About La Galiniere Guest Cottages

La Galiniere Guest Cottages are located on a secluded boutique vineyard in the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, just 15 minutes’ walk to the centre of town. The 2 AA Highly Recommended, 3-star self-catering cottages provide comfortable, relaxing and affordable accommodation suitable for an overnight or longer stay. Recently refurbished, high quality fittings and furnishings are used throughout each cottage to provide that home away from home environment.

Each cottage has a well-equipped kitchen/kitchenette with oven/hob, fridge-freezer, microwave, TV with wide range of movie and sports channels, DVD player, quality cotton linen and towels, complimentary tea & coffee, fan heaters and cooling fans, universal plug adapters, and hairdryers.

We pay attention to the little details, so there will be milk in the fridge, complimentary toiletries in the bathroom, and a bottle of wine from the farm's own vines waiting for you when you arrive. Both cottages provide a choice of king or twin beds in each room. Living rooms have fireplaces for those chilly nights.

We are also family friendly, leave the cot and high chair at home, we have them here along with kiddie DVDs. Babysitting can be arranged with advance notice and with an additional charge.

The two cottages share their own swimming pool, sun loungers and braai area. Secure off-street parking is provided. Early check-ins and late check-outs are usually possible during the off-peak season.

As owners of a local travel company, you can also rely on us to organise tours, transfers, car hire, and other services. Just ask us for further details.

Family friendly: La Galiniere Guest Cottages welcomes children of all ages. We are able to provide travel cots, high chairs, baby/child car seats and kiddie DVDs.

Romantic: With our stunning setting in the Franschhoek Valley, with views of the vines and mountains, many guests have chosen us for their wedding night, honeymoon or anniversary.

My wife and I are from South Africa and enjoy exploring locally. This is by far the best equipped and spacious self-catering facilities we have experienced to date. We enjoyed the DSTV and wi-fi and built a fire in the fireplace every night. Franschoek is a beautiful little village and we hope to visit again. The manageress, Rita, is a friendly, well spoken and gracious hostess and made us feel welcome.

The Merlot cottage was great.......altho 2 bathrooms would be much better......4 women and 1 bathroom is a challange.The location is superb....the pool area inviting.Better lighting in the living room area needs a bit of help.....just bright overhead lights.....needs some lamps on tables by the sofas.The staff was great, very helpful.

Blocked shower which lead to a flooded bathroom, which was resolved the next day. We didn't have any outside area. But they had a lovely veggie garden to which we were invited to help ourselves to.
