An ideal base from which to explore the surrounding winelands, Le Quartier Francais is a country retreat located in Franschhoek in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Franschhoek is renowned as the French gourmet capital of the Cape, and Le Quartier keeps with this tradition. We recommend the hotel for anyone with a passion for food and wines, it is a great place to stay if you are visiting the Cape Winelands or on a golf holiday in South Africa.
The retreat first became known for its restaurant of the same name, after which the auberge accommodation was added. Le Quartier’s buildings were originally labourers’ cottages, which have since been restored but still maintain their original Provencal façades. The cottages surround pristine landscaped gardens and a large, natural pool – perfect for relaxing whilst appreciating the mountain and wineland setting.

ReviewsIn our opinion: A lovely tranquil setting just of the main Franschhoek high street. Ideal for 'foodies' but a little pricey for anyone just looking for a few nights in the winelands. The 2 bedroom villas are perfect for sharing between 2 couples.
