La Chataigne Farm is a wine farm with cottages set 7km outside of Franschhoek Town in the winelands. Our guests have a choice of three quaint Riverside Cottages, set within metres of the Franschhoek River, and two contemporary Stable Cottages with mountain views and private pools. All of our cottages are self-catering with an open plan living area, fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and bbq/braai facilities. The Riverside Cottages have north and south facing veranda's and share The Orchard Pool for hot summer days. The Stable cottages have spacious decks with private pools. All of our cottages offer a tranquil space for a relaxing getaway. Guest are welcome to walk along the river bordering the farm, meander through the vineyards, soak up the sun at the Orchard Pool, enjoy a game of boules at sunset, and pick vegetables and herbs out of the Garden. End off your day relaxing on the stoep (verandah/patio) and sipping on a glass of wine from the very vineyards spread out before you.

Wonderful stay! We stayed in a darling cottage that was comfortable and clean. Our family of 4 had a great time at La Chataigne. The property is gorgeous and staff was friendly with great suggestions of things to do and see nearby. We highly recommend this great venue. It is a few miles out of town so you probably need a car when visiting.

We recently stayed in the stand alone cottages on the river, these are well equipped and offer a comfortable environment while catering for the varying weather conditions (fireplace, electric blankets and fans). Staff are friendly and efficient. This is close to Franschhoek and allows you to experience the farm life without being in town.

We loved our stay on this beautiful farm. Perfectly sized cottage for our family of four that was tastefully and thoughtfully fitted - with electric blankets that were a real treat on the cold wintry weekend that we were there! We enjoyed the sounds of the river gushing past, the taste of the fresh carrots and sage picked from the veggie garden, the blazing fire in the evening and the close proximity to the town's wine estates and restaurants. All in all a wonderful stay. Thank you!

We had such a lovely time at La Chataigne cottages. They were beautifully decorated, cozy, and very private, plus set against a stunning backdrop of mountains. I will caution that google maps did not take us to the right place and sometimes the team was slow to respond to email, but both were easy fixes and we had a wonderful time!
