We stayed with friends in March this year - for the 4th or 5th time since our honeymoon there 13 years ago - and yet again La Petite Ferme managed to tick all the boxes.
We stayed in both the lakeside lodges and the vineyard suites and they both offer plenty of value for money. The suites have loads of room, some of the best views in Franschhoek, massive comfortable beds, private plunge pool (great for a sundowner glass of estate wine overlooking the mountains), comfortable sitting area, fireplace necessary when the weather turns cold.
The lodges are two bedroomed and are great for sharing a special event - birthday/anniversary - with family and friends. They are fully set up for self catering, but in South Africa's gastronomic capital we didn't bother.
The food in the restaurant is amazing - less fussy than some of the competition down the road - excellent food made really well. As a staying guest it is also much easier to get a table in the restaurant at short notice, which is often necessary. Service was spot on. The estate wines were well worth drinking and added an extra touch to the experience.
