La Clé Des Montagnes, Franschhoek.

A couple of weeks back I was invited to the launch of La Cles des Montagnes private villas in Franschhoek. The setting is idyllic and only a short walk from the heart of the historic village. Offering a selection of four unique villas on a working wine estate (in town!), surrounded by vineyards and plum orchards with a magnificent mountain backdrop, its hard to believe that here you can have it all.

Each villa is rented as a stand alone unit with kitchen, lounge and dining room. A personal butler is always on hand and if you require it, they are happy to provide you with your own gourmet chef. Sounding like heaven?

The outside areas and private verandahs are fabulous, perfect for lazy days and reading. Each villa has its own pool and garden for maximum privacy. Its all utterly charming. 

Textures, solid woods and distinct fabrics contribute to the clear Colonial meets Victorian farmhouse theme with sheer luxury and opulence abounding. I wanted to kick off my shoes and snuggle onto one of the couches among the colorful cushions, another time I hope. The eclectic match of hand painted tiles, woven carpets, wall paper, rich colors and various art era create a sense of abandoned luxury. The chandeliers and piles of fabulous books on coffee tables even more so.

This is a place that I will recommend to friends and clients wanting more space and privacy than a hotel or guest house can offer. Rates are in line with the offerings and I look forward to my return to one of these dream villas.

La Cles Des Montagnes is a proud member of Inspirational Places.
