Le Quartier Français, Franschhoek, South Africa
Owner run and managed, Le Quartier Français (known locally as LQF) is a delightful 21 room family-friendly retreat which sits in the heart of the French Huguenot village of Franschhoek in the Winelands. Younger guests can meet the chef and design their own menus whilst adults can enjoy award-winning gourmet dining and the chance to ‘live like a local’ for a few days!
Le Quartier Français, Franschhoek
Choose between the charming Auberge Rooms, the striking, larger and more sumptuous Grande Rooms (ideal for honeymooners), the two Petite Garden Suites which look out onto their own secret corner garden or the two exclusive Auberge Suites which each boast their own private walled garden with plunge pool and loft section with a second bathroom for children under 12 years. Teenagers and young grown-ups can enjoy independence at LQF’s adjacent ‘no-frills’ baby sister hotel, ‘Delicious’, where the funky budget rooms are quirkily named Teeny Weeny, Itsy Bitsy and Bigger than a Bikini! Within the grounds of the auberge - there are four stunning 'Four Quarters' Suites set in a separate villa - two upstairs and two downstairs, each overlooking a private courtyard with a pool. Combining luxurious style with impeccable service, guests staying in a Four Quarters Suite enjoy the unobtrusive pampering of a full time butler!
There’s no need to rush out of bed – breakfast is served until 11am in the sunny Garden Room which spills out on to the rambling gardens. In the multi award-winning restaurant, ‘The Tasting Room’, acclaimed chef Margot Janse offers course after course of exquisite culinary delights for serious ‘fine dining’ connoisseurs (bookings and babysitter essential!).
LQF’S Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant, located on the nearby family farm, Moreson, is a firm favourite for a rustic lunchtime experience and what’s more, you can cycle there! It’s an easy downhill 7km ride and LQF will collect you and your bike after lunch (or of course, you can always cycle back too!). If you need a cooling dip, LQF has an outdoor pool and there’s also a Treatment Room where Mums and Dads can be pampered!
