Franschhoek is a year-round destination. Regardless of the season, you are guaranteed a perfect reason to spend some time in the Winelands, whether sunning yourself on the terrace or indulging in a cosy meal by the fireplace.

Temperatures vary per season:

Spring (September – November): 8.5°C – 19.1°C | 47.3°F – 66.38°F
Summer (December – February): 13.8°C – 25.9°C | 56.8°F – 78.6°F
Autumn (March – May): 11.4°C – 21.2°C |52.5°F – 70.1°F
Winter (June – August) : 5.7°C – 14.2°C | 42.2°F – 57.6°F

Franschhoek falls in a winter rainfall area, with most of its rain expected May to August.
Harvest time is typically between February and March and many farms (including La Petite Ferme) offer a hands-on harvest experience.

During spring, the Winelands wake up from their winter slumber and explode in lush, bright greens. Mornings and evenings are slightly cooler, but the days are glorious.

Summer brings with it warmer temperatures and lovely lazy outdoor dinners. Days at La Petite Ferme can be filled by lazing around the pool and sipping on cold, crisp, award-winning wines.

Autumn is the Cape’s secret season, when the whole valley turns into a kaleidoscope of burnt orange, amber, red and gold. The days are still warm and dry enough to enjoy the outdoors, while evenings can be enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace.

Winters are cooler, and although Franschhoek falls in a winter rainfall area, rain typically falls for around 8 days per month. There is still plenty of activities to participate in and guests are guaranteed exceptional value for money.
