Our Versailles room was very comfortable. Beautiful bath, lovely linens, and a bed I'd like to ship home! Colin and Annalise are wonderful hosts and make visitors welcome. We were unable to take advantage of all the amenities since our visit was cut short, but we highly recommend Le Petit Paris.

We recently stayed here for five nights and cannot recommend highly enough. What a fabulous place, spotlessly clean and decorated/furnished to the highest standard. Colin & Annelise were great hosts and their three friendly dogs were absolutely adorable! Le Petit Paris is in an ideal location, being a very short stroll from most of Franschhoek's restaurants and shops and the...

We stayed at Le Petit Paris . I cannot rate it highly enough. It was perfect . We were given such a warm welcome by Colin and Annelise. The guest house is spotless and the rooms, pool and food are exquisite . The location perfect for the town and for visiting nearby vineyards. We will definitely return

We had a wonderful time at Le Petit Paris. Received a warm reception from Annelise and Collin, who were also helpful in finding accommodation on an urgent basis for our stranded friends. Beautiful, clean house with tasteful deco. The central location of the guesthouse is ideal, as it allows one to walk into the village. Highly recommended.

The owners and staff were all really friendly and helpful and made our stay even better than expected - Colin is amazing! A beautiful residence with private gated parking and within a stone's throw of the main street but away from the hustle and bustle enough to feel peaceful and idyllic.

Great place - nice big rooms - ours had a lovely view of the mountains through the French doors and in a very convenient location - easy to walk to all the local restaurants and to the bus stops. Definitely book there again if we are in the area

We could not recommend staying here enough. Annelise and Colin are wonderful people with huge hearts who made our stay so warm and friendly. Annelise was amazing at helping us with all the logistics before our arrival to make our stay so smoothly. We were a large family with different requirements. Nothing was difficult for them. Colin treated us like...

We can highly recommend Le Petit Paris Guest House for special weekend away. The guest house was beautiful & reflected elegance and attention to detail. Our hosts Colin and Annelise were warm and welcoming and made us feel very much at home and also provided us with tips on walks, wine farms & places of interest. The breakfast was delicious...
