On the side of a mountain overlooking the Franschhoek valley, stands La Petite Ferme Guest Suites; an award-winning restaurant and a boutique winery. Renowned for its delicious food, La Petite Ferme also offers romantic bed and breakfast accommodation at an affordable price. Located just outside the town centre, it is a short car ride to the restaurants and shops of central Franschhoek. We think it is the perfect spot for a few night’s honeymoon stay in the winelands.
Rooms at La Petite Ferme
The accommodation is set amongst vineyards on a working wine farm, all boasting magnificent views across the valley. The 4-star, Vineyard Suites are beautifully appointed rooms that are warm and cosy for cold wet winters, but also air conditioned and cool for hot summers, when a dip in the private pool is a welcome respite from the midday sun.
The French-inspired suites have a private lounge with a fireplace, under-floor heating, a fully-stocked mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities and television / DVD player. The air-conditioned bedrooms feature a separate dressing room,an extended-length bed (some are four posters), draped in rich cotton and tastefully finished with a down duvet and crisp, white linen. The en suite bathrooms have under-floor heating and heated towel rails, as well as a large twin-head, walk-in shower.
Outside each of the suites there is a private veranda, with table and chairs to enjoy the view and a private plunge pool surrounded by stunning valley and vineyard views.
The estate hosts a number of wine tasting and evening entertainment functions which can be found on their website. The Franschhoek valley has so much to offer aside from wine tasting tours; sample artisan foods such as cheese, chocolates and olives as well as hiking, horse riding and mountain biking. Pearl Valley, Paarl and De Zalze are just some of the golf courses that can be reached easily from Franschhoek.

ReviewsIn our opinion: A perfect retreat offering private villa style rooms. It is possible to walk down into Franschhoek but it is a steep climb back up. There are no evening meals served at the hotel but it is possible to get a taxi so that you don't need to drink and drive. The rooms are beautiful, perfect for a honeymoon. Great value.
