What an amazing place home from home except lovely views and blue skies !! Great pool and perfect location.will book again on our next trip to South Africa thank you
We loved our 5 days at Orchard Cottage and only wished it could have been longer. The cottage has a beautiful view over the mountains that just soothed our city-souls. It is spacious - our young adult girls each had their own room - very good for family harmony. The kitchen is large and well equipped. Location is great - a short walk in to town. The small pool is icy cold, but given that we were in Franschhoek during a heat-wave, very welcome indeed. The owners are warm and welcoming, but not intrusive. We will definitely be back.
It's even better than the description on TripAdvisor! A lovely and cosy cottage with all the facilities you need for comfortable living
Many thanks to our host Mike, who's such a wonderful character. We'll be back whenever we come to Franschhoek.
It was our first trip to SA and as luck would have it we'd picked Le Vallon as our base! Of course we all read these reviews and use them as a guide when making choices. Looking through the other reviews it's easy to see why we made our choice and I can certainly confirm that every positive comment made about Mike and Leonora is spot on. However, what impressed us as much as anything was just how much we were made to feel at home and how much trouble they went to to make sure we got to enjoy our first trip to SA. We were given the benefit of their knowledge of the local vineyards and they gave us plenty of information on local events and attractions. I can honestly say that they treated us as though we were family. We will certainly be returning to Le Vallon.
Orchard Cottage is a wonderful cottage - beautiful mountain and vineyard views and exceptional hosts! Mike and Leonora made everything just perfect for our stay. We were here for four weeks and found it very homely. It's actually bigger than it looks in the pictures.
Easy walk into Franschooek village.
