We stayed for five nights and were very impressed. The cottage is very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Marlicia the owner is delightful and extremely helpful. There are lots of little touches such as cookies, fresh milk, wine and a box of all kinds of bits and pieces in case you've forgotten anything. The cottage is an easy ten mins walk to the centre. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return. Thank you.

“Absolutely Perfect”

We stayed here for a fortnight and absolutely loved Petit Plaisir. The owners couldnt do enough and we found the place immaculately kept and well presented. A perfect place to explore the winelands.

“Home away from home - even better!”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2013

a Beautifully decorated cottage, catering for all our needs. Marlicia went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible - even booked us a dinner seating at one of the best restaurants and helped me arrange flowers for my wife. Wow, amazing. Situated in the heart of Feanschhoek, close to everything. What more can you ask for. Will definitely go back.

“Very Enjoyable and intime.”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2013

The accommodation is very comfortable, very clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. The owners are very hospitable and quite accommodating. Marlicia was very helpful in making reservations for us in local restaurants. The Wi Fi, however, at the cottage never worked, although we were welcome to use the owner's computer and to american standards, the bathroom was a little cramped. We would highly recommend Petit Plaisir, if you are independent, enjoy self catering with a local flare. It is a home away from home.

Response from the owner Thank you for the review. Because of thurder storms the signal in the cottage was down, but it's working again. Sorry for the inconvenience. Kind regards, Marlicia

“Wonderful weekend break.”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2013

The owner (Marlicia) attended to every possible detail to welcome us and make us feel pampered. The attention to detail for a self catering unit shows this exceptionally high level of care. This includes the niceties such as fresh flowers, chocolates, sherry, wine, bath goodies and even personal emergency supplies. The beautifully presented cottage was spotless. The short notice to help out with laundry even though the owner was feeling unwell was attended to cheerfully and efficiently. We were so impressed and of course will highly recommend this delightful cottage to our friends.

“Tranquil, sophisticated and romantic”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2013

This is absolutely one of the nicest guest houses in which I have ever stayed...everything is top of the line! It is part of a secured estate so you feel safe but still have a freestanding new structure with marble bath with a wonderful huge soaking tub, premier linens, wine and chocolate as welcome gifts, stainless appliances and the charm you would hope for at Franschoek. It is easy walking distance to the wonderful restaurants. Marlicia was a wonderful host---made recommendations and reservations for us...we truly felt pampered. If we are lucky enough to go back to Franschoek, we know that we will stay here again.

“spoilt, pampered + looked after like royalty !”

Can't recommend Petit Plaisir highly enough. Everything is provided for you from fresh fruit, fabulous home-made rusks + flapjacks down to tea, coffee, toilet rolls, washing up liquid, you name it it's there ! Marlicia + Luis are the hostesses with the mostest + you even get little Zulu the jack russell to keep you company if you're missing your pets at home. Its spotlessley clean + the simple furnishings are homely + comfy. Beautiful sheets + towels regularly replaced + all the utensils you ever need in the kitchen. Its in a fabulous location, peaceful yet within 5mins walk to the centre of Franshoek + all the bars + restaurants. We stayed for 2 weeks + loved every minute + came home totally refreshed + relaxed. 1st class !

“Beautiful place to stay with amazing owners”

Reviewed 12 Mar 2013

Stayed here after recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed. We are a young couple with a small baby and the owners made us feel very welcome, provide a cot, booked some restaurants for us, recommended places to stay formthe rest of our trip and even provide babysitting services. I couldn't recommend this place more.

“Beautiful, immaculate cottage - perfect for a romantic break”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2012

Lovely house with everything we needed and more. Lots of lovely little touches to make it feel even more special. Marlicia, the owner is wonderful - so kind and attentive but without being overbearing in anyway. We had a 3 week holiday in South africa and this was our favourite accomodation overall.

Response from the owner Dear Lucy Thank you for the wonderful review. I enjoyed having you too. Kind regards, Marlicia

“Wonderfully relaxing”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2012

Marlicia is the ultimate hostess, a warm and friendly lady, we were welcomed with open arms and pampered for the duration of our stay. The cottage is very well appointed and comfortable. What more can one say about Franschhoek? The place to get to. We had no complaints.
