La Clé des Montagnes

SKU: 27381 Category:

Four luxurious and sophisticated villas are hidden away on a working wine estate just a short stroll away from Franschhoek’s picturesque main street with its restaurants, galleries, cafes and boutiques. La Clé des Montagnes offers the best of both worlds: tranquil views over vineyards and mountains and proximity to all the attractions of the renowned food and wine capital of South Africa, together with the luxury of privacy in a choice of beautifully decorated and spacious villas, each with its own sparkling saltwater swimming pool and garden and excellent butler service to cater for all your whims and needs.

The villas are individual and atmospheric, luxuriously renovated with all the modern comforts, including air-con and underfloor heating, from the original historic buildings of the wine estate. The interior design by Sarah Ord is completely different in each, so choose a villa to suit your taste. Two bedroom Manoir celebrates the French heritage of Franschhoek with elegant antiques, continental style and contemporary comfort; La Galerie in contrast has a rich modern palette and avant garde energy, combining antiques and iconic contemporary design pieces with great panache. Three bedroom La Grange has a softer range of warm earth hues with a Victorian farmhouse feel, and four bedroom Le Colonial celebrates the best of Africa with rich patterns and vibrant Moroccan tones.

Each villa has a fully equipped kitchen and a variety of indoor and outdoor living spaces, TV rooms and comfortable sofas, so they really are ideal for weekends of relaxing in front of a log fire or by the pool among scented gardens and mature fruit trees. Stay in and cook for yourself with foodie finds from the local delis, walk the 200m to town and sample some of its renowned restaurants, or relax and drink in the enchanting views with a glass of bubbly while your butler and personal chef shop and cook for you at home; and it really does feel like home, so personalised is the experience.

For a magical family get-together or a romantic weekend hideaway, La Clé des Montagnes is the most beautiful backdrop to relaxed and stylish living.
