What's So Special About La Cotte Farm?

La Cotte Farm is uniquely situated just a stone’s throw from the charming village of Franschhoek. It offers close proximity to the fun and bustle of the main street with all the quiet, privacy, and rural charm of a working wine farm.

La Cotte Farm dates back to 1698 when the first of the eleven Huguenot Farms was granted to the French immigrants who fled their native country during the 17th century. Today, they celebrate this rich heritage. This stunning farm can now be hired exclusively as a wedding venue, and offers you and your guests 360 degree views of the beautiful Franschhoek valley.



With on-site accommodation for 102 guests, comprised of 19 self catering cottages, 10 rooms in the main Manor House hotel and the Main House & Lake Cottage which can accommodate up to 10 – you can easily host everyone on site for the duration of your wedding celebrations.

Offering an all-inclusive, unique wedding experience – in-house catering, bar facilities, a hands-on venue manager who will oversee the running of the events, staff who will assist with your setup and direct contact with our trusted décor suppliers and other vendors – what more could you want for your South African destination wedding? It’s never been so easy. We’ll see you on that terrace…

South Africa’s big cities have comprehensive transport networks, from buses to suburban rail
routes. Most taxis have to be ordered in advance by phone – avoid the minibus taxis (or ‘black cabs’) as these are often dilapidated and rarely on time.

Public Holidays

Aside from Christmas and Easter some of the most important public holidays include Freedom Day (27th April), Human Rights Day (21st March), National Women’s Day (9th August) and the Day of Reconciliation (16th December).

What Couples Say

We celebrated our son’s wedding in Franschoek by staying at La Cotte, where we hosted a following-day bar-b-que and pool party. The accommodation, service and setting were all fabulous and the stay and party were a resounding success. Couldn’t recommended it more hightly.
