Winelands, South Africa
Impeccably situated in the heart of South Africa’s oldest town, La Quartier Francais blends heritage with contemporary tastes. Roses blossom in the central courtyard, romance seems to hang in the air, and all of the rooms are wonderfully spacious. Step inside and you’re enveloped by the tranquility of the countryside. Step outside and the charms of the town are on the doorstep.
We love visiting Le Quartier Francais for its food. The creative breakfasts are worth waking up early for, while the on-site restaurant is regularly celebrated as one of the best in Africa. Sublime drinks are a feature of any stay, including decadent wines sourced from the nearby vineyards.
The central location makes Le Quartier Francais perfect for relaxed, unguided wine tasting in Franschhoek. And when you return to the hotel after the vineyards, you’re welcomed by an oasis of tranquility. Two of the deluxe auberge suites have private swimming pools and there’s a fabulous private villa for families. Le Quartier rooms and Le Quartier suites come in different sizes and styles so you can choose one to suit your desires and budget. All rooms and suites have majestic views over the vineyards.
We’ve seen how the hotel has developed its own trademark hospitality. Much like the Franschhoek Valley wines, there’s an attention to detail that rewards the sophisticated visitor, allowing stresses to quickly melt away. If you’re seeking a luxury getaway without giving up on convenience, La Quartier Francais is ideal.
The private villa and auberge suites are good for families but note that the hotel has a very adult-focused atmosphere.
