The breathtakingly beautiful Franschhoek valley, Cape Winelands; is renowned as one of the world’s great food and wine destinations.

Le Quartier Français is the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding Winelands, or you can simply walk into the village to discover its quaint charms. The extraordinary staff, luxuriously comfortable rooms and attention to detail ensure that this auberge is the ultimate destination.
