A hidden gem of captivating charm, Le Quartier Francais is set in the delightful enclave of Franschhoek. Within a one hour drive of the vibrant city of Cape Town, this is an ideal base for exploring the Western Cape and of course the Winelands. Hosting a range of accommodation options, the Auberge houses 21 rooms and suites. Simple and spacious, the bedrooms feature Egyptian linens, deep down duvets and comfortable sitting areas. The Four Quarters offer four exclusive, contemporary suites overlooking a central courtyard - serviced by a full time butler. The Cottage offers two en suite bedrooms (one twin, one king), two lounges with fireplace and private pool and provides the perfect place for a family stay.

Any stay at Le Quartier Francais is bound to be influenced by the superb gastronomy available. Contemporary and creative, the finest of local seasonal ingredients are used in The Tasting Room with a selection of award-winning courses. A complete gastronomic journey can be experienced at Le Quartier Français. Sticky buns for breakfast, tapas in The Living Room terrace and award-winning South African inspired cuisine by Margot Janse in the award-winning Tasting Room. It is the extra-ordinary staff; the opulently comfortable rooms and the attention to detail that ensure that this hotel is the ultimate spoiling.
