We recently stayed at La Bourgogne's cottages in Franschhoek. Firstly the town is absolutely charming - a quaint main street with lovely old buildings, cute shops and delicious restaurants. It was a little tricky to find the correct entrance to the cottages, even following the instructions provided. But we finally did and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful farm setting....

VALUE FOR MONEY! 3 km from the centre of Franshhoek. We stayed in a 1 bedroom chalet. Clean, comfortable and everything you need! Our children aged 5 and 8 slept on the sleeper couch in the lounge. No Tv. I love the no TV!!Fantastic views. Close to everything. Children kept busy by Sasha & Joey (the dogs). Really great weekend.... More

We stayed in Oak Leaf Cottage with friends for the Literary Festival. We did not get to spend too much time at the cottage with all the entertainment on offer but found the accommodation to be very comfortable. The beds were comfortable with crisp fresh linen. Overall the accommodation was very clean and met all our requirements. The staff were... More

You don't need more than a room, lounge, kitchen and bathroom when visiting Franschhoek, and Plum Cottage ticked all the boxes. Beautiful surroundings right by the river, with an abundance of birdlife flying from tree to tree all day, makes this place the picture of serenity. Not to mention that La Borgogne is right across the bridge, giving the freedom... More

Our two bed self catering cottage was excellent - well appointed with utensils and toiletries, no TV (hurrah) and in a lovely garden. We were adopted for two days by friendly collie Joey and enjoyed this place, cooking breakfast for ourselves and then using it as a base for this amazing wine valley. I loved the accommodation itself, and also... More

Very well turned out cottages set close enough to walk into the central/main road of Franschoek. Beautiful views of the mountains and an excellent swimming pool and gardens. The welcome staff could have been a bit more helpful as we were not offered any of the facilities from the farm, namely picnics or wine tasting, and she could not assist... More
