We stayed 2 nughts recently in one of the lovely cottages on the farm. The cottages are all private and have their own garden space. The cottages are surrounded by the working vineyard. We enjoyed a Braai on the veranda the first night and walked into Franschhoek for dinner in a lovely restaurant the second night. The comfortable and large...

My husband and I spent a couple of days in Franschhoek at the end of our month's holiday in South Africa, February 2017. Rather than stay at one of the more well known or larger establishments there, we had booked to stay at Bo La Motte Cottages. The cottages may not be to everyone's taste, but we had a wonderful...

We stayed for a week at the Pump House and had a wonderfully relaxing stay, loving the views from the window and the peaceful location (dogs barking, cocks crowing and frogs croaking don’t count, they go with the territory). A wonderfully comfortable bed and a welcoming stove on chilly evenings made Bo La Motte a wonderful base for exploring –...

BoLaMotte, General Manager at Bo La Motte Farm Cottages, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your review and great suggestions. Yes, when the cocks start crowing and you hear the crickets and the frogs, you know you are on a farm. Happy that you did not mind the dogs. We will definitely take your suggestions about the lamp and pictures on the wall into consideration - thank you for that....

An amazing place to stay. The farm is a gentle place surrounded by fabulous mountains with fabulous walks around the dams (lakes) accompanied by one of their handsome farm dogs....4 German Shepherds and a beautifully gentle Rhodesian Ridgeback. 15 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive from delightful Franschhoek where the food is pure delight among the many restaurants and bistros....

Thank you so much. It was wonderful meeting you and we really hope that we will be able to accommodate you again when you visit South Africa. The dogs also loved having you next door to them.

The cottages are back to basics with all basic facilities at hand for a comfi stay. There is no contact with anyone. You get your key and off you go.. spacious cottages, basic decoration and maintenance. Perfect for a quiet stay. Questions about your stay with regards to where to organize breakfast, a braai or whatsoever are unfortunately ignored. No...

We hired Goose Cottage for 3 nights. It has 2 bedrooms which are effectively ensuite so perfect for 2 couples. Nicely appointed with real character in a superb setting in the middle of a vineyard. A short walk into the village and when you tire of eating out the self catering with a braid looking at the sun set over...

Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay on the farm. I agree - if you love open spaces with a view of the mountains - Goose cottage the perfect choice. We hope that you will come back soon (and that you will try out the swimming pool next time).

We were two couples sharing Owl Cottage for four nights at the end of January. The cottage was a delight - beautifully furnished and equipped with comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We thoroughly recommend it. But please do something about the signage to find the cottages! We had no idea where to go.

We stayed at Milkwood Cottage. It is surrounded by vineyards with fabulous views of the mountains. The cottage is spacious and comfortable. There is a very pleasant area outside the property for eating, sitting or sunbathing. The property is exceptionally quiet and private.

Most beautiful setting with views over the mountains. A real hidden gem close to town. From booking through to departure the staff was excellent! We stayed as a family and the cottage was fabulous with everything we needed. We stayed in summer and will definately be back in winter to make use of the fireplace.

We are looking forward to winter so that we can welcome you back on the farm. See you soon!
