On arrival you cannot help but appreciate how stunning this villas are. The property is set in a French style and you feel as if you're in a Tuscan location far away. it is also tranquil and relaxing.

Stayed over for a year end function. Absolute heaven with awesome views and setting. We enjoyed a braai menu for dinner on the Friday and my expectations were exceeded. Very friendly and willing staff. Beautiful French village feel to the hotel.

Fantastic location in Franschhoek, endless breath taking views. Good service coupled with friendly staff wether you are on a romantic weekend or as we were on a business trip with a high powered delegation from overseas.

The setting is obviously quite pretty - the photo's suggest so and it is confirmed upon arrival. Villas with views of the mountains and water are certainly well worth staying in. Franschhoek is naturally a beautiful place and L'Ermitage adds to it. What sets it apart is the attentive, friendly and accommodating service provided by the team on duty during...

I stayed in this establishment for one night recently on a leadership team retreat. What a stunning oasis of tranquility. I was fortunate to stay in a chateau room which was beautifully appointed with plenty of room including a kitchenette, bountiful cupboard space and a stunning bathroom. The intelligent lighting system was a nice touch and the turn-down service was...

My wife and I stayed at the L'Ermitage as part of our honeymoon tour of SA. Franschoek is an amazing town and well worth adding to any itinerary for people who enjoy food, wine and views. The complex is situated slightly out of town which does mean you are reliant on transfers to reach some of the restaurants; its location...

Stayed at this hotel for a work trip. The staff were friendly and check in was a breeze. The offer of bubbly at check in was a nice touch.
