We spent a weekend in the Kastanje cottage in Le Chataigne, and wow, what an absolutely beautiful place. The Franschoek river is only a few metres from the cottage with beautiful trees and the mountain setting the seen for a perfect view as you sit on the very private little stoep.

The cottage was beautifully decorated, had everything that you needed and a personal touch tied everything together. The wine on the farm which is available in the cottage was fantastic, and every bottle is signed by the winemaker himself. Another charming personal touch.

You won't regret booking here. It is everything that you want when visiting the winelands.

My fiance and I spent 5 days in Franschoek/Stellenbosch for wining and dining. La Chataigne is perhaps not the biggest wine farm, but the wines they produce is absolutly World Class. Suzann who guided us through their palette of wines was very knowledgeable and inspirational when she offered us to try their wines.
The wine farm is absolutely worth a visit and their wines has to be enjoyed at site.
Thx Suzann :-)

A lovely little farm. The wine was beautiful especially the Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely touch with the label signed by the owner and we were lucky enough to get a personal one. The setting was idyllic set just outside of the main part of Franchshoek amongst the mountains and the hills. Go and try it for yourself!!

We stayed in the Marron cottage on La Chataigne and would recommend it to other guests any day. The cottage is well kitted out and one can see that real attention to detail has been given to everything (e.g. lovely soft bed linen, quality kitchen appliances, really clean and fresh). Actually "fresh" sums up this quaint little cottage which has a slightly modern countryide feel to it. We stayed there with our family and our children (aged 6 and 8) loved playing under the trees, and we enjoyed knowing that they were safe and we could really relax. What also struck me was the excellent value for money, as the accommodation in the area can be very expensive. This is somewhere we will certainly be coming back to.

We went with another couple and had simply the best time. Had all the facilities we needed in a self-catering spot. The bathrooms were divine and the rooms and beds super comfortable. Would definately rate it a 3* ++. What an amazing stay :)

We spent 2 glorious nights at La Chataigne. Beautifully appointed cottages, stacks of firewood thoughtfully provided for huge fires at night and also for a braai. Delicous wines from the vineyard. We will go back in the summer for sure!

So what do you need for a getaway with 2 toddlers? Space for them to run and corners to investigate to help get rid of their daily allowance of energy .What to the parents need ? A braai place for dad, microwave for mom to wash bottles in and a fireplace to relax with once above mentioned tots are in bed. La chataigne was all of this. We stayed in on of the 2 bedroom cottages. Both en suite. The one bathroom has a bath - perfect to clean the tods in ( or get warm in winter) while the other one has 2 showers. The decor is understated elegant. As it being winter we really enjoyed the fireplace. You can walk around on the farm and I am sure the swimming pool must be delightful in summer. It is a short drive to town and to Boschendal were we had picnic. We will definitely visit again
