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.

Spacious well appointed cottages on a delightful wine farm. We enjoyed using the swimming pool and braai facilities. Suzaan was very responsive to emails and the booking process was seamless. Thanks for a great few days in your beautiful valley !

The La Chataigne Cottages are a must on our visits to Franschoek. Private, peaceful, clean and spacious self catering cottages with a very beautiful shared pool area with great views over the winelands. We have stayed is two different cottages and are always happy to arrive.

Beautiful cottage with terrace overlooking trees surrounding a small river. Kitchen and bathrooms well equiped. Not really for summer, but there was also a fire place. One of the two bathrooms only had a bath tub. Would love to stay here again, also for longer periods.

Thank you for your lovely review received. We have noticed your comment that our cottages are not really for summer, and would like to get your feedback on how we can make our cottages more comfortable for summer. We do supply roof fans in the rooms, as well as a loose standing fan for the kitchen/lounge area. There is a swimming pool area which the cottages share, and lovely oak trees around the cottage for the hot summer days. Any other suggestions regarding this will be appreciated and considered in the future. We hope to welcome you back at La Chataigne in the near future. Kind Regards Suzaan White La Chataigne

The Chestnut cottage lies secluded with views on the wine fields and mountains around. Its perfect for a couple for a romantic weekend or just relax. Well-equipped with everything you need, also if you decide to have a braai at home in stead of at the numerous nearby restaurants and vineyards. Suzaan made sure we had a very pleasant stay, again! Thanx!

We had the great pleasure of staying at LaChataigne on our visit to Franschhoek wine country. First off the place is very private and well concealed from the road. Be sure to get very detailed directions on how to find it. Once there you are in Shangri-La. The villas are charming, well furnished, and set in back of the vines and in front of a babbling stream. Great security, beautiful private surrounds, and best of all they have Suzaan the manager. She was so wonderful helping us plan our 3 days there in wine country. She made all our restaurant reservations and was so sweet and personable. It was simply the best. Make sure to try their homemade orange marmalade.

What a lovely place, great people, great surround and great cottage. My only criticism is that the cottage was not serviced, we had to do our own dishes and beds. Would have been great if there was a cleaning service.

Dear Christel, Thank you for your lovely review and score, and we are glad you have enjoyed your stay. As we are self-catering cottages, we do not service our cottages only a daily basis, but if needed this can be organised in advance at a small additional fee. For people staying over a longer period, the ladies cleaning our cottages will normally come in every third day and make the beds, give fresh towels and do a general tidy up of the cottage. We do apologise if you did not know about this extra service we offer, and hope to welcome you back very soon. Kind Regards Suzaan White La Chataigne

If you are visiting Franschoek and have own transport, this is a fabuous location near the town, but you feel you are off the beatean track. Charming 3 cottages on the charming La Chataigne. Beautiful decor, excellent cleanliness and ticked all the boxes for us. Dont think you will watch TV, no TV there which was part of the charm. We loved it
