La Petite Ferme: A View-Drenched Hotel in The Franschhoek Winelands

La Petite Ferme: A View-Drenched Hotel in The Franschhoek Winelands

Offering some of the best panoramas of the Franschhoek Valley, this intimate four-star boutique hotel is a getaway dream come true.

Situated in the exclusive resort town of Franschhoek, La Petite Ferme is a well-heeled destination, not least for its superb collection of small-batch wines that are produced on the property, but also for its breathtaking setting, farm-fresh food and, of course, warm hospitality.

La Petite Ferme Gardens

An expansive lawn, dotted with roaming peacocks (and revellers enjoying good wine and even better views) lines the front of the property, with the charming, glass-fronted restaurant just behind it, where guests are welcome to enjoy daily breakfast and lunch, and dinner (served daily from November until April, and May to October on Fridays and Saturdays only).

And then there’s the hotel, whose nine elegant rooms all boast spellbinding valley, mountain and vineyard views from their perch on the northern slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains.

The lodgings

La Petite Ferme Lodgings

An abundance of attractions

La Petite Ferme Franschhoek Wine Tasting

There’s loads to do on the estate: leisurely walks, strenuous hikes, a complimentary guided vineyard tour where you can taste a selection of exclusive estate wines, mountain-biking with one of the estate’s fleet of bicycles and, of course, lounging by the pool.

La Petite Ferme Franschhoek Restaurant

The seasonal menu at the view-drenched restaurant offers an array of fresh, prettily plated starters, mouth-watering mains (the slow-roasted lamb is delicious), and decadent desserts prepared by head chef Kyle Norris, together with executive sous chef Stephen Raaff and Pastry chef Ester Labuschagne.

We can’t think of a better way to enjoy a weekend (or week) in the Winelands.
