Le Quartier Francais Location Map

Set in perfumed gardens with mountain views, Le Quartier Francais (the French Quarter) is a romantic boutique hotel situated in the very centre of  Franschhoek, in the heart of the Cape Winelands. The emphasis is on ultimate luxury and charm, combined with the priceless gift of privacy.

Peaceful scented gardens with strategically placed sculptures and a 10m swimming pool provide a relaxing area for guests to enjoy after exploring the surrounding Winelands. The hotel also offers complimentary bicycle hire for those wishing to explore and get fit at the same time.

La Petite Colombe Restaurant was established at Le Quartier Français by the La Colombe team at Silvermist Wine Estate in Constantia. The Franschhoek  kitchen offers tasting menus which focus on the finest local and seasonal produce and paired with a rare and fine wine selection. An exciting casual-style eatery at Le Quartier Français, Protégé, recognises talented young chefs and provides them with an opportunity to put themselves on the map. The fresh, seasonal menu is based on an à la carte offering where diners are free to select as many or as few courses as they desire.

The sophisticated suites and rooms are located in the gardens and feature the ultimate in luxury fittings, fabrics and finishes complemented by artworks by local artists. Each room category features something special.

The Auberge Rooms boast extra spacious seating areas and spectacular views of either the central courtyard and the swimming pool or the surrounding mountains. All feature en-suite bathrooms with both slipper baths and walk-in showers. The generous double-volume Grande Rooms are 50 square meters in size and have contemporary styled bathrooms.

The Petite Garden Suites look out onto their own secret corner garden, and the Pool and House Suites boast 80 square metres of space plus their own private walled garden and secluded pool. Each of the 110 square metre sumptuously decorated Four Quarters Suites are set around a private courtyard.

Finally there is a 3 bedroomed and a 4 bedroomed LQF Villa, each with their own private pool and full kitchen. The villas are both close to the bustling main street and provide a home away from home from which to explore the village and its many attractions.

Start TestimonialI was so sad we only got to stay at Le Quartier Francis 2 nights. I could have moved in there - the staff was great, breakfast was out of this world, and the entire place was one of the most charming places I have ever been.End Testimonial
