Since opening its doors in 1984 La Petite Ferme has cemented its reputation as one of the most sought-after destinations in the Cape winelands.

Perched high on the Franschhoek Pass, in the shadow of the Middagkrans mountains and boasting remarkable views of the valley below, La Petite Ferme is today a refined country escape that has seen the ebb and flow of food trends, retained loyal customers through the decades, and attracted a new generation of gourmands with its authentic country cuisine and warm hospitality. Today La Petite Ferme boasts  a boutique hotel, acclaimed country restaurant and celebrated winery.

The boutique hotel at La Petite Ferme is certainly an excellent example of country elegance and hospitality and offers nine unique rooms, each boasting panoramic views of the Franschhoek valley and surrounding winelands.

True to La Petite Ferme’s farming roots, the talented team of chefs at the restaurant also bring a renewed focus on working with local producers. That could mean fresh trout from local waters, goat’s cheese from a winelands dairy or organic heirloom carrots from a nearby farm.


The views from La Petite Ferme are obviously superb, but we work extremely hard to ensure that the food and hospitality are as memorable as the location,” says Riaan Kruger, General Manager of La Petite Ferme. “Service is what we do, but hospitality is how we make people feel.”
