About La Fontaine Guest House

La Fontaine welcomes you into the heart of Franschhoek (1 hour from Cape Town). The Franschhoek Valley lies deep in the Cape Winelands, nestled between towering mountains where splendid wines are grown and our top chefs create international cuisine - a place towards which Nelson Mandela turned, as he began his long walk to freedom.


Experience country hospitality in this gracious, centrally situated large old home with spectacular mountain views. Within walking distance to acclaimed restaurants, galleries and shops. La Fontaine has fourteen spacious double bedrooms en suite; five upstairs, one downstairs in the main house; three set in a peaceful garden with pool and courtyard surroundings, a family garden suite. Each garden suite has a fireplace, TV, fridge, separate entrance and patio. Plus three luxury rooms, one of which is a wheelchair friendly room and 1 family garden room in Campbell House, an adjoining Victorian home.

Each garden room has a fireplace, TV, fridge, separate entrance and patio. Three luxury rooms in Campbell House, an adjoining renovated 19th century home with Victorian baths and full showers, high ceilings and wooden floors, adds to the ambience of this home from home accommodation.
