We stayed in the Chestnut cottage, a cottage for two. It is a very clean and comfortable cottage. The stream flows past it and the stoep is a great braai place. Everything you need is there and the personnel were very friendly and helpful. We want to return in winter to light up the indoor fireplace! Romance 101

La Chataigne is the perfect hideaway if you want to feel like you are miles from civilization. We had the most relaxing weekend. The swimming pool and shower were my favorite bits. I could easily have spent a week there!

A major favorite for its secluded riverside cottages tucked away behind bush vines and orchads. Go in September for the pear blossoms and January for the Pears ripe on the orchard trees surrounding the pool. Divine beds, superbly equipped and perfectly located for day trips in the area. It's 7km out of Franschoek centre.

What an AMAZING spot. This was my 4th time and we have already booked for our next visit. Franschhoek is on your doorstep but we find that we generally stay on the farm and chill at the pool. A great place to relax and enjoy time with friends.

Perfectly situated just outside of Franschoek to feel secluded but not so far as to make it difficult to visit surrounding farms, we thoroughly enjoyed our getaway at La Chat. The pool is a particular highlight being set in a beautiful setting within the vineyards. The room was comfortable and luxurious and we immediately felt at home. It's the sort...

This is a beautifully decorated cottage with fully equipped kitchen, sitting & dining area, fireplace, etc. Three cottages share the swimming pool and garden. Reception is located a few hundred yards away.

Truly, this was a special place - very private and perfect for our small family. The cottage was stylishly appointed - really beautiful - and we loved the swimming pool. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We stayed in Cottage #2 and it was lovely. Richard was wonderful and the house was clean, well appointed, comfortable and in a beautiful setting. We also took the opportunity to go across the street and did a tasting. Suzanne did the tasting and she was very informative, kind and fun.

We stayed in the Marron cottage at la Chataigne for 7 days. The cottage had all we wished for. It is situated on the bank of a small stream next to a peach orchard. It was very clean and well equipped. The cottage is quite cool even on hot December days. There is now a spotlight on the braai. The...
