Franschhoek Wine Valley

La Chataigne

Come and enjoy a few days or more in this wonderful part of the South African Winelands, just an hour’s drive from Cape Town. Our cottages, located on a working wine farm surrounded by majestic mountains, are the perfect place to relax and get away from it all.

Guests have a choice of three contemporary and spacious cottages set along the Franschhoek River.

The three cottages offer new, modern amenities, with en suite bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens, and there are terraces on both sides of each cottage, lending themselves to comfortable indoor and outdoor living with braai (barbeque) facilities. To cool off on those hot summer days, there is an enticing swimming pool in the nearby pear orchard.

The cottages are private and peaceful, yet conveniently close to other Franschhoek wine estates and Franschhoek Village with its famous restaurants, great gift shops, art galleries, museums, farmer’s market and the buzz of activities in the village.
