The essence of La Clé des Montagnes lies not only within the exceptional attention to detail, exquisite finishes and superb location, but also in the breadth of experience. Discover a sense of tranquillity, space, flavour and style with the lifestyle of La Clé. Distinctive Franschhoek rooms, suites and villas await you amidst the vines, each with a unique personality and experience to be savoured.

Nestled in picturesque vineyards and plum orchards, spend time savouring a picnic in the lush gardens, a refreshing dip in crystal pools or simply enjoying the ample space that comes with a stay in any of our private villas. Only a 4-minute stroll away is the centre of the historic Franschhoek village bursting with the country’s top restaurants, galleries, local wines and unforgettable experiences. Step outside and discover the lifestyle and heritage of our valley.

Drawing from the rich history of Franschhoek, Manoir exudes an air of sophistication throughout the abundant interiors. Manoir is home to our main reception, lounge, library and dining at La Clé Village where guests come together for meals or to enjoy the rolling lawns, pool and ample living spaces.

With a team of chefs, the cuisine is dynamic and fresh, from local-style ‘braais’ to laden breakfast tables, personalised picnics, private dining and Chef’s Table dinners on select evenings.

Garden suites: At Manoir, there is an air of history redefined with nods to traditional style, yet modern finesse as a result of the design philosophy held by Jacques Erasmus. The suite’s magnificent bedroom leads onto a grand walk-in dressing room which connects to the expansive bathroom. Wonder through to a secluded terrace overlooking the gardens, vines and mountains with the Petite Room adjacent making for the perfect family stay. This suite’s terrace door is significant for us and holds the key to our name, “La Clé des Montagnes”. With Colonial’s Garden Suite, guests are treated to bright colours and modern lines which create a space of eye-catching comfort. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors spill outwards to a private terrace which over looks the shared pool and vineyards beyond. Romance is the essence of this suite where guests embrace a sense of togetherness with the splendid lifestyle of Colonial.

Garden Rooms: Designed for elegant living with high ceilings and spacious interiors, the Gardens Rooms of La Clé des Montagnes are a haven for those seeking out a Winelands retreat. All these en-suite rooms offer guests the opportunity to escape into local history with antique accents collected from throughout the Western Cape. Coupled with modern styling, the Garden Rooms are both rustic and refined. Cocoon in luxurious bed linen or step outside onto the terraces which offer expansive views of the gardens, vineyards and/or mountains beyond.

Courtyard Rooms: With luxurious linen, secluded locations, private access to the gardens and terraces of La Clé and lavish bathrooms, the Courtyard Rooms are spacious retreats to while away the hours over a cup of tea and homemade rusk. Step outside and into the lush grounds and explore the expansive estates, or read a book in the sheltered garden just outside your door.

Petite Rooms: Secluded and refined, the Petite Rooms of La Clé are charming, cosy and comfortable. We offer more than welcoming Cape Dutch-style homes at La Clé des Montagnes… Be immersed in the colourful lifestyle of Franschhoek, steeped in history and brimming with cultural experiences. Take time to explore the best of the valley with a stay in our Petite Rooms.

Galerie: A contemporary space where saturated colours juxtapose with minimalist interiors capturing the essence of the avant-garde. With two en-suite bedrooms, expansive living space, open plan kitchen and private garden, Galerie is the perfect fully serviced escape for up to four guests.
