    Luxurious comfort and delicious food

    La Petite Dauphine was fantastic - the bedroom was extremely comfortable, with amazing bed linen and lovely bathroom products and the location is superb; 5 minutes outside of Frandhoek in very peaceful olive and wine groves. We had a delicious breakfast on both mornings at Cafe Bonbon, in particular the flapjacks (pancakes).
