We loved staying at La Chataigne. Having stayed in Franschhoek on many, many occasions over the last twenty years, staying in Noir Cottage was by far the most relaxing. It is is in a perfect location looking out over the mountains. The self catering room had everything one needs for a holiday stay. Will definitely be returning.
We were really pleased to find this cottage, we visit Franschhoek once every year and La Chataigne provides the ideal location away from the crowds. The cottage was really comfortable, every conceivable item was in the kitchen, the bedrooms are great and there is a veranda on both sides of the cottage to suit the weather. A bonus 2as a pair of Spotted Eagle Owls quietly calling in the tree above the cottage as we sat out to look at the stars.
La Chataigne provides a great spot to visit the Franschhoek region. The riverside cottage we were in had two spacious and comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. The location is a short drive from town and is close to many wine estates.
The bed in our room was bad. The bedding and matrass was old. Struggled to sleep on the matrass, nor firmness and could feel the springs. The rest of the unit was lovely, with an amazing shower. Sufficient self catering equipment as well with nice braai area on stoep. They also supplied us with some wood
My cousin and i stayed in the 1 bedroom cottage, for a ladies weekend break.
What lovely accommodation, neat, tidy and with everything you could want. Lovely braai area with large patio and a river running through it..tranquil and breathtaking.
The team were very friendly and helpful and not intruisive..
Will definitely visit again!
