The Experience

Le Quartier Francais

 An exclusive property in the heart of the Franschhoek Wine Valley. Situated in this quaint Winelands town, guests can either relax in the tranquil gardens or walk out of the hotel into the main road with it’s array of delightful shops and galleries. Indulge in winetasting; horseback riding; chocolate tasting or enjoy a bite at the many eateries within walking distance; a perfect place from which to explore the Winelands.

The newly refurbished reception area offers a comfortable lounge area for guests to meet; pick up a book to read or borrow a DVD from a selection of over 200 DVD’s to watch in their rooms.

The essence of Le Quartier is its vibrant decor – fun and locally sourced. With 5 room types, it offers spacious comfortable Auberge rooms to Grande rooms with high ceilings and over sized chairs. Then there are the Petite Garden Suites with their private courtyards leading up to the Auberge Suites that feature their own gardens with swimming pools and then the extra large Four Quarters suites, which leave nothing to be desired. Once you have checked in you won’t want to leave! Understanding the modern traveller we offer complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and complimentary bars & snacks in our suites, along with other sought after amenities.

Families are catered for in the Auberge suites offering complimentary loft rooms for children with their own amenities; we treat them like VIK’s ( very important kids)! They even get to meet the chef and plan their own menu, what a treat! There are an abundance of activities for kids in the area.

Le Quartier is a gourmet destination that surpasses expectations. Home to two great restaurants, the Award Winning Tasting Room,

(having featured for many years in the top 50 in the world) South Africa’s most lauded fine-dining restaurant and the Living Room.

The Tasting Room is the stage to Chef Margot Janse‘s unique African Inspired Surprise Tasting Menu. In the eclectic newly furbished setting, serious diners have the oppertunity to experience a menu that continues to evolve and astonish the biggest critics. Every dish is exceptional and engaging, truly refined with a distinct feminine touch and, at the same time, unexceptedly exciting… exhilirating in fact. Open for dinners, Tuesday to Saturday.

In the Living Room, diners can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack or two as well as the best strawberry daiquiris in town. Here the menu is packed full of lip smacking delights designed to serve as small bites or the building blocks of a more substantial meal. You’ll find yourself spoilt for choice! The decor is plush without being overwhelming and supremely comfortable. The Living Room combines the best ingredients, in its menu and decor, adding depth and humour to the experience.

On the family vineyard in the valley Bread & Wine restaurant allows you to enjoy lingering lunches; here Neil Jewell – Executive Head Chef and South African Charcuterie King- prepares the most delectable dishes using only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

To further entice, we have extra-ordinary tailormade experiences allowing guests to discover what Franschhoek has to offer and special interactions that will create everlasting memories. From understanding art, cycling in the mountains or just indulging in some me time, we have something for everyone. A morning can be spend giving back to Isabelo- sharing is caring- project where we feed 100 preschool children a day.

Meet the locals in the onsite Screening Room (the only movie house in town) featuring some of the latest movies, indulge in an African herbal massage in B.Gorgeous or just relax next to the solar heated pools.

It is the extra- ordinary staff; the opulently comfortable rooms and the attention to detail that ensure that this Auberge is the ultimate spoiling. It is waiting just for you.
