La Clé Lodge

Traditional elegance

With interiors designed by Jacques Erasmus of Hemelhuijs, modern styling meets the classic charm of a traditional Cape Dutch home at the La Clé Lodge. Flowing interiors, high ceilings and ample living areas are enhanced by charming accents and the rustic beauty of traditional materials.

Spend intimate time together at the Lodge with our per-room availability, or reserve the lodge as a private villa with all 5 en-suite bedrooms for family holidays, group getaways or special occasions. Nestled on a working vineyard in the center of Franschhoek with expansive views, tennis court, putt and chip lawn and heli-pad, the Lodge is managed by Melanie and Scott Shepherd – two highly experienced chefs with inspired menus, hearty homestyle meals and finer dining options. Join us to experience the lifestyle of Franschhoek and be enveloped by warm hospitality.
