The hotel, which has 15 well appointed rooms and 2 suites, is renowned for its innovative cuisine; an eclectic blend of Cape flavours with a provençal influence that has led to a placing on ‘South Africa’s top 10 restaurants’ list for the past five years running. Le Quartier Francais also pride themselves on their friendly and world class service - as acknowledged by their recent inclusion in Tatler’s “Best Small Hotels in the World”. The hotel rooms are all very spacious, with luxurious furniture and décor, en-suite bathrooms and wood-burning fires for the cooler winter evenings. All the rooms look out onto a central garden courtyard and swimming pool. There is also a private library and a 24 seater private cinema from which a selection classic films and latest releases are shown. At South Africa’s 2012 Eat Out Awards, the Tasting Room claimed the number two spot in the Top 10 Restaurant’s Category, and Margot Janse, the executive chef, was crowned Chef of the Year 2012.
When to go
The Winelands are a wonderful year-round destination and enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, somewhat like the South of France, which is what makes the area perfect for grape-growing. Summer in Franschhoek is the reverse of the Northern hemisphere. The best season visit is September to March when it is hot, sunny and dry. From April to August it cools down with some rain.
