La Petite Ferme
Franschhoek, South Africa
In a Nutshell:
Situated on the slopes of the Middagrakrans Mountain Range, La Petite Ferme is a beautifully appointed private winery and boutique hotel. This small property has an amazing restaurant and vineyard, and some of the most luxurious suites in the winelands.
EDITOR'S TIP: Spring for one of the six vineyard suites. Each of the rooms has a terrace overlooking the winery with a private plunge pool with a daybed.
The Style: Contemporary decor with a French feel
Why We Love It:
- The Views: The hotel lies five minutes up the Franschhoek Pass Road and overlooks the entire valley below. You’ll want to spend the afternoon sipping wine and enjoying the beautiful views from this property.
- The Staff: Some of the staff we met have been working on the property for over 20 years (even as ownership changed hands) and they were warm, helpful, and proud of their beautiful hotel.
- The Wine: Despite being a small wine producer, the hotel is known for producing wines of exceptional quality. It offers a full range of whites, reds and rosés.
The Unmissable Experience:
Hire a 3-5 hour private tour of winecountry, so you can taste and eat the day away. Make sure to check out Babylonstoren which is a winery, farm, garden, hotel, and restaurant all in one.
