La Cle des Montagnes - Franschhoek

Sophisticated style and breathtaking beauty is the essence of La Clé des Montagnes.

La Clé des Montagnes offers an idyllic setting a short stroll from the historic village of Franschhoek. A selection of four unique villas await you on a working wine estate, surrounded by picturesque vineyards, plum orchards with a magnificent mountain backdrop. Enjoy an unparalleled experience in the heart of the beautiful Franschhoek valley.

Developed by international hotelier and entrepreneur Michael Pawlowski, an active member of the Franschhoek community having relocated here from Europe in 2007, La Clé des Montagnes (‘key to the mountains’) is essentially a top of the range self-catering villa experience on a working plum and wine farm. 

A home-away-from-home, each villa not only provides complete privacy and security, but unlike any other professionally serviced villa product in Franschhoek, lends itself to entertaining, with spacious living rooms with fireplaces and a library, indoor and outdoor areas, a private swimming pool and garden, as well as a fully equipped kitchen. Surrounded by vineyards with views across the mountains, villas come complete with all home comforts to suit extended stays, and are able to accommodate families with children of all ages.

Experienced hotelier Peggy Klement has been appointed as General Manager to lead a small professional team providing personalised hotel concierge, butler and hospitality services. These may range from private chefs and child-minders, to helicopter transfers and golf excursions.
