Le Quartier Francais embodies all that Franschhoek aspires to: country living with oh-so-understated sophistication. Topping the charts year after year, this enterprising little hotel works hard to infuse new ideas with traditional, back-to-basics simplicity.

Bold colours sit cubist-like astride restored garage sale furniture and polished wood finishes. The whole is like a breezy summer’s day in the south of France. Rooms are large and effervescent with kindergarten fabrics beneath exposed beams and wood furniture. The usual amenities apply, only they are better than most usual amenities.

Le Quartier Francais has a trio of restaurants under the inimitable force of the much lauded five-star chef, Margot Janse. ici is an upbeat French café that opens onto the street serving what some might call comfort food. Bread & Wine is a stand-alone restaurant in the Môreson wine estate offering platters of home-cured meats and freshly baked bread to the slosh of a glass or two. Lastly, the Tasting Room is the flagship restaurant with banquet-style courses and fine wines paired to perfection.

Part with some extra boodle and you’ll be the proud resident of a suite, where the luxury never stops and the service never ends. Private butler, personal pool, in-room spa treatments, complimentary mini-bar and a chef on demand have all been bundled into four suites opening onto a courtyard and pool.
