We stayed here on a Saturday night in February. The welcome was friendly and we able to drop our bags and head out for some wine tasting before checking in. We were in the back courtyard room which was very spacious, spotless, with a large king bed. The bathroom is very large and had everything that we needed. Our only issue was that our international (European) plugs did not work here, but we were able to charge our things at breakfast with an adaptor provided by the hotel. As the guest house is located about 1km from the main street of Franschhoek, it was very quiet at night. Breakfast was a very good: we did not try any of the hot dishes as the cereals, fruit, breads and jam were more than sufficient for us. Very friendly, engaging staff. A good choice for our Franschhoek stay.

Lovely stay in the pool room, plenty of space. Could do with net curtains for privacy in the day. Comfortable bed and double showers and sinks. Less than 1km from main road ib town, easy walk. Breakfast choices were very good.

We stayed at La Ferme Vive La Vie during our Franscchoek portion of our Honeymoon in South Africa. Annalize was very welcoming. We had the second floor room overlooking the pool area. The room was great and bed very comfy. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruits, baked items and eggs/omelettes made to order, very well done. We only had a chance to take advantage of the pool area for an hour upon our arrival, but it was a relaxing, serene hour. The main street is about a 10 minute walk, so depending on how much wine you've had, it is certainly doable. I would definitely recommend!

We stayed in the Courtyard room which was very roomy, badly laid out with poor lighting but a good bed. The breakfast was excellent and capably served by the excellent Annalize. It is some distance from the Main Street and restaurants so we drove down and left the car towards the bottom of Reservoir St. No staff are in the guesthouse after 6pm.
