Sitting on Huguenot Road, the main street of Franschhoek, Le Quartier Francais is perfectly located for exploring the restaurants, galleries and shops of this lovely Cape Dutch town. Most of the guest rooms and suites overlook the tranquil, scented gardens whose swimming pool is surrounded by sun beds for lazy afternoons.
Each room has a fireplace for cooler days and has been decorated with beautiful fabrics and a distinctive colour palette. Some of the suites have their own private garden with a pool.
Protégé is the hotel’s informal dining destination, serving small plates with Asian, French and Italian influences. While La Petite Colombe is the sister restaurant to the world-renowned La Colombe in Constantia. It offers delectable 4-course or 8-course tasting menus, featuring taste sensations such as ravioli of langoustine with curried hake velouté or gochujang glazed pork with scallop, celeriac and horseradish.
Le Quartier Francais belongs to the Leeu Collection, whose founder is a partner in the award-winning Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines, so expect to find some fine wines to pair with your food.
