One of our top stays in South Africa!
Beautiful Rooms and Amazing Hospitality from the owner and staff. This place was amazing and a highlight of our Honeymoon in South Africa. We only wish we had found it sooner and been able to stay longer. The front desk called and arranged for a beautiful dinner down the road at La Petit Manoir and treated us to a glass of wine. Delicious breakfast in the morning.

Fabulous Franschhoek stay
Cecilia & Kim are gracious hosts who went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Located one block off the main road it is within easy walking distance to first class shops and restaurants as well as close to memorable wineries. Rooms are large, beautifully decorated. Breakfast is excellent. The living room is a wonderful way to socialize with other guests. We would stay there again.

A gem in Franschhoek
I can't recommend La fontaine highly enough. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly - absolutely nothing was too much trouble - booking restaurants and arranging taxis for us, drinks by the pool etc. The interior decor was beautiful - it is very obvious that a huge amount of thought has been put into making this such a special place.

An ideal place to stay.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at La Fontaine. The location was excellent and you can walk to the Main Street in a couple of minutes where you will find an array of restaurants and bars. The staff were really helpful, the rooms are clean and extremely comfortable and the two pool areas are a nice place to relax. Breakfast on the patio was a great way to start the day. There is also parking.
