I cannot say anything negative about this place. It was stunning. The gardens and the scenery beautiful. We love Cafe Bon Bon anyway after previous visits, but to be able to have breakfast there every day was a real pleasure. Dinner in the evening is outstanding and the dining room decor is very special, with beautiful paintings which are for...

A magical place. Loved the Nespresso machine in the loom and the great L'Occitane products in the room. The dinner was amazing with the local Cab red wine and the cherry on the cake was the Italian piano man. Hope we can return some day.

Me and my wife stayed at this property on our honeymoon a couple months ago for four nights. It was about a four minute drive from the center of Franschhoek so was very convenient. The other vineyards and restaurants were mostly all within a ten or fifteen minute drive from this farm. It was overall lovely with its own vineyards,...

This is a lovely nice quite place within the wineyards. The lodges are well styled and have a lot of space. The lodges are clean, have wifi and an alarm system. Airco for summertime, fireplace for wintertime. Some have a private pool and others a pool to share. The lodges have private parking spaces and you can watch the squirrels...

We spent three nights in Franschhoek and selected La Petite Dauphine, based on recommendations of a colleague in Geneva. The setting couldn't have been more spectacular -- the service beyond description. We loved everything about it, including the breakfasts on the terrace, the grounds and jacaranda trees -- as well as the location. Just out of town, five minutes away...

Beautiful cottages with very nice mountain views in a 12 roomed boutique wine estate. Has its own restuarant that serves a lovely breakfast and is also open for lunch and dinner and hosts special musical events. No common social area beside the restuarant. No evening service for the room but there are emergency numbers. 5 minute drive to the village....

I am not prone to exaggeration but La Petite Dauphine is a special place. Nestled in its own vineyard, with glorious mountain views, this is a wonderful retreat. We were in room 1 which was vast with a huge bed, sitting area, freestanding bath and shower and an outdoor plunge pool we shared with the adjoining villa. Local wine is...

We stayed here for 3 nights during a 2 week holiday in South Africa. The property is very easy to find, just a couple of minutes drive from Franschhoek, and the property itself is very well maintained with beautiful grounds. We were given a complimentary upgrade to Suite 8 which was a lovely room, probably the largest hotel room we've...
