La Petite Dauphine is a picturesque estate set amongst vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards. This historic working fruit and wine farm offers superior luxury accommodation and is a mere 1,7 km from Franschhoek Village, unofficially known as the gourmet capital of South Africa.
The stately driveway, lined with cypresses, white roses and agapanthus leads to the heart of the estate. Here guests will have a choice between the 4 Luxury Suites, 2 Luxury Two Bedroom suites – ideal for families with children, Two Exclusive Villa Suites or a Junior Studio Suite.
All suites are superbly decorated by our in house design studio and offer views over dams, sun kissed orchards, vineyards and the breath-taking Franschhoek Mountains. Artwork found in the manicured gardens add to the charm of the estate.
Nestled under majestic oak trees the café terrace offers a glimpse into refined country life with ponds, vineyards and orchards. The dramatic Franschhoek Mountains form a perfect backdrop to the café setting. Inside Café BonBon terracotta tiles, earthen walls and exposed wood rafters create a charming country feel.
The Studio at La Petite Dauphine is a beautiful conversion from a historical barn. The charm of the original structure has been beautifully restored and brought back to life. The Studio is the perfect location for intimate and romantic wedding and truly special occasions.
Veruska’s Wine Bar, situated across a quaint courtyard from Café BonBon, offers wine tasting for selected Franschhoek Estates. Exposed brick walls, timber shelves laden with bottles of wine and subdued lighting creates a warm ambiance.
