La Petite Ferme

On the side of a mountain overlooking the Franschhoek valley, stand La Petite Ferme Guest Suites, an award-winning restaurant and a boutique winery. Renowned for its delicious lunch menus, La Petite Ferme also offers excellent B&B accommodation at an affordable price. Located just outside the town centre, it is a short car ride to the restaurants and shops of Franschhoek. We think it is the perfect spot for a few night's honeymoon stay in the winelands.

La Petite Ferme accommodation is set amongst vineyards on a working wine farm, all boasting magnificent views. The 4-star, Vineyard suites are beautifully appointed rooms that are warm and cosy for cold wet winters, but also air conditioned and cool for hot summers, where a dip in the private pool is a welcome respite from the midday sun.

The French-inspired Vineyard suites have a private lounge with a fireplace, under-floor heating, a fully-stocked mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities and television / DVD. An air-conditioned bedroom features a separate dressing room,an extended-length bed (some are four posters), draped in rich cotton and tastefully finished with a down duvet and crisp, white linen. The full en suite bathroom has under-floor heating and heated towel rails, as well as a large twin-head, walk-in shower. 

Outside each of the suites there is a private veranda, with table and chairs to enjoy the view and a private swimming pool surrounded by stunning valley and vineyard views.

The estate hosts a number of wine tasting and evening entertainment functions which can be found on the website. In the Franschhoek region that are a number of activities including;

  • Wine tasting on horse back
  • Wine tasting
  • Horse Riding
  • Hot air Balloon rides
  • Golfing at Pearl Valley and Stellenbosch
  • Cookery Classes
  • Cheese tasting
  • Gourmet Dining
  • Saturday craft market
  • Wine tram
  • Mountain biking

Franschhoek has so much to offer, from wine tasting tours to artisan foods such as cheese, chocolate and olives as well as hiking, horse riding and golf. Pearl Valley, Paarl and De Zalze are just some of the courses that can be reached easily from Franschhoek.

In our opinion: A perfect retreat offering private villa style rooms. It is possible to walk down into Franschhoek but its a steep climb back up. There are no evening meals served at the hotel but it is possible to get a taxi if you don't want to drink and drive.
