The service we received here was so amazing. From when I booked to the day we left. We had to reschedule due to covid and still the staff was friendly. The views are so breathtaking from all around. And the wine farm as well as the cottage we stayed in were so welcoming. Since we brought our daughter we stayed at one of the two family cottages. Kastajee was it. Situated an hour outside of Cape Town in a small wine town of Franschoek. On arrival we hit the pool before heading out to get diner. The cottages are self-catering and come fully equipped with cutlery, stove, fridge and many more to make it as homely as possible. We were able to make breakfast. And you don't have to worry about groceries as there is a Woolworths just less than 10km from the town. This place has many things to do and at super affordable rates. And if you don't have kids I really recommend the Chesnut with it grape vine and mountain views. And the wine was amazing and o e of the best things about staying here. And we like that we can still order wine to be delivered for us in Johannesburg. I would recommend staying here and planning to go back for my winter get away without the kids. And the family cottages are nestled besides the flowing stream.

In May 2021 my wife and I spent 1 night at La Chatâigne, a very beautiful wine farm in Franschoek that dates back to 1688. We very much appreciated the friendly welcome from Julie the owner as well as Izzey who showed us to our room. For our stay we chose the Blanc stable cottage and wow were we delighted we did! The design and decor is classic contemporary elegance and comfort. The attention to detail in this accommodation is in every sense fantastic! As for the private deck, plunge pool and spectacular views - wow! I think we may just have found our favourite place to stay in Franschoek :) Oh, and their 2014 Merlot is delicious!

Had a 2 day break in La Chataigne and wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in Noir cottage. Absolutely beautiful. So Stylish. Beautiful views and our own pool. It was idyllic. The cottage has a braai; there is an excellent vegetable garden , it was a real treat to pick fresh lettuce and herbs to accompany our evening meals. We also enjoyed playing boules in a stunning setting. Watching the sun go down over the mountains from our deck was so special. Highly recommended.

We stayed 2 nights in the Blanc stable cottage. It is modern with the most beautiful view and the cottage has everything you need. We celebrated out 21st wedding anniversary and it was definitely the perfect choice! The pool and terrace is perfect to watch the sun set. We will definitely visit again!
