Our room (Shyraz) overlooked the spectacular mountain range and opened onto the beautiful gardens, pond and one of 2 pools. It was clear that every care was taken into making the room as homely and immaculate as possible. Lisa, the manager, even put the heater on so it was warm and cozy when we arrived and they provided us with firelighters and wood for the fireplace in our room. When we arrived they also offered us a complimentary bottle of MCC from a local wine farm (Pierre Jourdan) to celebrate our anniversary!

Lisa was wonderfully hospitable and created a warm/friendly atmosphere. The ladies working in the kitchen were also very friendly and went out of the way to make our stay at the guest house exceptional! On our last morning there, we were the only guests, so they set up a breakfast buffet at our table just for us!

The breakfast was delicious and there was a wide selection of treats - from cereals, yogurt and fresh fruit salads to fresh baked breads/croissants, cheeses, cold meats and even the option to order a hot breakfast (eggs and bacon).

They also offer a complimentary tea from 4 - 5pm every day with a scrumptious selection of cakes.

Overall, the convenient location, paired with the exceptional service and the stunning location would make it an ideal guest house for a stay in Franschhoek. We took the Franschhoek tram and it was a quick 10-minute walk to the ticket office.

A definite must for couples seeking a peaceful and romantic retreat!

La Cabriere is an excellent example of South African hospitality - spotless, well-run, fabulous breakfasts, beautiful gardens and mountain views. We four girls loved our 3 nights’ stay and would certainly come back

My wife and i loved coming here for the Franschoek literary festival.,The magnificent mountain views from the very impressive gardens is the perfect peaceful place to relax after a good day in the nearby village.
The accommodation and meals were everything and more than promised on the website.
Lisa and her staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to make your stay special,
We loved spending time here and will definitely be back for next year's festival, or before if we can find any excuse to come to this amazing part of South Africa.
