A charming old Victorian house that has been lovingly restored provides the setting and attentive hosts provide the rest. Les Chambres is situated within easy walking distance of the main road and is less than two minutes' walk from the top Cape Winelands restaurants, including Reuben's, Le Quartier Francais and Le Bon Vivant.
Spacious and comfortable rooms, together with personal service make for a memorable stay. You are welcome to come and take a look at our facilities, when you are next in Franschhoek. Accommodation the way you expect.
Breakfast is a continental-style buffet, comprising a selection of cold meats, cheeses (both local and imported French), fresh fruits and cereals, including our own homemade granola (ask nicely and we may give you the recipe).
If you prefer, we will prepare you a cooked option, such as bacon, eggs (any way you like), sauteed mushrooms and tomato. Perhaps you would prefer something more simple such as poached eggs on English muffins, or try one of our specials, which change daily. Favourites include "Eggs Benedict" and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon-trout (a local delicacy). We also offer a variety of vegetarian cooked breakfasts such as avocado with sauteed mushroom and tomato on a corn fritter or French toast.
With temperatures soaring during summer, what better way to relax than to laze by the pool? Open a bottle of your favourite wine, from one of the local cellars and simply enjoy the afternoon.
Wander around the garden admiring the vast array of plants, both indigenous and exotic. Find one of the benches, perhaps in the herb garden and finish that book you've been meaning to read.
