We only stayed 1 night but this was a real treat and experience. Our "villa" dated back to the 1800's and used to be a packing shed. Now it is a luxury 'self catering' country villa located in the heart of Franschhoek, literally within walking distance of all the shops along the main high street trough the centre of town....

We arrived on a stunning Cape Winter's day. The skies could not be bluer, the views from our terrace not more beautiful. We staid in La Galerie, two gorgeous bedrooms, the passage a real gallery with stunning pieces and then of course the most generous living, dining and kitchen area all in one. Stylishly designed and with a homely quality... More

The only true villa experience in the Cape Winelands have to be those at La Cles Des Montagne, overlooking vineyards and mountains, yet within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of central Franschhoek. Superb American born GM Peggy Klement with extensive experience in Africa and her charming and genial partner Larry Gould are wonderful hosts with attentive butlers and... More

I returned home to a very wet and chilly Johannnesburg late yesterday, but nothing can dampen the enthusiasm I and I know Kate, felt for the wonderful warm hospitality we received from you and your team at La Cle. You really do have a little [ well not so small ] piece of heaven at all the villas, and La... More

First of all you would need to make up your mind of what kind of interior design you prefer in your villa - Or maybe you should just let yourself be surprised by the work done by the international star designer Sarah Ord - All the villas are unique and great and so are the people who take care of...

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay at La Clé for a special birthday weekend this past weekend. I can't find the words to accurately describe how truly extraordinary our experience was. Frank & John (our butlers) were friendly, genuine, humble and helpful. Chantel, as well as being kind and smiley, offered excellent advice on where to eat... More

We (my husband, sister and brother-in-law) stayed at La Cle ("Key to the Mountains") last month and I cannot remember when I was as blown away with the beauty of a setting and facilities as I was when we stepped into this special place. It is the sense of place that I was not prepared for. It is just 2... More

My parents and I recently had the privileged of a stay in the absolute lap of luxury at La Cle Des Montanges http://www.lacle.co.za/ We've traveled extensively and have stayed in some amazing 5* places. La Cle, immediately, jumped into my 'Top 5' list. We were given a warm welcome by Peggy (GM) and Chantel (her assistant), who led us into... More

The villas are all different but extra-ordinary in design, furnishings, location, amenities and charm- each has a different feel! Beautiful and perfectly managed and serviced. My two bedroom villa was delightful -- a struggle to choose which room to sleep in! Frank welcomed me and does everything, even before asking. Wonderful! The terrace with the enchanting views over the orchards,... More

Absolute perfection. We had the wonderful experience of staying in the large villa where nothing was overlooked. Our arrival was on a Friday evening and to be greeted by our superb butler Frank with a glass of champagne we immediately felt relaxed and spoilt. The pool is a decent full size placed in a scented garden - the landscaping of... More
