In the small wine town of Franschhoek on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa, lies the newly refurbished La Clé Des Montagnes. A luxury lodge featuring hotel amenities such as room service, free internet, a pool, a bar and a lounge area. A beautiful little hidden gem that’s ideal for those travelling with friends or with family – or even a couple looking for some quiet time in a self-catering estate.
Step into La Clé Des Montagnes to be greeted with fine wine on your arrival followed by evening drinks and canapés. Put your bags down in your beautiful luxurious room and your feet up because you’re in for a real treat on your stay.
Rates include all accommodation, butler and daily services, Wi-Fi, bicycles and transfers in and around Franschhoek. However airport transfers, picnics, personal chefs, child-minding and braais are unfortunately are all additional costs.
There are four villas to choose from: La Grange, Le Manoir, La Galerie and Le Colonial; all of which feature their own bold and unique style. La Galerie being one that stands out to us the most with its charcoal walls and bright saturated coloured furnishings – in complete contrast there’s La Grange, a classic looking room filled to-the-tee with golds and whites making up a truly luxurious room fit for royalty.
Dining is a bit of a mix at La Clé, it’s bed & breakfast but also self-catering but if you want you can hire a chef at the additional cost of $44 dollars per meal. We recommend the packed lunch picnics in the wine lands or a “lekker” traditional South African “braai.”
Franschhoek is an all-round pretty quiet place but it has the most stunning landscapes around Cape Town with extensive green plains filled to the brim with wine farms backdropped by blue mountains. The best activities in the area are cycle tour and wine tours, have a look at our ‘C the Cape’ wine tours under South African Adventures.
Built on the privately owned reserve of Robin and Jo Pope in Zambia's Luangwa Valley is the stunning Luangwa Safari House.
The Sussi & Chuma Villas are located on a quiet bend on the Zambezi River within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National park in Zambia.
