Franschhoek Wine Valley

La Clé des Montagnes


Tranquillity, space and sophisticated style is the essence of La Clé des Montagnes where four distinctive, fully serviced, villas can be found.

Nestled in picturesque vineyards and plum orchards, each of the villas feature a spacious private garden, swimming pool and sweeping views of the Franschhoek mountains. The villas have been given unique personalities by esteemed interior designer, Sarah Ord. Discover a villa to suit, not only your needs, but your personal style where every wish is made manifest by our treasured butlers.

Only a short 4-minute stroll is the center of the historic Franschhoek village bursting with top restaurants, galleries, local wines and unforgettable experiences. We invite you to enjoy a truly memorable stay in the heart of the Franschhoek valley.

La Grange – Sleeps 6

The warm palettes that make up the interiors of the thoughtfully converted barn have been carefully selected to reflect the seasonal hues of the surrounding vineyards with the double-sided fireplace, private pool and plush furnishings ensuring guests receive nothing less than a luxurious stay.
