We booked 3 nights at La Petite Dauphine and could not have been more pleased. The property is spectacular, the accommodations were great and the service was top notch. We had a one bedroom cottage with nice living area, very comfortable bedroom and great bathroom. Many nice touches like a decanter filled with Port, heated bathroom floors and towel warmers. Breakfast was fantastic with a buffet of fruit, pastries, meats, cheese, juice and your choice of hot entrees. Service was also great. Stefan in reception made dinner reservations, checked on hiking trails and provided answers to every question we had. He even found a large box for us to pack wine and other things purchased. As we were walking back to our room, my wife said to me that we should have borrowed a marker to write our address on the box. No sooner had the said it than someone on the staff came walking up with a marker saying, "Stefan thought you might need this." If you are visiting anywhere near the Cape Town area, do yourself a favor and steal away to La Petite Dauphine. We have traveled to wine regions all over the world and none is as spectacular as Franschoek and you couldn't do better than La Petite Dauphine.
