What a fantastic, relaxed place to stay in Franschoek! We used the swimming pool&braai area during our stay. The Merlot cottage had everything we needed and the owners and their manager Marietha, went out of their way to make our 2 night stay out of this world. Will stay here again, loved it.

A perfect spacious apartment in an small vineyard, with a great view on the surrounding mountains and a nice pool. Great place if you wanna go wine tasting in the area or enjoy some of the great restaurants in the area. It is just out of Fransschoek, but still walkable. You could also rent some bikes, as we did.

Stayed two nights, very comfortable. Bedrooms light and airy,beds a good size and very comfortable. Everything you could need for a short stay. Would stay here again. Beware of dogs that protect the property as they roam around freely. They are fine but would be off putting to anyone who is wary of big dogs.

Lovely cottage. All good. If anything I would suggest that the farming staff are a bit friendlier. It will certainly make one feel a lot more welcome. Plug points near mirrors and next to bed will be handy. Small suggestions.... I enjoyed my stay and loved the wine.very comfortable.

We booked out the 2 cottages for 4 ladies, as we all wanted our own rooms. There was ample space and the rooms were clean and spacious. The bathrooms were also very clean. The kitchens were very well equipped with lots of crockery etc, not just 4 of each!. We were really well looked after by Reitha, and we had... More

Was very excited about my stay at La Galiniere but it was quite disappointing. This was also supposed to be a special couple of days away as it was my 21st. On the second day of our stay we had people doing maintenance next door which was loud as the other cottage was right next to ours. They then had... More

Dear Simone, We were very disappointed to hear that your experience at La Galiniere had not met your expectations. Unfortunately, we had sprung a leak in a pipe in the wall of the neighboring cottage, which had to be fixed immediately. Our cottage manager came and explained the problem and apologized for the inconvenience. To provide an improved internet service... More

Loved the cottages - very clean and tidy. Fireplaces helped as it was mid winter. Rooms spacious with good quality carpets - linen good quality. Kitchens well equipped (knives bit blunt) but overall everything one needed. We love our braais outside (even in winter) and missed a under cover area but understand it's not always possible. The property was well... More

Really nice to stay inbetween vineyards, a view change from our apple orchards. Cottages were clean and even milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine for hubby. Wood was supplied, which is normally the down side at most self catering units...to get into the car to get fire wood (ps and nice dry wood). Very cozy for couples... More

We were 4 adults staying in the Merlot cottage. Great place with fully equipped kitchen and the fire place was the star of the weekend. Great pool with braai facilities although we didnt use it because it was winter. Would be a great asset in summer.
