Lovely, well managed place, just behind the Huguenot memorial at one end of the main street, so easy to walk into town during the day. Only 7 units of accommodation so this small luxury guest house is run on a very personal basis with the efficient managers (Gary and Ellen) getting to know all the guests straight away. Breakfast was...

Wow wow wow !!! As said above - La Providence Franshoek is better than most 5star hotels! By far the best place weve stayed there! Beautifully and stylishly appointed throughout! Your hosts Ellen and Gary are amazing! We know Franshoek well so didn't have to avail ourselves of their wealth of knowledge! Great "Honesty Bar" and a fabulous breakfast! Very...

What a wonderful place. Outstanding in every aspect. When you enter through the big gates, you just know you have picked the right place for your vacation. Unfortunately Ellen had to leave on urgent business, but Gary was a wonderful host. Easy going guy, and nothing was too much trouble. Gorgeous surroundings, and obviously has a great crew to help...

Entering the gates of La Providence we were amazed by the beauty of the gardens and the surrounding area. Ellen,Gary and all the staff were wonderful, friendly, welcoming and so helpful. We particularly loved the pool area and bar, enjoying our early evening glass of wine admiring the peace and serenity of the fantastic scenery. Breakfast deserves a special mention...

On arriving at the guest house on the edge of Franschhoek we loved the tree lined drive, immaculate gardens and pristeen buildings. We stayed in the Gentlemans room on the first floor of one of the buildings making up the complex. The room was very spacious with plenty of storage, large comfortable bed and excellent bathroom with large walk in...

After six nights it was hard for us to leave this beautiful place. It was perfect from the beginning on. We had the Balcony Room which is a spacious and beautiful furnished room. The surrounding is beautifull and pitoresque and 'La Provicence' a perfect place to relax. Special Thanks to Ellen and Gary who are always very supportive and warm-hearted....

We just got home in England but reflect on our wonderful three night stay at La Providence. Our luxury room had a small private pool which we shared with next door but was paradise . The breakfasts were the best ever we have had after many years of travelling on cruises and hotels. The is just nowhere as wonderfully friendly...

The grounds with it's own fountain , duck pond , vineyard , fire pit and infinity pool are immaculately kept , with beautiful views of the valley...

Situated a 10 minute walk outside the main street in Franschhoek, surrounded by the owners vineyard, this is a lovely retreat to stay at. Rooms and bathrooms are huge and in various converted buildings around the main manor house. We had a large terrace, perfect for relaxing on before dinner in town. The focus is the bar, breakfast room and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated behind the historical Huguenot Monument and Museum, and within 5 minute walking distance from the town center. Laying beneath the impressive Middagkrans Mountains, and a short drive up the Franschhoek pass to one of the most surreal views of the town and valley, is La Providence Farm/Guesthouse! Set amongst a picturesque garden of roses and other indigenous plant, a hectare of vineyards and a Cypress avenue, as you enter the farm. The farm consists of 7 guestrooms, with a very modern and sophisticated interior. The old farm house buildings gives you a sense of time gone by. Each room has its own Nescafe coffee machine, a mini fridge where one can sit on your terrace and enjoy a glass of wine in the afternoon as the sunsets!! There is an entertainment area for our guests, a short walk from the rooms where one can enjoy a swim in our 12m pool, or laze about on a sunbed and admire the view of the mountains or vineyard. There is a bar with a wooden deck leading out to the pool, or in the evening sit in boma around a fire and enjoy the Milk way with a glass of 'Lewenslust' our local house wine. ... more   less
