This was an absolutely charming find and a great way to end off our South African adventure. The rooms here are extremely large and very luxurious, with super comfortable beds and great linens. It is also hard to beat waking up amid a working vineyard every morning, the views are gorgeous and the air fresh and crisp. The best part about waking up at La Petite Dauphine? The breakfasts at Cafe Bon Bon are hands down the best we had in our entire 16 days in Africa - freshly made croissants, scrambled eggs of the right consistency, wonderfully plump smoked trout... I could go on and on! The seamless service of course added to our memorable stay, the two Stefans and the restaurant staff were very helpful and friendly. Location wise it is a little out of town but the best restaurants around Franschhoek are no more than a 5 min drive away. Definitely recommended as a base for anyone wishing to explore the area.
