Winery & Spa Resort of the Week 🍇🥂🍷: Le Quartier Français in Franschhoek, South Africa

Le Quartier Français, a romantic 32-room boutique hotel including two independent villas, is located in the heart of Franschhoek.

All of the rooms and suites at this luxury destination have been refurbished to reflect a sophisticated and fresh colourful palette. The 32 individually styled rooms and suites are luxuriously appointed. Le Quartier Français also showcases a number of important contemporary artworks and sculptures from various countries.

La Petite Colombe was established at Le Quartier Français by the La Colombe team at Silvermist Wine Estate in Constantia. Tasting menus focus on the finest local and seasonal produce, recommended with a rare and fine wine selection. An exciting casual-style eatery at Le Quartier Français, Protégé, offers an experience that the locals can call “home”. The fresh, seasonal menu is based on an à la carte offering where guests are free to select as many or as few courses as they desire.

At sister Franschhoek property, Leeu Estates, French-inspired cuisine at Le chêne (The Oak), under the auspices of multiple award-winning chef Darren Badenhorst, features local produce. Complementing the Leeu Collection in Franschhoek is Tuk Tuk, a craft beer microbrewery in collaboration with the Cape Brewing Company, which serves bespoke brews and Mexican-inspired food.

Take a deep breath, silence the noise of the world, and enter a sanctuary where time stands still at Leeu Spa. Where the rich heritage of the Cape Winelands offers up its fruits, husks, herbs and vines. Where you can relax, rejuvenate and recharge in the midst of the sensory paradise of Leeu Estates, where every detail has been carefully considered to create an experience of total bliss – a safe place for you to let go, surrender yourself to the rhythms of nature and take a journey of healing, restoration and revival with us.

Le Quartier Français is the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding Winelands, or you can simply walk into the village to discover its quaint charms. The extraordinary staff, luxuriously comfortable rooms and attention to detail ensure that this auberge is the ultimate destination.
