We stayed one night in February which was sadly too short a stay and we wished we had stayed longer. Colin could not have been more accommodating giving us valuable advice on the Vineyards. We were able to walk to the Wine Tram and have a great day without the worry of driving. We will certainly be coming back and...

Sadly we only stayed for one night at Le Petit Paris, but it is a great 'value for money' option in a superb location. Colin and Annalise were fabulous hosts that really made us feel welcome and the room we stayed in was charming. Would definitely recommend.

Loved everything about this guest house, we travelled for one month and stayed in nine different locations and this was definitely in the top three. Lovely tastefully decorated, spacious rooms including peaceful outdoor spaces to sit and read. Incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Perfect location within walking distance to shops and superb restaurants. Secure private parking.

This is a lovely bed and breakfast - very well run by Colin right in the centre of town. The rooms are large, all with pretty views and excellent bathrooms and linen. Breakfast was very good too. Everything you could want in a place to stay.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Nov-16. The owner/host, Colin, was incredibly helpful with recommendations for Franschhoek and broader SA. He was also kind enough to offer us lifts to and from local restaurants. Location was perfect and the accommodation was just what we needed. Would definitely go back!

We spent three nights in Franschhoek and really loved staying at Le Petit Paris. It's very clean and beautiful and the hosts will help you with everything you might need. Eating in Franschhoek is something special.

We spent 4 nights with Annelise and Colin at Le Petit Paris, absolutely perfect, the website pictures don't do it justice. Wonderful place to stay just a couple of minutes from the Main Street. If you are planning a trip to Franschhoek don't look anywhere else, you won't be disappointed!!

Nice rooms. Good breakfast and nice garden with a small pool and sunchairs. 2 blocks of Main street. The hosts was very helpfull and helårs us to book all the activities incl winetrain and restaurants. The only complaint would be that the TV decoder never worked ( miss the News!)

Thank you for your wonderful review and feedback, very helpful. Sorry about the TV, please just shout next time and we will reset the room decoder for you, sometimes switched off by guests. All channels are available in all rooms.

We cannot recommend it enough. Colin and Annelise were extremely helpful and nice people (along with all the other staff). Rooms were clean and spacious. The pool is lovely. Breakfast was fantastic. Great value for money! We will definitely be returning on our next visit.
