The kiddies’ menu at Bread & Wine was created by the Jewell kids, Ellie & Rachel! After much tasting and experimenting, we think they come up with a menu to make little tummies very happy.

We think one of the many reasons Room 16 is special, is for its private courtyard. The tranquil space is just the spot to enjoy a morning cup of tea, or indeed a Nespresso. Or a glass of wine at night while gazing at the stars…
The Auberge offers nine en-suite Auberge Rooms, three Grande Rooms, three Petite Garden Suites and two deluxe Auberge Suites (with private pools), which open onto a rose-filled central courtyard and swimming pool. For the ultimate in luxury, there are four state-of-the-art suites, The Four Quarters, overlooking a private pool and sun-splashed deck.
There’s a cold snap in the air… so why not snap your fingers and wish yourself to Le Quartier Français, we have a variety of ways to warm you right up.
1. Pop into B.gorgeous and get a wash-and-blow in a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere—you may as well take advantage of the foot soak that comes with the pedicure too.
2. Sit by the fireside in the Lounge Bar with a cup of Lady Bonin Tea.
3. Cuddle under blankets in your own private garden in one of our suites, while gazing up at the stars in the clear country sky.
4. Grab a colourful casserole dish from our Le Creuset pop-up shop and cook something hearty at home.
5. Indulge in a hot breakfast in The Garden Room, ensconced in a cosy nook.
The pillars of food, art and wine have long been a part of our offering at Le Quartier Français and now we’ve added beauty to the mix. Looking out over our tranquil Herb Garden is our latest offering, b.gorgeous.
It’s a day spa with a difference. Sit back and relax with a glass of Môreson Méthode Cap Classique or a fresh fruit cocktail, while we take care of you.
Indulge in a manicure, pedicure or indeed both. We offer all the traditional treatments including, Gelish for your nails, which lasts for up to two weeks with no chipping or fading as well as nail art!
We also have a simple wash-and-blow dry service for your hair (so you don’t need to worry about cheating on your hairdresser), though we can promise an excellent head massage.
b.gorgeous is also an emporium for small, unique gifts for yourself or others; from beauty products, accessories, jewellery and more. Some of the items include: beautifully beaded So Cape Sandals; and innovative Wrist-to-Hair bracelets that can be used to tie up your hair.
And to really blow your hair back—we’re inviting talented local tattoo artists to make cameo appearances for all your skin art needs. Dates and times will be available on our web page shortly.
