"Relaxing few days at La Petite Ferme"
The staff were all so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much bother for them.
We ate in the restaurant most nights. The food was very nice although a little too fancy - we would have preferred more simple dishes but nevertheless the quality of the food was exceptional. We were staying in the Manor House - previously the owner's private residence. The room was lovely (no. 9 The Bridal Suite) with access to the shared pool and of course the stunning views.
We had read that the Manor House suites were due to be refurbished this year (May 2020) and although the bedroom was very clean and comfortable the bathroom was looking tired and the shower leaked considerably. We mentioned this to Dylan and he immediately had someone address the problem. This wouldn't put us off staying there again as so many other things made up for it and in fact we look forward to returning to enjoy the refurbished rooms in the Manor House. Also, I do hope they will consider a wall mounted mirror somewhere in the room for when drying hair etc. Had to struggle a little but eventually achieved the desired outcome.
All in all a wonderful few days at La Petite Ferme." See all these reviews: 13n in South Africa

"Excellent accommodation at La Petite Ferme"
The absence of a full evening meal combined with the situation on the outskirts can be a disadvantage but there are two restaurants nearby and some of the restaurants in town offer a complimentary taxi service.
Complimentary wine tasting and cellar tour for all guests is on offer. Very helpful, friendly staff.
Fantastic suites overlooking the vineyard and Franschhoek valley." See all these reviews: 34n in South Africa

"La Petite Ferme was beautiful!"
The lunch was delicious.
We were really glad we splashed out on our deluxe suite. The private patio with plungepool and beautiful views was amazing.
I was a bit nervous about trip advisor reviews suggesting that the rooms were abit run-down. But while you could tell it was a little past its best, we weren't disappointed at all." See all these reviews: 10n in South Africa
