Le Quartier Français embodies all that Franschhoek aspires to: sophisticated country living with a veneer of modesty. Topping the charts year after year, this enterprising little hotel works hard to infuse new ideas with traditional, back-to-basics simplicity. Bold colours sit cubist-like astride restored garage-sale furniture and polished wood finishes. The hotel's rooms are large and effervescent with kindergarten fabrics beneath exposed beams and wooden furniture – the usual amenities apply only they are better than most usual amenities.
Part with some extra boodle and you’ll be the proud resident of a four quarter suite, where the luxury accommodation never stops and the service never ends. Private butler, personal pool, in-room spa treatments, complimentary mini-bar and a chef-on-demand have all been bundled into four suites opening onto a courtyard and pool.
Le Quartier Français – Tasting Room and Living Room
Le Quartier Français has two restaurants under the inimitable force of the much lauded executive chef, Margot Janse. The Living Room is Franschhoek's local grazing ground; the place to relax and linger with friends over a tasty dish or two and the Tasting Room is the flagship restaurant with banquet-style courses and fine wines paired to perfection.
