La Cotte Farm


Farmhouse chic

La Cotte Farm’s history is apparent in its beautiful mix of Cape Dutch, Victorian and Georgian architecture. Whilst the interiors are heavenly, its fantastic location walking distance from anywhere in the village is also part of its attraction.

Make yourself at home in this colourfully stylish farm, where whitewashed walls complement bright sprays of bougainvillea and walls are covered in murals and lovingly displayed water colours. Which ever room you’re in, you know it will be filled with light as the outside spills in through every window and views stretch over the gardens and beyond.

There is a pool for the hot days, and log burners for the cold ones. Explore the shops and eateries of Franschhoek village on foot, knowing that you can retreat to the welcoming calm of La Cotte.
