Le Quartier Français is a small, privately owned country inn situated in the heart of the historic village of Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands.

Franschhoek (meaning 'French Corner') was settled by French Huguenots in the 17th century, and Le Quartier Français reflects that heritage with its Cape Provençal buildings.

The rooms are set around a rose-filled central courtyard, plus two luxurious suites with private pools. In addition, the Four Quarters offers four suites with an extra level of luxury, including a butler service.

Le Quartier Français is especially renowned for its multi-award-winning restaurant, which has been described as serving 'some of the best food on the planet'. Chef Margot Janse is consistently rated amongst the very best in South Africa. There is a swimming pool in the landscaped gardens, and a mini-cinema where guests can watch classic films and the latest releases from the comfort of armchairs, with a glass of wine in hand. Beauty treatments are available at the Treatment Room, and a wide variety of activities are on offer locally, including golf, mountain biking, hiking, horse riding, and paragliding.
