La Cle des Montagnes


An ultra-sophisticated take on self-catering is provided by these four elegant villas just a few minutes walk from the centre of the historic village of Franschhoek.

Sleeping between two and eight, each villa has spacious indoor and outdoor living areas, a private garden and swimming pool, making them perfect for couples, families or a group of friends. While guests can be as private as they wish, the villas also offer a personalised concierge service – this can mean anything from butler service or baby sitters, to chefs or chauffeurs.


Our Thoughts

Ideal for those tiring of eating gourmet meals, these villas offer superior self-catering facilities within easy reach of Franschhoeks’ delis and shops. Particularly good for families, each villa has a private pool and plenty of space for the younger ones to run around.

  • Continental Breakfast
  • Welcome drinks
  • Butler service
  • Health Club passes
  • Personal Chef

The villas are self catering, with excellent facilities. If you prefer to take a night off you can hire a personal chef (additional cost) while you take it easy, but still in the comfort of your ‘own home’. For an extra special night out, why not explore the surrounding area with plenty of restaurants to dine at you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

La Cle des Montagnes has a suite to suit everyone. From the sophisticated La Grange, with its elegant touches and warm tones mixed with strong wood furniture to Le Manoir which contrasts red, grey, black and white is a French inspired suite. La Galerie it’s an artist’s favourite, with bold splashes of colour against grey walls, and Le Colonial for the more traditional Africa meets France with trinkets and patterned furniture. Which ever you decide there is something to appeal to all tastes. They are also self catering and being a few minutes walk from the village you can pick up some fresh local produce and cook in your own time, and eat besides your own pool perhaps? (Sleeps 4, 6 and 8 depending on which house you choose).
