Overview of La Galerie

Billed as Franschhoek’s ‘best-kept secret’, La Galerie is a designer villa straight from the pages of Wallpaper magazine.

This 2-bedroom hideaway is perfect for design-conscious couples who will appreciate 21st century art inside, and plum orchards and magnificent mountainscapes outside.

The interior is a riot of unique pieces and bold tones – think tasteful leopard-print wingbacks and grape-coloured sofas – while the wide patio offers the best nature has to offer.

Franschhoek, which means ‘French corner’, is South Africa’s undisputed gastronomic epicentre. Foodies and wine lovers will be thrilled by new taste discoveries at some of the country’s top restaurants and wineries. But the more active can also enjoy stunning hikes and mountain-bike trails. Franschhoek and La Galerie provide the best of both worlds: city convenience and rural charm.
