Everything was great as soon as you entered the gates. A big surprise was the butler service. Since we have been travelling a lot we just wanted to take it easy and the butler prepared us a lovely barbeque. The Villa we stayed in was top quality and very clean. It is only a 5 minute walk to the center... More

We are very fussy, usually complaining about some aspect of even very expensive and well known places, but this place exceeded all expectations. Went last year for a few days, this year went back for ten. Fabulous in every respect. Walk to the attractions of the village, stay in if you like, watch movies (provided, of course) , get the...

It's an amazing place. The rooms furnished exquisitly! The pool area stunning! The location is also great! But the most important is service. These guys made us feel like a royal couple!!!

We returned this week from our second year of a 2-week stay at La Cle, our very first stay in 2012 we did the normal 2-3 day stopover and, well, it obviously made a very lasting impression. This is the ideal place for a family of 4 with young children, it isn't obvious when you look at the pictures but... More

We stayed in Grange and absolutely loved the place. Frank, John, Gift and Peggy took awesome care of us. The bbq they do is a must. The continental breakfast is delicious. The gardens and interiors are beautifully done and well kept. We will be back!

This very special destination can be compared to no other in South Africa. The individual units are designed for the "expecting, not asking" guest. Spacious, elegant, individual in taste and ambiance, magnificently appointed and all overseen by one of the best hosts in the business, Peggy Klement. I have experienced two of the special villas and they represent comfortable living... More

Often when visiting a property for the second time could be disappointing because your first experience was just so good - not with La Cle des Montagnes. Our recent two nights was even better and that is hard to imagine ! The warm welcome of Peggy, delicious MCC bubbles on ice and our butlers, Frank and John, were all superb.... More

Superb location and exceptional service. If you are looking for something unique and exclusive, then la Cle is hard to beat in Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands. The superb team from Peggy, Frank and John made sure our every request, whether it was a last minute dinner, is organised with the minimum of fuss. Very comfortable and private. We sat... More

We stayed here as a last minute change of plan over the Easter weekend, and had a great time. Excellent service and attention from Peggy, Frank, and John, and all the facilities and rooms were first rate. I have never slept in such a comfortable bed! Would love to go back.
