• Is there anything better than a delicious meal, a tall glass of wine, and some glorious mountain views on a cold winter’s day?

    If you found yourself agreeing with this sentiment, the Wine & Food Experience at La Petite Ferme is for you.

    Set in a mountainside estate in Franschhoek, La Petite Ferme offers luxurious accommodation, world-class hand-crafted wines, and an award-winning restaurant. If you time it right, you could either attend Chef’s Table, Themed Evenings, or ‘Wine-Makers’ Tasting Dinners.
