Le Manoir

At Le Manoir, traditional French charm melds with 21st century technology in exquisite surroundings.

 A luxurious 2-bedroom villa situated on the magnificent La Clè des Montagne wine estate in the Western Cape’s famed Franschhoek valley, this unpretentious but stylish home-away-from-home is ideal for small families and couples who are looking for a relaxed countryside retreat.

Dressed in a classical black-and-white palette emboldened by striking accents of French red, Le Manoir does not stint on comforts such as a private swimming pool, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, under-floor heating and satellite TV – all set against a rolling backdrop of craggy mountains.

Use it as a base to uncover the gastronomic treats and surprising vintages of Franschhoek, which has a deserved reputation as South Africa’s foodie capital. Le Manoir’s ‘farmhouse glamour’ sets exactly the right note for this tiny corner of France in the heart of the Cape countryside.

Style & Décor

Imagine awaking in a curtained 4-poster bed, catching a glance in a Baroque gilt mirror or plucking a book to dip into from a floor-to-ceiling wooden bookshelf. Le Manoir manages to strike the perfect balance between grand and humble; classic and modern; aristocratic and homely.


Situated on the magnificent La Cle des Montagnes 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 lovingly known today as the ‘Food and Wine Capital of the Cape’, producing superb wines and 5-star cuisine. Only about a 45-minute drive from Cape Town, the town also has excellent hiking, running and mountain-biking trails, a motor museum with unrivalled vintage cars and wonderful boutiques and galleries in its charming nooks and crannies.


This elegant 2-bedroom villa is perfect for couples or mature families and friends who want rustic charm with urban conveniences.

Best time to visit

Franschhoek is never without its delights, no matter the time of year. From November to March, summer’s long, cheery days allow for lunches under the trees, horse riding through the vineyards and dinners under the stars. Between April and October, bundle up and seek out warm wine cellars or take your leisurely meals next to a log fire. Franschhoek’s two most popular festivals – the Literary Festival in May and the Bastille Festival in July – both take place in winter, when a light powdering of snow sometimes dusts the peaks of the encircling mountains.

Helicopter collection from the airport, private tours of the surrounding award-winning wine estates and a personal chef to cater for your culinary preferences can be arranged.
