Cottage
Peace & quiet, guaranteed! Petit Plaisir lies in the quaint little town of Franschhoek, a fine wine and dining hotspot and one of South Africa's truly beautiful localities. In fact, there is so much to see and do, that it's best if you don't rush your stay. Petit Plaisir is the perfect romantic hideaway for couples who like to tour on their own terms. Our single cottage offers visitors the ultimate luxury: no porters or guests to disturb your privacy. The cottage is fully equipped and stylishly decorated with the kind of understated sophistication that has earned us a 4-star rating. To make you feel welcome, you receive a bottle of local wine, chocolates, fruit from the valley as well as homemade jam, rusks and biscuits. We invite you to come and enjoy our peaceful seclusion and breathta...Peace & quiet, guaranteed!

This was our second stay at Petit Plaisir in Franschoek and it felt like coming home, for many reasons but mostly because Marlicia and Lois make you feel so welcome and the attention to detail in the cottage is second to none.
