About Petit Plaisir
Peace and quiet, guaranteed! Petit Plaisir self-catering cottage lies in the quaint little town of Franschhoek, a fine wine and dining hotspot and one of South Africa’s truly beautiful localities. In fact, there is so much to see and do, that it’s best you don’t rush your stay.
Petit Plaisir is the perfect romantic hideaway, on the side of the village, for couples who like to tour on their own terms. Our single cottage offers visitors the ultimate luxury: no porters or guests to disturb your privacy. Its just a short walk to art galleries, restaurants and shops on the Main Road.
The cottage is fully equipped and stylishly decorated with the kind of understated sophistication that has earned us a 4-star rating. Bigger children are welcome - we have a room and bathroom en-suite at the back of the cottage, with entrance from the garden and swimming pool area. Relax by the swimming pool, enjoy the beautifully kept garden and admire the mountain views. Our summer evenings can also be enjoyed at the swimming pool are.
Make your own barbeque, lay the table in the garden and have your dinner by candle light. Enjoy your breakfast on the patio in the morning sun, with a view of the mountains, pick your own herbs from the herb garden or spoil your partner with a freshly picked rose from the garden.
