Le Quartier Français is an exclusive family owned and run, boutique, property in the heart of the Franschhoek Wine Valley. Situated in this quaint Winelands town, guests can either relax in the tranquil gardens or walk out of the hotel into the main road with it's array of delightful shops, cafes and galleries. Indulge in wine tasting, horseback riding, chocolate tasting or enjoy a bite at the many eateries within walking distance - a perfect place from which to explore the Winelands.
The refurbished reception area offers a comfortable lounge for guests to meet, pick up a book to read or borrow a DVD from a selection of over 200 DVD's to watch in their rooms. Understanding the modern traveller we offer complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
The essence of Le Quartier is its vibrant decor - fun and locally sourced. All the rooms are fitted with beautiful fabrics and individual artworks, each having its own fireplace and and Nespresso machine. Rooms range from spacious comfortable Auberge rooms to Grande rooms with high ceilings and over sized chairs. The Petite Garden Suites have private courtyards, and the Auberge Suites feature their own gardens with swimming pool. The Four Quarter suites are very large and plush – each with luxuries such as a walk-in wardrobe and fully stocked complimentary bar.
Families are catered for in the Auberge suites offering complimentary loft rooms for children with their own amenities. We treat them like VIK's (very important kids!) and they even get to meet the chef and plan their own menu, what a treat! There are an abundance of activities for kids in the area, and we have babysitting services on request.
Meet the locals in the onsite Boschendal Screening Room, indulge in an African herbal massage in b.gorgeous or just relax in our herb garden or next to the solar heated pool.
