We stayed at La Clé des Montagnes after attending the opening, the hotel consist of four villas located in the town of Franschhoek, gastronomical capital of South Africa. La Clé des Montagnes is nestled into the valley carpeted by vines and backed by breathtaking mountain views, yet we could stroll to the town square that took us 5 minutes. Our villa Le Manoir used to be the original manor house built in 1820 – lit fireplaces and an enormous private pool, a kitchen fitted for the best chef that we did not use as our villa is serviced by an incredible Malawian man named Frank who used to be the butler at Ellerman Villa. The villa we had was beyond extravagant for one couple, but perfect for a family or friends travelling together—with so many wonderful spaces to use while on holiday. A very special hotel and a magical retreat in the heart of the Franschhoek wine lands but removed from the hustle and bustle of the main street.
