Le Quartier Francais

Boutique Hotel, Franschhoek


Nestled in the Franschhoek Valley, this boutique hotel really does tick all the luxury hotels boxes. Le Quartier Francais is no stranger to awards what with it being part of the exclusive Leeu Collection of hotels and its restaurant being one of the top restaurants in south Africa year after year.

However, even with this notoriety, the luxury hotel does well to share an air of sophistication and opulence without being pretentious. Surrounded by vineyards means that it is tucked away from the rest of the town of Franschhoek but smiled upon by the gorgeous mountain ranges that surround this verdant valley.

For 20 years, Le Quartier Francais has been the luxury accommodation of choice for travelers in search of that certain attention to detail that really makes South African holidays that extra bit extra-ordinary.


Guests can choose from 21 suites and rooms at Le Quartier Francais. Each of these is styled with a feast for both the eyes and body in mind. From the grand Four Quarters suites with their private courtyard, walk in closets and generous 110 square foot size, to the more humble, but no less luxurious Auberge rooms.

The different corners of this well-appointed boutique hotel allow guests to choose from a garden, poolside, courtyard or main house accommodation – really ensuring that the tastes of every discerning traveler are met.


Le quartier isn’t only an oasis for travelers; its also the food capital of Franschhoek. Its main restaurant, The Tasting Room is world-renowned and no stay at this hotel would be complete without savouring the 8-course African-inspired tasting menu artfully designed by chef Margot Janse.

The other restaurant on the property is the Living Room where guests can enjoy breakfast every morning as well light meals. However, if you need a break from the finest food this side of Table Mountain, then guests can relax by the swimming pool with a book from the library in one hand and drink from the bar in the other, work out at the gym or enjoy indulgent treatments at the spa.
