I would absolutely recommend staying there. The only issue we had was that we were woekn up in the middle of...

Chestnut cottage was absolutely divine - set away from the other two cottages, buried in the vineyards, overlooking a stream, beautifully designed, well-equipped and two private verandahs of our own. We were reluctant to leave and do the obligatory exploring as it was so pleasant. We will definately be back!

Our family really enjoyed our time at La Chataigne - it was our favorite spot throughout our time in South Africa. The cottage was simple, but elegant and beautifully designed. The kitchen was adequate and spacious two bedrooms (and bathrooms) perfect for our family of four. We had world class meals at nearby wineries, and our daughters loved all the...

We loved our stay. The cottage was gorgeous, the scenery and location perfect for exploring the area of Stellenbosch and nearby Franschhoek. Such a short trip from Cape Town but it was so peaceful and quiet and we had a really relaxing time by the pool when we weren't out exploring.

The perfect location to discover this beautiful wine area, Franschhoek with its great shopping and gourmet centre - or just to chill out! The Châtaigne welcome by Suzaan was efficient and helpful, our cottage a perfectly appointed home from home, tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped, the swimming pool a perfect gem. What more could we wish for? The excellent wines...

If I come back to wine country I will stay here again! These quaint cottages were extremely private and absolutely lovely. They were the perfect distance off the main road so they felt secluded but accessible. The cottage had everything we needed to feel comfortable and the hosts were extremely helpful and accommodating.

We stayed in the Kastanje Cottage which we liked a lot. It was clean, nicely furnished and had a very comfortable bed. The location was quiet but only a seven minute drive away from Franschhoek village. If coming from Paarl or Stellenbosch one could avoid the traffic through Franschhoek. We only wish the bedroom windows would have had bars so...

We stayed in the Chestnut cottage, a cottage for two. It is a very clean and comfortable cottage. The stream flows past it and the stoep is a great braai place. Everything you need is there and the personnel were very friendly and helpful. We want to return in winter to light up the indoor fireplace! Romance 101
