Franschhoek Wine Valley

Boschendal Mountain Villa


Nestled at the foot of the Simonsberg Mountain, our secluded and private Mountain Villa has six bedrooms, each with stunning views of the valley and surrounding farm landscapes. With lush lawns leading into a private lake, there’s nothing that quitecompares to the sense of tranquility you’ll find here. Pack a picnic basket and walk down the beautiful pathway for a leisurely lunch next to the lake, spend the afternoon canoeing or settle in next to the pool with your favourite book. Whether you’re planning a big family getaway or a farm escape with friends, the Mountain Villa will cater to everyone’s needs and ensure you’ll feel completely removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Villa has a fully equipped kitchen, two lounges and large terrace that wraps around the whole property. The open plan dining area opens onto the pool deck where you get to take in the splendour of the entire Franschhoek valley. Perfectly set up to entertain, with an outside bar area, built-in braai, pizza oven and large swimming pool.

From the villa you’ll have easy access to world-class mountain biking trails and the option to explore our hiking trails on your own or with the guidance of our farm experience team. Your stay includes daily housekeeping and a private chef is available on request. Our team can pre-arrange all farm activities, ensuring a stress-free stay for everyone.
