La Cle des Montagnes
One of our best kept secrets, La Cle des Montagnes, is surrounded by vineyards, plum orchards and magnificent mountains. It is a stone's throw away from Franschhoek village in the Cape Wine Regions of South Africa. This is truly the perfect, private exclusive escape!

La Cle des Montagnes

Tucked away on a working wine farm with pretty plum trees, the La Cle des Montagnes offers four properties just a stone's throw away from Franschhoek village, the culinary capital of South Africa.

A kind of Provence-meets-Napa heaven in a home-away-home-from setting, La Cle is a private, comfortable and elegant boutique retreat. Guests have the choice of four uniquely decorated villas in a farm luxe style, each with its own enticing plunge pool and barbeque area for sultry summer nights. It’s equally inviting in the winter, with cosy fireplaces that go down beautifully with a hearty glass of luscious, local red wine! 

La Cle is the ideal setting to become acquainted with the local lifestyle. Relax, unwind, sample and savour the local wine and cuisine. The pools are irresistible, the kitchens are to die for, and it’s all serviced by enthusiastic and attentive staff. Once you’re feeling relaxed, take a stroll to the quaint village brimming with boutiques and shops, or visit the surrounding wine farms.

This is the kind of farm break you’ve always yearned for!
