We stayed in one of the lodges, and the view accross the vineyards was spectacular. The sun sets were the perfect backdrop to all of the wine tasting and relaxing.

About La Petite Ferme
La Petite Ferme offers beautiful suites, an award winning restaurant and boutique winery overlooking the Franschhoek valley.
The guest suites are set amongst vineyards on a working wine farm and suit the needs of every traveller looking for luxury and relaxation in the Cape Winelands.
Beautifully appointed, four star rooms are air conditioned for hot summers, as well as being warm and cosy for cold winters.
Franschhoek is a traditional vineyard town in the Western Cape Province famously known as the French Corner of the Cape and is considered to be the food and wine capital of South Africa. Escape to this picturesque corner of South Africa at the foot of the Klein Dassenberg Mountain Range for relaxation and a superb culinary experience accompanied by some outstanding wines.
The area around Franschhoek, which in the Afrikaans language means ‘French corner’, was as the name suggests once a French enclave when over 300 years ago a group of Huguenot settlers arrived fleeing religious persecution. That influence, which nestled right alongside the larger Dutch-speaking community, is what gives the region such a rich and varied history, and unsurprisingly, a taste for fine food and wine.
How to get there
We will help assist you with all necessary internal transfers after booking.
The closest international airport is Cape Town.
Cape Town International Airport serves destinations throughout South Africa and has direct connections to some of the key European and Middle East hubs, with flight times ranging from 10 to 12 hours.
When to go
Southern Africa is a year-round destination. Traditionally the dry winter months (April to October) are best for game viewing, due to the shorter grass, lack of foliage and the absence of water which forces the game to concentrate around the remaining sources of drinking water. Annual rainfall, usually in the form of short afternoon thunder showers that clear up within an hour, occur from December to March. Many species give birth to their young around the start of the rains, so the bush is alive with newborn animals.
Travelling with children
Guest suites are suitable for children who are able to swim.
