La Petite Ferme

Elegant guesthouse and restaurant on a working wine estate

Five minutes by car from the centre of Franschhoek

Overlooking the Merlot vineyards find a combination of luxury and homeliness.

La Petite Ferme isn’t just a small farmhouse, it is a wine-producing farm and was a restaurant first and foremost. Due to their success, it has been developed into a stunning boutique country, French Riviera-esque home and from home. La Petite Ferme is situated at upon the slopes of the Franschhoek Pass and Middagkrans Mountain. A Franschhoek Restaurant that is situated high up on the mountain overlooking the Franschhoek Valley is world renowned for its approach to rustic contemporary cuisine. This restaurant has been listed by Conde Nast Traveller as one of the top 15 'Best Value' establishments in the world. The award winning La Petite Ferme Winery takes its place amongst Franschhoek’s finest cellars.

Stay in one of the nine individually beautifully designed rooms in a country-style manor house, or the two rustic self-catering cottages or four lakeside lodges. Each room is uniquely designed, but the Deluxe Vineyard Suite is the biggest room with a French four poster bed, large walk in shower with a Victorian bath tub, large lounge areas with a separate guest bathroom and gracious gas fireplace for chilly evenings as well as a larger plunge pool for long summer afternoons.

Activities at La Petite Ferme include a daily guided wine tour with a brief history of the farm, vineyard tour and last but not least the wine tasting or a chocolate experience. For those wanting more than wine, there is a guided farm walk via the vineyards to the Huguenot monument and a visit to the Museum and a cycle to the Berg River Dam including a stop at Grande Provence restaurant And Glenwood vineyards. La Petite Ferme also offers you this picturesque setting in the beautiful valley of Franschhoek for an exclusive wedding.
