    We booked this very last minute and we were absolutely delighted. The house is in a beautiful quite location with a short walk into town. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend a stay here.

    Ideal setting
    The hotel is just a few rooms and very cute. Breakfast is lovely and the hotel is quiet. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the main road with all the restaurants. Pretty pool and comfortable rooms.

    Couple retreat.
    Outstanding stay at the newly opened La Ferme Vive la Vie. I knew it was a bit of a risk to book a room in a place that had not yet opened but we were not disappointed. Upon arrival we were thrilled with the gorgeous thatched roof home, the pool and our pool-side room. Peter, Andrea and Annalize and all the staff were absolutely wonderful. Our room was perfect in every way and having a bottle of wine delivered on our arrival was a lovely bonus! The breakfast was probably my favourite part. I loved the muesli, fruit yogurt treat and the french toast was also delicious. The location is about a 10 minute walk from the main street, which is great so you can enjoy some wine with dinner and saunter home. We had a little bit of noise from the tenants above us on the first night (arrival at 2:30 am) but otherwise all was amazing. We had massages by the pool which was also absolutely lovely. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet romantic getaway.

    First Guest at La Ferme Vive la Vie
    We spent two nights and were the first guest ever to have booked into the guest house. We were given the pool facing room off of the veranda. The room was beautifully appointed with plenty of space and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was very large with a double shower. Breakfast was served in the dining room, also off of the veranda. There was plenty to choose from and plentiful. The staff were attentive and very helpful from the check-in to the dining room and kitchen staff. There were a few very little things that has not been completed, like towel rails in the bathroom and also a soap dish in the shower, these had not been completed before they opened and the management told us that they were going to be attended to. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would certainly recommend La Ferme Vive la Vie to others.
