La Fontaine stands right in the heart of Franschhoek so it's within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our rooms were away from the main house in a building with its own lounge and kitchen set in a charming garden. The "honesty bar" was a well-stocked fridge in the kitchen. Guests wrote down what they had selected from the fridge then paid at reception on check-out. There was complimentary port and dessert wine. The rooms were large, airy and comfortable. Excellent breakfasts were served in the garden under the vines. Cathy was very helpful and suggested places for us to visit as well as booking restaurants for us. The plumbing in the bathroom was somewhat quirky!
