My partner took me to La Petite Ferme as a surprise for my 30th birthday. We've been to the restaurant before for lunch, and he surprised me at lunch there again that we are also staying in one of the cottages. But I'll elaborate in 2 sections
The restaurant - The restaurant is wonderfully located on the Franschhoek pass with views over the whole Franscchoek valley and mountains beyond. If you sit on the stoep you have an uninterrupted view of everything. The restaurant is only open for lunch and for breakfast for the residents in teh cottages. Lunch at the restaurant is spectacular and the food exquisite. It can get a bit busy in the summer, but seeing as we were there in the winter, we had fires roaring and a quiet restaurant. I will definitely recommend the restaurant for lunch in the winter & summer, as it's very very good. Make a reservation and go.
The accommodation - The accommodation is very luxurious. Each suite is cottage that has a massive lounge with gas fireplace, with the bedroom next to it, all open plan so that you can lie in bed and watch the fire! A massive bathroom is just off the bedroom with views. The cottage has a big private terrace in front with a splash pool overlooking the vineyards and mountains in the distance. Truly wonderfully located and big. It also has everything you want from a 5 star cottage. We had a wonderful stay at La Petite Ferme and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
