Le Quartier Français is a privately owned boutique hotel and a Relais & Châteaux member, tucked away in the centre of the picturesque village of Franschhoek, where you can safely wander around independently and explore the quaint shops and side streets.
Surrounded by some forty of South Africa’s finest wine estates that represent the essence of the valley’s heritage, the village is dubbed the gourmet capital of the country, with an array of dining choices.
The simple Provençal façade conceals a wonderland behind the walls. Emphasis is on ultimate luxury and romantic charm, combined with the priceless gift of privacy. A variety of uniquely styled en suite rooms and ten luxurious suites overlook the soothing courtyard, garden and pool.
Owner Susan Huxter says “We like to keep things simple, but exceptional and we pride ourselves on our reputation for warm, world class service – and the little touches that make the difference”.
Dining here is a world class culinary experience. The Tasting Room has won a string of awards and consistently been featured in the S.Pellegrino World’s Top 100 restaurants. Chef Margot Janse and her team take advantage of the fresh local ingredients and farmers who”go the extra mile so as to tell stories with African produce and culture”, producing menus that are a ”celebration of South African flavour from start to finish”. So says Eat Out, South Africa’s definitive guide that ranks it within its Top 10 restaurants.
