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.

This little gem was exactly what we needed for Valentines day. Wonderful place with soul, little cottage souranded by nature where peace was guaranteed. Owners are wondeful people, giving an extra touch to already wonderful experience. We got upgraded to Chestnut cottage due to special occasion and new baby on the way and are are truly grateful.

Spent 4 nights here and it was an absolute dream. Everything you need except food but they did leave us milk, tea and coffee!! The place was spotless, modern, well presented and felt like home from home. The pool was clean, well kept and a gas bbq, there was also wood if we wanted a fire! We will be back!

Our stay in the newly renovated Chestnut cottage was fabulous. Set on the edge of a flowing stream its privacy and peace is perfect. The decor is elegant and modern with no expense spared on comfort and convenience. Views across the vineyards , private pool, easy parking and access to the cottage all a pleasure. I would return in a heartbeat!

Two couples booked a riverside cottage over Christmas. Have absolutely no complaints, the description on the website is what you get. Unfortunately the three days were marred with bad weather, rain and cold winds, so no outside activity. The Braii area is under the patio, so if we wrapped up we could cook. The kitchen was a bit tight and only two comfortable seats in the lounge. There is no TV or games, the two bedroomed cottage is tight for two couples. Would certainly visit again, but book a cottage with private pool.

Beautifully designed little cottage with everything that you could need, done in a simple, clean style. So comfortable that we could have stayed for weeks. Well located just outside Franschoek and near many fine restaurants, the favourite of which we found to The Werf at Boschendal. Richard, Julie and Danny were helpful but unobtrusive and the cottage feels safe, with interesting walks on the farm among the vines and by the river. We will definitely come back.
