Auberge La Dauphine

Auberge La Dauphine guesthouse is situated in the picturesque Franschhoek Valley, surrounded by majestic mountains, only 50 minutes drive from Cape Town and two minutes from Franschhoek village.

Our cottages have both double and twin rooms with en-suite bath and shower, lounges, kitchens and DStv. Huge breakfasts are served in the sunny breakfast room or in the courtyard by the fountain. Laze in the garden by the swimming pool, have a game of tennis, enjoy a sun downer in the gazebo at the dam and say hello to our rescue donkeys and chickens in their paddocks.

We can organise wine tours and tastings, on horse-back if you wish, fishing, walking and mountain biking. The village has an extensive range of shops, galleries and cafes. Numerous award-winning restaurants in and around Franschhoek give it the title of leading gourmet region of South Africa.

    "We had a lovely stay, even though the weather was dreadful. The surroundings and the environment are lovely and we so enjoyed the donkeys and ponies. The views are spectacular and it was just an enjoyable weekend.The cottage was a little cold though. It does have a fire, but you have to sit on top of it to really feel it."

  • "Lovely and amily friendly guesthouse"

    12 September 2016

    "We stayed two nights in one of the cottages with our two small boys at Auberge La Dauphine. The space was pretty, clean and well furnished/equipped. We had the most magnificent mountain view and a lovely terrace which lead to the garden in which the kids could roam around safely. The entire property is situated in a beautiful and quiet part of Franschhoek and we went for short walks around the gardens and runs in the area. The breakfast was excellent and the staff super friendly and attentive.We found this place to be great value and will definitely be back when in Franschhoek again."

  • "Comfortable accommodation in beautiful setting"

    14 July 2013

    "Set on a farm in a quiet corner of the Franschhoek valley, Auberge La Dauphine has beautiful views a lovely dam and sweet donkey. The accommodation is simple but very clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful. Nice touches include filter coffee with a plunger and fresh milk in the rooms, rather than the awful sachets you often get. The only rather strange of the farm are the rather bizarre giraffe and cow sculptures in the fields."
