaculate. Each cottage has its own private pool, which is a luxury in itself. This accomodation is suitable for couples and families alike and there is plenty to do. The service level is very good and the website definitely does not do it justice. I would recommend this for discerning travellers who love living "The Good Life".

Couldn't believe this wonderful place had never been reviewed and really want others to know about it as it really is fabulous. We celebrated our honeymoon there and it was wonderfully romantic.
Firstly Burgundy Bourgougne (BB) is a working wine estate and it has 2 ( think there might now be a third) 5 star self catering cottages nestled in amongst the vines and overlooking the picturesque farm dam. Lovely mountain views. The cottages are built in traditional Cape Vernacular style and are full of charm and atmosphere. They have two beautiful en-suite bedrooms with very comfy beds. The entire cottage is very tastefully decorated and are more than spacious enough for two couples. There is a kitchen that is fully equipped, although we didn't really make much use of it. Each cottage has its own large pool.
If you are visiting the Cape Winelands and Franschhoek and don't really want to stay in a hotel, you can't get better than Burgundy Bourgogne. Hoping to go back again this year.
