Le Quartier Francais

Franschhoek, Cape Winelands

Le Quartier Francais

Le Quartier Francais is lovely auberge tucked away in the valley of Franschhoek, in the Winelands region. Small and intimate, its rustic Provencal style sets it apart from the grand Cape Dutch homes that the region is famous for.

Le Quartier Français is a charming auberge situated in valley of Franschhoek, in the Winelands region of South Africa's Eastern Cape. It's a small, pretty hotel, with just 21 rooms. It has been decorated in a rustic Mediterranean style, rather than the Cape Dutch fashion that is common to this region.

Le Quartier’s buildings were originally labourers' cottages which have since been restored but still maintain their original Provencal façades. The cottages surround pristine landscaped gardens and a large, natural pool - perfect for relaxing while appreciating the mountain and wineland setting.


Le Quartier Français offers 21 beautifully furnished rooms, each designed with a rustic Mediterranean farmhouse style in mind. All are en-suite, air-conditioned and feature underfloor heating, TV, DVD/CD player, electronic safe and a wood-burning fireplace. In addition there are six suites which open onto secluded gardens and private pools.


Perhaps the highlight of staying at Le Quartier Français is the wonderful cuisine. The Tasting Room offers four, six or eight course dinners from an award winning menu, while iCi is a relaxed street side café and bar open seven days a week - ideal for breakfast, lunch or a casual dinner.

Le Quartier Français is booked on a B&B basis.
