La Clé des Montagnes

Situated on a working wine estate, in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, La Clé des Montagnes offers villa-style accommodation just four minutes’ walk from the centre of Franschhoek. Each villa is set in its own secluded garden with a swimming pool and comes complete with a private butler to assist with all things great and small.

La Clé is a haven of relaxation and tranquility. Lie by the pool, enjoy a picnic or sample a sumptuous platter prepared by La Clé’s chef. If you need to work off some of the calories, play a spot of tennis, walk the nearby vineyard trails or hop on a mountain bike and explore the picturesque surrounds.

Rooms at La Clé des Montagnes
La Clé Village features rooms and suites in the Manoir, Grange and Colonial Villas and the private villa, La Galerie. The smallest villas have 2 bedrooms and the largest has 4 – perfect for a small group or a family. Individually themed with their own 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 the atmosphere. 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.

The new La Clé Lodge opened in 2018 is set in colourful gardens. The lodge can be booked per room or as a sole use villa with five ensuite bedrooms. The Petite, Garden and Courtyard Rooms feature high ceilings and expansive open areas, adorned with carefully curated items.  Rooms feature a bath and shower and personal bar, complimentary laundry services, and access to a gym in the nearby Franschhoek village.

La Clé Des Montagnes offers hearty home-style meals prepared by chefs who delight in arranging the perfect meals including private picnics in the grounds, platters, delicious dinners in the dining room and scrumptious breakfast options.
