The spirit of La Cle Des Montagnes
Situated on a working wine estate, in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, La Clé Des Montagnes is a four minutes’ walk to the centre of the Fanschhoek village. Offering a range of beautiful accommodation options, La Clé Des Montagnes features La Clé Village and La Clé Lodge. La Clé Village features rooms and suites in the Manoir, Grange and Colonial Villas and the private villa, La Galerie. Uniquely themed and each boasting a sophisticated style, the villas are scenically positioned in the middle of picturesque vineyards and plum orchards. Handcrafted furniture, spectacular chandeliers and large fireplaces add to an atmosphere of ultimate comfort. Deep chairs and couches set on wide verandas make the most of the magnificent landscapes. Each villa boasts its own swimming pool, set in a tranquil garden with sweeping views over the surrounding mountains. For a personal retreat, La Galerie Villa is a gorgeous private two-bedroom fully-serviced villa, complete with an art collection, private garden and pool.
La Clé Lodge is a tranquil retreat immersed in colourful gardens, and Petite, Garden and Courtyard Rooms feature high ceilings and expansive open areas, adorned with carefully curated items. Jacques Erasmus of Hemelhuijs was the eye behind the interiors and perfectly blended contemporary beauty with classic elements in the lodge. Rooms feature a bath and shower and personal bar, complimentary laundry services, and access to a nearby gym. The lodge can be booked per room or as a sole use villa with five ensuite bedrooms. La Clé Des Montagnes offers the opportunity to relish hearty home-style meals prepared by chefs who delight in arranging the perfect meals including private picnics in the grounds, delicious dinners in the dining room and simply scrumptious breakfast options. Engage with the chefs at the Chefs Table in the large country. Sink into absolute relaxation, play a spot of tennis, or hop on a bicycle and leisurely cycle through the picturesque surrounds. Meander through the sprawling garden, walk on vineyard trails and jump into a helicopter for breathtaking excursions over the winelands. Sip a Pimms and play Boules and Croquet, cool off in the dams shaded by willow trees, and just absorb the beauty of your surroundings.
