In the humble village of Franschhoek in the Cape Wineland’s French Huguenot valley, you’ll find the exquisite Le Quartier Français, a privately owned auberge with its finger on the pulse when it comes to the more delightful side of living. Everything this close-knit team strives for, emphasises luxury and promotes the everlasting allure of romance. The awards that rain on the property are testament to their ongoing commitment to provide a personal, yet private getaway for discerning travellers.

The array of accommodation on offer at Le Quartier Français is sublime. In the main auberge there are fifteen en-suite bedrooms surrounding the central courtyard garden and gated swimming pool. Each spacious room is individually decorated in vibrant colours and Designers guild patterns and offers the comfort of home with delightful daily surprises.

There are also two suites, each with their own walled garden, plunge pool and child-friendly loft room. The Four Quarters Suites adjacent to the main auberge gardens boasts four sumptuous suites, overlooking a private paved courtyard and lap pool. Each suite is brightly decorated with imaginative textures, fabrics and colours and features all the latest mod-cons from iPod docking stations to over-sized flat screen televisions and a DVD library. A butler is on hand at all times to ensure personal service and meals can be arranged.

The Cottage, situated across the road from Le Quartier Français is a more family friendly option. The Cottage is designed as a base for a more lengthily stay. This exquisite destination provides the opportunity for guests to experience and explore Franschhoek on a more intimate level. Two en-suite bedrooms, one twin bedded and one king, open up onto a walled garden and a private swimming pool. Two lounges with fireplaces and a fully equipped Kitchen give The Cottage a warm homely feel.

Dining at Le Quartier Français is a truly heavenly experience. Sample the excellence of fine dining in The Tasting Room; voted among ‘The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants’, five years running (2005-2009) by Restaurant Magazine UK, or relax in the café style restaurant, iCi which serves breakfast, lunch, casual dinners and anything in between. Guests of Le Quartier Français are continually the envy of the region.

If you haven’t guessed it, Franschhoek is the “Gourmet capital of South Africa.” It’s dappled with wonderful cafés and restaurants, and some of the world’s best wineries. Enjoy the local hiking trails, or rent a bicycle to enjoy some of the verdant vineyards. The area is also home to two challenging golf courses: the Paarl Valley and Paarl Golf Club.

Back at the auberge, you’re welcome to relax in The Screening Room; a comfortable modern cinema showing old time classics and cinema nouveau movies complete with local wine and tasty savouries. Elsewhere, indulge yourself in the Decleor treatments of The Treatment Room, a sensuous spa offering a full range of treatments. Finally, gaze in wonder at the stylish offerings of the boutique store, Touches & Tastes, which Tatler Magazine UK claims to be: “The best hotel shop anywhere.”

It’s this level of consistent high praise which keeps the Le Quartier Français at the cutting edge of elegance, a leader in luxurious independent accommodation, and a destination at the crest of romantic ideas.
