Hard to believe this a place is just on the north end of Franschhoek tucked in the trees.

It feels like an oasis with it’s plentiful trees that hide everything.

The rooms are well appointed and the staff is friendly and eager to help.

Absolutely beautiful. My husband and I stayed 2 nights at La Petite Dauphine . Our lodge was gorgeous and the surroundings out of this world . The restaurant served tasty breakfasts and their mushroom risotto at lunch was probably the best I've ever tasted. Staff and service very good and excellent value for money .

La Petite Dauphine is a wonderful place. The team is so helpful...I want to say Issac the gate guard is the most positive, smiling face I have ever seen. Stephan is a wonderful host and the dining crew is perfect.

We decided to get away with our little 4 legged child and booked a suite. Well we were presently surprised.

We had suite 8 with our own plunge pool & private deck. Our room was charming in a lush French farm house way with beautiful art work & pieces of furniture and fresh crisp white linen on the bed. Beautiful views from both bathroom, bedroom & deck. It is a dream (except that one does hear traffic unfortunately) but we loved every moment.

The gardens are beautiful.

The only thing I would like to add would be a torch in the room so one could walk to dinner & back without using ones phone. Some nuts would be nice in the bar, as we don't eat crisps.

We will be back in winter to enjoy the cold and fire place.

Beautiful guest house, perfectly equipped. Huge room and bed. Lovely decoration. Bathroom with heated floors and towel rack. The breakfast couldn't be best, all kind of eggs preparation, fruits, cheese, breads, etc.
Kind staff.
Highly recommended!
