We loved staying at Le Petit Paris. Perfect location, amazing rooms, exceptional hospitality and lovely breakfast! (try the omelette, their speciality) We will definitely be back, thanks to Colin and Annelise for making our stay so memorable.

Nicely situated guest house (just 2 blocks back from the main street) with superb large rooms, comfortable beds and well equipped bathroom. The owners are very welcoming and keen to pass on local tips for eating, drinking and sight seeing. All restaurants are within walking distance and there's a secure free car park just around the corner.

We had a great stay with Colin and his team in Franschoek. We were recommended some great Vineyards and fabulous restaurants by Colin. The breakfast was a delight and one of the best during my whole stay in SA.

The owners, one of whom traces ancestry back to first Huguenots to sail to South Africa, have done an outstanding job renovating this first rate accommodation. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and well designed and furnished. And, don't overlook that each room has individual...

Le Petit Paris is one of the best places to stay. The staff and owners are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We loved the upstairs superior king room. The breakfast is excellent. A short walking into town for shopping and restaurants.

We had a wonderful two night stay at Le Petit Paris.The rooms are practically brand new, with comfy beds, enormous bathrooms and gorgeous furnishings. We spent some time by the lovely pool, enjoyed a glass of wine in the lounge and thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts. The location is perfect - a close walk to town but a few blocks off...
