The Detail

Guests can indulge in the valley's beauty, explore art galleries, browse the market, taste local wines, and experience the serene ambiance, spaciousness, flavors, and elegance synonymous with Franschhoek living.

Situated amidst vineyards on the outskirts of Franschhoek, the Lodge and Villas offer easy access to the village center, just a short stroll away.

Accommodation

Discover four Villas and a Lodge nestled among vineyards and orchards, yet conveniently located just a five-minute walk from the heart of Franschhoek. Here, you can experience an authentic insider's view of village life in South Africa. Whether you're exploring the mountains, sampling the finest wines, cheeses, and restaurants in the valley, La Clé is all about celebrating life.

La Clé Lodge

Situated in the heart of Franschhoek, is a charming thatched farmhouse that has been restored into an elegant country retreat. Featuring spacious living areas, five lovely en-suite bedrooms, and a kitchen at its core, the lodge offers an immersive experience.

With views of vineyards and mountains, the lodge embodies the essence of gracious country living. Managed by a dedicated culinary team providing warm and attentive service, guests can enjoy delicious meals, refreshing drinks, and engaging conversations. Whether joining a communal dinner at the long central table, savoring an outdoor barbecue on a balmy summer evening, or opting for an intimate table for two, there's a dining experience to suit every preference.

La Clé Lodge attracts travelers who value art, design, culinary experiences, and the comfort of a home-like environment over a traditional hotel setting. Just a 10-minute walk away, situated on a separate village-farm, are the four La Clé Villas.

Located on a farm at the outskirts of the village, the four villas (Grange, Manoir, Galerie, and Domain) are perfect for hosting small group gatherings such as weddings and birthday celebrations. Just a 10-minute walk away, on a separate village-farm, you'll find La Clé Lodge.

Grange Villa

This restored historic village barn, boasts a spacious open living area with a central double-sided fireplace, three elegant en-suite bedrooms, and an airy loft area, ideal for accommodating up to four children when the villa is booked exclusively.

Featuring ample dining and lounging spaces both indoors and outdoors, a well-equipped open-plan kitchen, a sun-drenched swimming pool, and picturesque mountain vistas, Grange Villa is well-suited for both individual room bookings and exclusive villa rentals.

Manoir Villa

This historic farmhouse nestled in the charming village of Franschhoek, stands out as one of the area's most exquisite structures. Lose yourself in its numerous rooms or enjoy the wraparound verandah that offers views from three sides.

With only two bedrooms, Manoir Villa is an ideal retreat for families or couples. The master suite, the epitome of luxury at La Clé, features a dressing room and a beautiful en-suite bathroom, while the second bedroom, albeit smaller, is perfect for children and includes a separate lounge area that can accommodate a third bed.

The villa also boasts a study, dining room, lounge, conservatory area, and a delightful kitchen that opens onto outdoor spaces featuring a spacious swimming pool and expansive lawns.

Galerie Villa

Evoking the ambiance of an eclectic artist's abode, this chic two-bedroom Villa features an open-plan living space that seamlessly connects to La Clé's finest verandah. From this vantage point, you can savor the serenity of your private garden while relishing in dining and lounging amidst sweeping vistas of vineyards and mountains.

Boasting two equally inviting rooms, Galerie Villa offers the ideal retreat for two couples seeking a memorable escape.

Domain Villa

Next to the two-bedroom Galerie Villa, you'll find the renovated Domain Villa. Once a chicken coop, it has been transformed into a stylish four-bedroom retreat beloved by extended families and groups of friends.

Domain Villa's bright and airy interiors blend African hues with vibrant style. While the four rooms vary in size, they all share generously proportioned living spaces. In addition to the spacious indoor lounge, there's a breakfast verandah overlooking the rising sun, a deeper lunch verandah with an outdoor dining and seating area, and a sundowner verandah boasting uninterrupted views of the pool, mountains, and vineyards as the sun sets.
