La Chaumiere 1863 - Exclusive Living in historic Cape Dutch House
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Beautiful, retreat-like house that served our working group very well.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of colleagues (and one 5 year old) had a lovely stay in a stunning home with a spectacular garden and views. It is very close to all that Franschhoek has to offer. We couldn't figure out how to use the cook top at first so dinner was significantly delayed, but we finally got the hang of it. The house is equipped with very fine amenities.
