Impossible to fault our stay at Le Petit Paris. Host Colin could not have been more welcoming or helpful, rooms are comfortable and spacious, excellent breakfast, decent wi-fi, convenient parking and a location that's only a short walk (two blocks) from the village's main street. Will definitely look to use again - highly recommended.

We had a great three nights at Le Petit Paris, staying there to attend a friend's wedding nearby. Colin and Annelise are wonderful hosts, having overseen a quality renovation of the building and its grounds. Our room was spotless and so comfortable – and breakfast was delicious. We will definitely visit again if we are lucky enough to have a...

A very easy walk into Franschhoek. Stayed in Marseille Room which was beautifully decorate, spacious and a well designed bathroom. Would suggest moving the fridge from under the window as it spoils the view over the mountain! Balcony overlooks the mountains and pool. Colin was extremely helpful with getting us a restaurant reservation on Valentines Day! The staff were very...

We have traveled to South Africa for the past five years and always like to visit Franschhoek. It is a great place to stay and Le Petit Paris is ideally placed within a short walk of the centre. Very comfortable, large bedrooms a pool and good breakfast, so it ticks all the boxes. Secure parking. Colin is a great host...

Rooms were beautiful spotless and freshly decorated in a beautiful classy French theme. Piped TV with most channels and if you wanted more the relaxing room in the main house had...

Le Petit Paris is located in a quiet street just 3 or 4 minutes walk from the main street. The owners are lovely, helpful people and everything about the place is of high quality. Excellent breakfast choice and a good residents' lounge.

Booked some months ago for a wedding party. The property and the bedrooms are in excellent condition, clean and very well appointed. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating and made every effort including taxi and wine estate bookings. Breakfast was excellent. Only minor gripe would be that our 'honeymoon suite' was very visible in the lower window panes which...

Thank you so much for your constructive comments. We have introduced net curtaining to all windows to partly cover the lower section of windows so as to obscure from the road. With a 270 degree view of the mountains we want to maintain the view above from all angles of the room.

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.
