First up though, we’d like to introduce you to Silestone. Our new countertops will be created out of the revolutionary product.
The world’s first quartz surfaces designed by Cosentino:  “Silestone’s sleek surfaces are manufactured from the finest natural quartz and according to the most stringent techniques. Not only are Silestone’s surfaces nonporous, shock, scratch and stain resistant, but unique in that the quartz surface contains an active antibacteriostatic properties that suppress the growth and development of harmful bacteria and micro-organisms throughout the life of the material.”

Goodbye old kitchen!

Our chefs have been busy, but not in their usual way of prepping, cooking and recipe reading – no, last Sunday night was our last service until we re-open the hotel on 12 July and The Tasting Room on 23 July: find out more about our beauty sleep here.

Head chef, Margot Janse gamely let the chefs artistic visions fly through permanent marker this time, straight onto the tiled walls, as the entire kitchen is going to be redone, revamped and reinvigorated. Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be updating you with the various exciting changes that will be taking place, so as they say, stay tuned!

In the meantime, here are some of the cheffy scribbles.

Beauty sleep

This summer season has been nothing short of spectacular. The weather
has been glorious in Franschhoek, the town alive with visitors; and it
feels good to know we’ve made so many people happy at both Le Quartier
Français and Delicious. We’ll be closing both hotels for between 18
June and 18 July 2013 for some rejuvenating beauty sleep.
While Le Quartier Français sleeps we’ll be upgrading the auberge
bathrooms and suites. Plus we’ll be transforming The Common Room into
a bar—like one never before seen in Franschhoek; follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates as we tailor our bar offering that will include out-of-this-world drinks and food.
