Franschhoek Wine Valley

La Cotte Forest Cottages

Eight traditional cottages, each beautifully converted to sleep two to four persons.

Located on the forest edge of one of Franschhoek’s oldest farms, these lavishly simple cottages offer incredible views over the forest, vineyards and valleys. Booked together, they are the ideal setting for large family gatherings and celebrations, or individually for quiet getaways.

The row of deceptively rustic, terraced cottages is made up of five mezzanine cottages, two more spacious two-bedroom cottages and an intimate ‘Sunset’ cottage with its own plunge pool. All cottages have sun-drenched patios, open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas, that overlook an immense swimming pool with a vine-covered, pool-side pavilion. Beautifully decorated with a collection of watercolours, oil paintings, colourful Indian textiles and antique linen cushions, each cottage has its own unique sense of life, adventure and tranquility.
