La Petite Ferme


South Africa, Cape Town

FRANSCHHOEK based luxury boutique hotel and wine estate, La Petite Ferme, have launched their newly refurbished Vineyard Suites. And they’re simply, beautiful…

Three months of extensive renovations saw the five Vineyard Suites – which are nestled on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, with spectacular views over the valley – being completely overhauled.

Prior to the renovations, the Vineyard Suites were Cape Vernacular in both look and feel, with reed ceilings and Cape cottage-style furnishings and décor. Following the renovations, the interiors now boast a far more contemporary, upmarket, modern and on trend look, whilst the exterior of the Vineyard Suites are still Cape Vernacular in style – keeping with the heritage of the wine farm and the area.

The bathrooms in the Vineyard Suites received a complete makeover with top-end, luxury fixtures and fittings, and a feature wall of beautiful handmade patterned tiles now occupies pride of place in each bathroom. This feature wall is carried through and mirrored in the wallpaper in the bedrooms of the suites, and each ties back visually to the name and theme of that particular Suite – the five being the Florentine Suite, Provençale Suite, Africa Suite, Moresque Suite and Léman Suite.

All of the Vineyard Suites step out onto their own private terraces with plunge pools.  These too were refurbished and now offer guests built in day-beds on which to relax and savour the view. The re-tiled plunge pools, like the new bathrooms, boast hand-made patterned tiles.

Much thought went into the new Vineyard Suites, with all of the renovations, décor and finishings being individually selected and customised for each room. Interior decorator Clinton Savage did the designs for the Vineyard Suites, and the owners and team at La Petite Ferme were involved in every step of the refurbishment process – personally curating the overall look and feel.

In addition to accommodation, La Petite Ferme, which produces world-class hand crafted wines, is home to an award winning restaurant.  Situated less than 3 minutes from the village of Franschhoek, and with indisputably the best view of the Franschhoek valley it is easy to see why the Vineyard Suites make a perfect getaway for both summer and winter escapes.
