We had a wonderful few days at Colin and Annelise's place in Franschhoek - we couldn't have imagined a warmer welcome. The room was a dream (Marseilles - the huge upstairs room with it's own terrace) and the breakfast really delicious. All the staff are so friendly and we really felt at home here, able to relax and have a...

Therefore when we returned this year we decided to spend a few days in the town to explore it further. On searching for accommodation we chose Le Petit Paris for...

Run by a lovely couple, with beautifully presented rooms, an inviting pool and patio, and an excellent breakfast every morning - the breakfast room, like the bedrooms, is impeccably decorated, playing gentle French jazz/lounge background music (and Stella Starlight Trio one morning - new to me, which I will now purchase as a reminder of our lovely stay at Le...

This was our second visit to Franschhoek and we were delighted to have discovered Le Petit Paris on this visit. Colin and Annelise are delightful hosts and very helpful with local knowledge. Their guest house has been renovated (re-built) to a very high standard and is extremely comfortable. Our room on the ground floor was large, light and airy and...

We spent 2 nights in Le Petit Paris - hosts Colin & Annelise were wonderful, friendly and helpful. It is perfectly situated, walking distance to town, spectacular views of the mountain and exceptionally comfortable room.

This was the most perfectly situated and well presented hotel we could have chosen for our trip. We have one more night here and to say we will miss this place is an understatement. The hotel has been beautifully restored and adapted into a very well laid out Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Versailles room which had 3...

Great location on a quiet road only a minutes walk to shops and restaurants. The owners were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast delicious. We stayed in the honeymoon suit (even though we weren't on honeymoon) and what a stunning room. Such attention to detail and an amazing view from every room. Good wifi too!

I can not speak highly enough of this guest house. It is a little gem! Colin and Annelise could not have done more to make our stay memorable. The guesthouse has only been opened a few months and has been decorated with a beautiful, modern, authentic french style. All the staff were helpful. Five star service in a guesthouse -...
