Kim and the team at La Fontaine never cease to impress. My partner and I visited the property in September 2021 - our fourth visit for the year. This property has quickly become our go-to getaway destination in the Western Cape. The staff and management are a pleasure to deal with and make you feel at home. We are looking forward to returning in the warmer months when we can make use of the pool!

Property's Favourite Review
Franshoek is not known for being family-friendly, but La Fontaine is changing this. It is an absolutely gorgeous boutique hotel, luxurious accommodation, exquisitely decorated, wonderful food and the staff are incredible. We had a 6 and 8-year-old who basically stayed at La Fontaine the whole weekend because it was "way more fun" and joining the teens and adults around town was boring. This Mom and Dad got a much-needed break, and we actually had to find our kids, who were so busy playing. Kim and Cecelia thank you, Tom and Eden, adore you! Ashleigh we really didn't need to go out to dinner, your menu and cooking were superb, and thanks for catering for the little ones while we went out. DC and Daniel at the bar, you guys are magic and very patient at 3am!! Warrick your friendly smile and attentiveness will not be forgotten. To the cleaning and kitchen staff, we didn't meet, but your effort and hard work did not go un-noticed. Thank you La Fontaine, you are spectacular!!!

Amazing stay! Exceptionally tasteful decor, out going, friendly and highly accommodating staff. The food was impeccable and accommodated a vegan diet to perfection! The cocktails where incredible and our room was extremely warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. Highly recommend a stay at this beautiful boutique hotel!

Warm and welcoming staff, a beautifully appointed room and wonderful breakfast spread - La Fontaine is perfect. It’s just a quick stroll away from the “strip”. So is ideally situated to enjoy and explore the beautiful town of Franschoek. Kim and her team were ready to tend to our every need. Thank you! We will definitely be back.
