About Bo La Motte Farm
At the foot of the Middagkrans mountain and only a ten-minute walk from the beautiful village of Franschhoek, lies Bo La Motte Farm, one of the nine historic Huguenot wine farms settled in 1672.
The farm has recently been returned to its 'Wine Farm' origins with the newly planted vines soon to produce the first harvest which will be processed in the restored wine cellar. Only ten minutes walk from Franschhoek village, the gourmet centre of South Africa, Bo La Motte Wine Farm has four beautifully furnished self-catering cottages, all in their own unique settings around the farm.
Each cottage has its own idyllic setting, either nestled amongst the vines or overlooking the dams. They are furnished to a high standard and have complete kitchens fully equipped for self-catering. The lounges have large comfy sofas, TV, DVD and open fire places for the cooler winter evenings whilst the bedrooms are either of a twin or double bed configuration.
Each cottage has both bath and shower facilities and all towels and linen required for use in the cottages, is provided. All cottages have sufficient room for an additional child’s bed or baby cot. The cottages are serviced daily. Laundry and babysitting services are available on request. We have a swimming pool for guests' use, although you are also welcome to swim in the dams. All children must be supervised when in, or around the pool/dams and guests are reminded that you swim entirely at your own risk.
