Riverside Cottages is a subdivision of the farm Bourgogne which was among the first Huguenot farms proclaimed in 1694. The farm was first granted to Pierre de Villiers, by Simon van der Stel. However, in 1800 the farm changed hands, and was held by the Roux family for many years. The Le Roux family descendants continue to farm here to this day, on our behalf. Shaded by 150 year old oaks, the farm house at La Bourgogne is a classic example of "Cape English" style, which is in effect early to mid Victorian. Our farm has a warmth and charm which captivates all who visit us.

La Bourgogne - home to Riverside Cottages - is a working farm producing high quality wine and other farm products. The Riverside Cottages at La Bourgogne are converted staff houses, dating back to 1952, and are situated on the banks of the river between a pear orchard to the west and oaks and willows to the east. The glow of sunset colours on the Middagkrans Mountains, framed by the trees, is spectacular.

A swimming pool with sun loungers, parasols and a deck overhangs the river providing the perfect place to unwind and take in Franschhoek's magnificent mountain views whilst having a casual braai. Our cottages are comfortable living in a beautiful and tranquil setting, ideal for wonderful summers, family retreat or a cozy, romantic winter weekend away. The stream which runs through the farm, is a tributary of the Franschhoek River, and plays a meaningful role in the supply of water to our farm, and to those down stream of us. Please respect the river and all its environs. A pair of Black Duck lives on the river, we have Cape Eagle Owls in the oaks surrounding us, and genet cats can make the keeping chickens a hazardous matter.

The farm produces plums, pears, butternut, grapes and olives. We supply plums to export markets in Europe and the Mid/Far East, and the farm continues to win prizes and awards due to the efforts of our farming team. The Franschhoek valley has something for everyone ... hiking, golf, horse riding and fly-fishing can be enjoyed in close proximity to the farm.

Cottages: There are 6 self-catering cottages to choose from, all of which have under floor heating in the bathrooms, showers and open fire places in the living rooms.

We had an absolutely dreamy time at Riverside Cottages. The cottage had everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The pool was delightful as were visits from Joey, the friendly farm dog. The wine tasting was lovely and we had a great breakfast in the cafe!

We loved the Riverside Cottage. It’s such a romantic setting and we received a free wine tasting that we weren’t expecting. The staff were friendly and the farm is inviting. The cottage was spacious and beautifully decorated and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a real treat! An uncommon luxury! We will definitely return.

Many thanks,

My hubby and I were welcomed with such a warm greeting and throughout our stay, the service and hospitality was phenomenal. The charming cottage was neat and inviting, we felt so comfortable and immediately adapted to our home away from home with our fur-baby. The three of us had an amazing weekend, from strolling through the farm, soaking up the sun and unwinding in the sparkling swimming pool to the delicious complimentary wine tasting. Then ending off our days with a lovely braai and relaxing by the fireplace. This will definitely be a holiday home that we will be going back to at least once a year and will be recommending to all our friends and family. Thank you to Afristay for such a smooth process.

Riverside Cottages at La Bourgogne are fantastic. Nest, tidy and plenty of space. This gardens and pool area are a virtual little piece of heaven. We took out two small dogs and they didn't want to leave. Avery very special little hideaway. Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful weekend.

When we arrived, there was an electricity failure which meant we couldn't stay. However they were extremely apologetic, had made an alternative booking for us next door at the same rate and gave us some free goodies from their cellar door as an apology. We were impressed by their effort and would book again.

This is such a beautiful and well run town, with an abundance of wine and good food! Would highly recommend this for any visitors seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or just want a romantic weekend away. It is on the pricey side, so be prepared to pay a bit for a meal and drinks. Otherwise have fun!
