    A gem in Franschhoek
    I can't recommend La fontaine highly enough. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly - absolutely nothing was too much trouble - booking restaurants and arranging taxis for us, drinks by the pool etc. The interior decor was beautiful - it is very obvious that a huge amount of thought has been put into making this such a special place.
