Le Quartier Français
Surrounded by blooming rose and jasmine gardens—as well as stunning Cape Winelands scenery—this property practically begs for thrown-open windows and romantic strolls. Twenty-one luxurious rooms and suites are set in Victorian-style structures surrounding a central courtyard and an oval swimming pool with teak loungers. Top South African chef Margot Janse oversees both on-site restaurants: the dressy Tasting Room with its daily tasting menus and the more casual Living Room tapas restaurant. Kids are well looked after here; before arrival, their rooms are stocked with age-appropriate books, DVDs, and fun bath amenities like kid-size bathrobes and bath capsules that expand into African animal sponges.
