Sophisticated style and breathtaking beauty

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. 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. We welcome you to soak up the valley and enjoy a truly memorable stay in the heart of Franschhoek.

Design, service, tranquility and space


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. On 7 August 2018, La Clé des Montagnes launched La Clé Village offering room and suite accommodation in Manoir, Grange and Colonial. Galerie remains our ultra-chic 2-bedroom fully-serviced villa, complete with a private garden and pool. Guests come together at Manoir, our reception and library, for exceptional meals prepared by our chefs, open living spaces and to enjoy the grand garden.

Each space has been given a unique personality. Discover a stay to suit, not only your needs, but your personal style where every wish is made manifest by our treasured team. 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.



La Clé Village

La Clé Lodge

With design and finishes 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 in any of the five exquisitely comfortable en-suite bedrooms, or book it as a villa for a family and friends getaway.

Nestled on a working vineyard in the centre of Franschhoek with expansive views, tennis court, putt and chip lawn and helipad, La Clé is managed by Melanie and Scott Shepherd – two highly experienced chefs with inspired menus, hearty home-style meals and finer dining options. Join us to experience the lifestyle of Franschhoek and be enveloped by warm hospitality.
