Located in a mandarin farm and only a 3min drive from 'downtown' Franschhoek, this was the perfect quiet location for our family stay. The owners were very gracious and always ready to help. We had one unit that had hot water problems but that was sorted out quickly. Our room had a lovely outdoor sitting/BBQ area with views of the mountains and vineyards. The property is self catering and the rooms are well equipped. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool in the afternoon, which is located at the bottom of the property. Wifi is available on the property but only by the managers house. Nice place, would stay again.

Happy Valley self catering units are located in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley, surrounded by the majestic Franschhoek Mountains and beautiful vinyards. Easy to find, affordable, a small distance from the small shopping center and a stone’s throw from an array of fine restaurants and wine farms. Personally owned and run by Willie and Glenys Huggett, on a small citrus farm with river frontage, the three cottages and the manor house have different configurations of accommodation all spacious, well equipped, with indoor and outdoor areas to relax We had a very enjoyable 4 day stay, with friends, at Happy Valley mid July 2017. The manor - La Maison - is a very comfortable and homely house, with spacious bedrooms and living area and a fully equipped kitchen. The lovely cottages Laragne and Pavilion share a cosy quart yard with La Maison. The cottages, each with 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms and a separate lounge and kitchen area, ideal for couples or small families. La Maison on the other hand is perfect for a bigger group with its four en-suite bedrooms. Both La Maison and the cottages have fireplaces to keep you warm on those chilly winter days. Due to inclement weather, Willie, on request, provided us, with a “braai” (and enough wood) in the court yard for us to enjoy a typical South African "braai" (barbecue). This was already our second time that we have stayed at Happy Valley, with November 2016 being the first. We are sure to come back again!

Great accomodation in a delightful setting. We walked to 4 wineries, Maison, Leopards Leap, Moreson was a bit far in the heat, and La Motte. No DUI problems! We had dinner at La Motte. Great little place for coffee next door.
