Welcome to the French Cottage in the picturesque Karoo town of Prince Albert where relaxation is a way of life.

The French Cottage is run on Solar Power.

Perfect as a romantic getaway or as an escape from the stresses of city life, The French Cottage is a totally private and intimate space with views across olive groves and lavender.

It has a wide veranda for afternoon naps and sundowners, an extra length king-size bed with mosquito net. An open plan lounge with air-con/heater and a fireplace. A fully equipped kitchen for those guests choosing self-catering. A Weber BBQ is also available.

Linen and towels are included.

We just hope you are dog lovers as we have three beautiful Rhodesian Ridgebacks in our property. They are very friendly and welcoming but wont bother you as a fence separates you from their home at the main house.

Unfortunately as this is their home, we dont take pets.

We regret but we do not accept children on the property.

"A cottage with everything you need, done in great style. Lovely views. Perfect. Only small thing is I would have liked larger bath towels but that is being really picky.."

"My husband and I recently spent our wedding anniversary at the French Cottage. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The cottage is romantic and peaceful, being on the edge of town and overlooks olives groves and distant mountains. We loved relaxing on the 'stoep' and were quite content not to leave the cottage at all, apart from a few short trips into town and a walk to Prince Albert Olives on Hope Street. The cottage is stylish and very well equipped. We enjoyed the Nespresso machine. Elin and Didier are wonderful, friendly hosts and have truly created a slice of Karoo heaven. We were sad to leave and will most definitely return. Thank you for having us.LoveSue and Craig"

"We were so impressed with The French Cottage! It is located on the edge of an olive grove with lovely views of the Karoo landscape from the porch and just a short walk to the center of the town. The cottage is beautifully decorated with all the home comforts of a fully equipped kitchen, air-con and fire place. It was wonderful to stay in a place where the hosts have give such attention to detail. Elin and Diddier were incredibly friendly and really made us feel welcome. We look forward to returning to the porch, quietly reading and watching the Karoo day go by."
