Le Quartier Francais

An ideal base from which to explore the surrounding winelands, Le Quartier Francais is a country retreat located in Franschhoek in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Franschhoek is renowned as the French gourmet capital of the Cape, and Le Quartier keeps with this tradition. It's head chef has been voted Chef of the Year by Relais & Chateaux, a real accolade by this exclusive consortium. We recommend the hotel for anyone with a passion for food and wines, it is a great place to stay if you are exploring the Cape Winelands or on a golf holiday in South Africa. 

The retreat first became known for its restaurant of the same name, after which the auberge was built. Le Quartier's buildings were originally labourers' cottages, which have since been restored but still maintain the original Provencal façade. The cottages surround pristine landscaped gardens and a large, natural pool - perfect for relaxing whilst appreciating the mountain and wineland setting.

Rooms
The 15 luxury double rooms all contain balconies opening onto the landscaped gardens with a natural pool. The exclusive house suite is set in a private garden courtyard with a natural Mediterranean pool and is perfect for honeymooners. All rooms and suites are newly refurbished with modern fittings, refreshing colours and brilliant hand painted fabrics. Authentic Egyptian cotton lines the large beds, and spacious en suite bathrooms contain a separate walk-in shower and bath. The two suites contain a large sitting area complete with a complimentary full bar.

Dining
Voted one of the world's Top 50 restaurants every year since 2005, 'The Tasting Room', is the flagship dining experience at Le Quartier. Choose from 5 or 8 course tasting menus with accompanying wines.

The Lounge Bar offers light meals throughout the day. This is a great place to go to relax, and be assured of good food, wonderful local wines and warm friendly service. You can sit inside, or on the terrace outside and watch the world go by!

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 lovely tranquil setting just of the main Franschhoek high street. Ideal for 'foodies'  but a little pricey for anyone just looking for a few nights in the winelands. The 2 bedroom villas are perfect for sharing between 2 couples.
