Arrived and our booking was missing. But was quickly given a different room. Good points: rooms were large, beautiful location, nice breakfast Not so good points: bathrooms had a distinct cheesy smell I have a feeling they just needed better airing, towels were not replaced (even those on the floor) Also the hotel is not in the centre of town...

Good day thank you for taking your time to review Basse Provence. The roof thatch has recently been repaired with some new thatch. This does give off a grassy smell which some people love and some people don't. Franschhoek offers private taxi's which is convenient but can become expensive. It is advisable to be travelling this area with a car... More

Myself and family booked out the cottage and half the rooms for a family event for 5 nights. The location is very convenient and scenic, in between wine farms, minutes from town which is easy if you have a vehicle but probably not walking distance. Beautiful mountain and vineyard views. Very peaceful and private setting as there are 2 manor... More

We stayed here for just two nights in December, in the little cottage, which is set away from the main house Pros: - cottage is well-appointed, with beautiful and comfortable furniture - the two bedrooms and bathrooms are well-sized, so two couples would be very comfortable, though they may feel a bit claustrophobic in the living area. There was more... More

Nice guesthouse in wine estate, 3km outside of Franshoek. Rooms are neat, staff friendly. We did also a wine tasting in the estate. Breakfast was very rich. Rate reasonable compared to other places in the region. All in all very good experience.

Our family of 4 stayed a night in this quiet and comfortable lodge. The room is clean and well maintained preserving the rustic feel of the winery. Staff were friendly and helpful too. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family members.

Nice and quiet stay at Basse Provence. Rooms are spacious and luxurious. Breakfast and service are excellent. We experienced a little problem during the first evening with a tap disfunctioning causing a flood in the bathroom and first floor. The problem was solved quickly.
