“I so enjoyed sipping on a chilled glass of bubbly served by our butler, Frank, at the gorgeous 3 bedroom villa, La Grange at La Cle Des Montagnes, overlooking the Franschhoek Mountains and surrounding vineyards!”Hazel Stuart, Africa Villas Expert
Contemporary monochrome chic meets classic country style at La Grange. Rich textures like exposed wooden beans and vintage brick walls are softened by a palette of creamy neutrals. More manor house than farm house, La Grange manages to combine understated Victorian touches with modern sensibilities. The verandah is a colonial classic: wide, white, cool and comfortable; the perfect spot for a chilled Chardonnay or a smooth Pinotage.
Situated on the magnificent Le Clé des Montagne wine estate in the Western’s Cape Franschhoek valley, the villa is surrounded by some of the region’s finest wine-producing countryside. Originally founded by the French Huguenots after their exodus to Africa, this little French corner is today lovingly known as the ‘Food and Wine Capital of the Cape’, producing superb wines and as well as gourmet olives and chocolate. Just an hour’s easy drive from Cape Town, Franschhoek maintains a village atmosphere, where friendly locals run the quirky shops and galleries, and meet at the sidewalk cafés for morning espressos and evening sundowners. The town is also home to the Franschhoek Motor Museum, a must-see for car enthusiasts.
La Grange is a must for families and friends wanting to escape the fast-paced city life and enjoy a luxurious and relaxed countryside getaway. Foodies, oenophiles and Francophiles will delight in this beautiful location.
With four very distinct seasons throughout the year (and, as the locals say, sometimes all in one day) Franschhoek can be visited at any time during the year. Spring and summer stretch from about September to March, when alfresco dining, picnics and cooling dips in the pool are the order of the day. Autumn in April and May brings glorious colours to vineyards, while winter – from June to September – often sees a scattering of snow on the caps of Franschhoek’s mountains. Winter is ideal for snug wine cellars and visiting the town’s Literary and Bastille Festivals.
The contemporary farm-style kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-range amenities. Wooden flooring and high ceilings make the room light and airy with beautiful views onto the garden.
Sumptuously furnished in rich textures and plush fabrics, the master bedroom is a haven of luxury. A deep-buttoned king-sized bed promises heavenly rest while a spacious lounge area offers solitude. An antique chandelier is bravely juxtaposed with an exposed vintage brick wall, for rustic elegance. Large French windows brighten the room and embrace stunning garden views.
Contemporary, country-style décor in creamy, natural tones continue in the remaining two bedrooms. Elegant lounge areas accompany each room, with French windows offering magnificent views.
Beautifully appointed, spacious en suite bathrooms accompany each room, with luxurious ball-and-claw bathtubs, rain showers and heated towel rails.
The ample living and dining areas run the length of La Grange, with contemporary furniture in seasonal hues that reflect the surrounding vineyards. An ornate fireplace invites you to snuggle close for cosy winter nights by the fire.
Surrounded by rolling vineyards, La Grange lies within a landscaped garden with tranquil views. A deep-set patio offers a shady place to relax and a barbeque and outdoor dining area is perfect for entertaining. A private swimming pool lures you in on hot summer days.
