We loved our stay at Le Petit Paris. What a beautiful renovation with lovely furniture and rooms. Wish we had upgraded! Breakfast was a feast and the pool a welcome refrshment at the end of a day wine tasting (all very nearby) Colin and Annalise were so helpful with recommendations and suggestions.

Colin & Annalise were lovely and helped us out loads with places to go and tips on what do with our travels onwards. We wished we could have stayed longer, but the time we had in Franschhoek was amazing partly down to our hosts/accommodation. The room itself was amazing and we would have stolen the robes if we had space...

Colin and Annelise have transformed this guest house. The rooms are beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated - and, importantly, they are very comfortable indeed. Ours was a fleeting one night stay rounded off with a superb breakfast. We have already booked a longer stay next year.
