Travellers' Choice
At the foot of the Middagkrans mountain and only a ten-minute walk from the beautiful village of Franschhoek, lies the historic Bo La Motte Farm, which has been returned to its 'Wine Farm' origins with the harvest being processed in the restored wine cellar. Only ten minutes walk from Franschhoek village, the gourmet centre of South Africa, Bo La Motte Wine Farm has five beautifully furnished self-catering cottages, all in their own unique settings around the farm.

Owl Cottage was great for us as a family of 5 - while not high spec it had everything we required, and the staff and welcome were excellent. It was a good walk in to Franschoek (probs 15 mins) but very easy. The only thing we missed having from the cottage was a great view of the beautiful mountains which is one of the most amazing bits of the area.

We stayed in Goose Cottage which feels like you are in your own world. The views are amazing, the cottage super well stocked with things for a self catering stay (not that we ever cooked more than a coffee). The beds are comfy. They also have installed inverters for when load shedding happens which means you still have some power for main lights and charge your phones . They have also provided both a regular kettle and a gas kettle so you cans till have a cuppa. We only had the power go once and that was due to a fire nearby affecting the power lines and it lasted a couple of hours before it was sorted. The location is perfect. It 's just outside the main town so very peaceful, but you can walk in or it's a 2-5 min drive depending which end of the high street you want. This was our second time staying at Bo La Motte and we will definitely be back.

We recently stayed at Pear Tree cottage, which was a wonderful experience. The cottage is in a secluded location overlooking the lake and mountains to the front, and vineyards and more mountains to the rear! It felt very private and peaceful yet was only a short walk/few minutes drive from the centre of Franschhoek. The cottage was extremely well equipped, with a spacious open plan living area and a covered verandah which included a braai (BBQ) and tools. There was also an open patio with sunloungers. There were a couple of local bottles of wine (additional reasonable cost) in the fridge on our arrival. We spent the first evening having a braai and listening to the birds and cicadas - a real South African experience! There is also a children's climbing frame and a pool onsite, a short walk from the cottage. Christelle, the manager, was very friendly and extremely helpful both before arrival and during our stay. She accommodated a request for early check-in (a member of my party wasn't well). We absolutely loved our stay here, and if I could award 6 stars, I would!

Beautiful self-catering spot on a small wine farm. Loved the morning greetings from Jubba (part of the small dog pack on the farm ). As well as a few ‘good morning’ greetings from the friendly farm chicks. We stayed in the pump house- well equipped & spacious, with views of the vineyards. Accommodation is geared for load-shedding (major plus)! The location is perfect for a quick drive or a walk into town but perfectly situated to experience the tranquility of farm life. I have stayed in Franschoek a few times- and this is by far a winner! Will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Oak cottage. Beautiful location, comfortable cottage, well equipped and an easy walk into Franschhoek for lunch. We were there for a week shortly after the flooding, it was impressive to see that most of the damage had been repaired. A couple of observations (not a criticism) it would be fantastic to have a usb charging plug in the property (saves having to go and buy one - all other stays had a few in the property- so if you will need to charge iPhone etc, remember to take a plug until such time as the cottages are equipped with them. Furnishings should be checked more often as handle fell off the clothing drawer in the bedroom as we were unpacking.

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend a birthday party. The accommodation is spotless, everything works. Magnificently settled with incredible views of the vineyards and mountains. Greenery for days. We had the most wonderful stay. We will definitely be back. Quaint, affordable and simply stunning

An absolute delight! Large rooms, crisp linen with tasteful furniture. Well equipped kitchen and bathrooms with towels and appropriate toiletries. The setting is peaceful and beautiful. A lovely jungle gym and cute reservoir pool for the kids. I wish our stay had been longer. Highly recommended!
