La Chataigne is a highly recommended property providing self catering in Franschhoek for tourists visiting the Cape Winelands region.

About La Chataigne

La Chataigne boutique wine farm is located in the heart of the Franschhoek Winelands, surrounded by majestic mountains and endless vineyards. Come and enjoy a few days or more in this wonderful part of the South African Winelands, just an hour’s drive from Cape Town and only 20 minutes drive from Stellenbosch.

Self Catering accommodation

Guests have a choice of three charming Riverside Cottages set along the Franschhoek River.

All of our cottages are self-catering with fully equipped kitchens, modern amenities, spacious open plan living areas and en suite bedrooms. Outdoor space is key to the La Chataigne experience and the two terraces of our Riverside Cottages and large elevated private decks at our Stable Cottages, allow guests to fully absorb the surroundings. We encourage our guest to make themselves at home and play a game of boules at sunset, or pick herbs and vegetables from the Garden to add to their evening meal. On icy winter nights you can cosy up next to the fireplace with a good book in one hand and a glass of our Marron red wine in the other. And on those hot summer days, there is an enticing swimming pool in the pear orchard which is best enjoyed with a bottle of Rosé.

Our cottages are private and peaceful, yet conveniently close to other Franschhoek wine estates and the bustling Franschhoek Village, offering the ideal space for an authentic farm stay.

Chestnut Cottage (sleeps two):
This is our smallest cottage - a cozy two-room 'honeymoon' cottage; one bedroom and one bathroom (with a lovely big shower). It stands right next to the river, with a magnificent view of the mountains and vineyards.

Marron Cottage (sleeps four):
Marron Cottage is a spacious two bedroom cottage with bathrooms en suite, one with a bath and the other with a large walk in shower. It has a modern open plan kitchen and sitting room with a Jetmaster fireplace for those cold winter days.

Kastanje Cottage (sleeps four):
Kastanje Cottage is light and spacious and has a large covered south facing veranda, with braai (barbecue) facilities, overlooking the river. The living area has comfy sofas and a fire place, and a modern, well-fitted open plan kitchen. Both bedrooms are en suite – one with a bath and the other with a shower and a small dressing room.

All cottages are fully equipped and include the following:
• Stove, oven, fridge with a small freezer
• Crockery, cutlery and glassware
• Microwave
• Fireplace
• Internal and external alarm systems
• Braai (barbecue) facilities (including firewood)
• Ceiling fans
• Heaters
• Clean bath towels
• Clean swimming towels for the pool
• Cot available
• Hairdryer available


While staying at La Chataigne, come for a wine tasting. All the wines from La Chataigne – red, white and rosé wines - are delicious, subtle and well balanced, and every bottle is unique in that each label has been handwritten directly on the bottle.
