The vision of these immaculately presented Villas and Country Lodge and the haven of quality hospitality they represent came from international entrepreneur and Franschhoek resident, Michael Pawlowski, who identified his personal needs when travelling with his wife and four children.


Located on a working vineyard, La Clé Country Lodge offers 5 double en-suite bedrooms, flowing interiors, a large country kitchen, communal dining area, private pool and terrace with expansive vineyards views, tennis court and heli-pad. It is managed by two professional chefs and available per room or exclusively. With the same concierge service of the villas, La Clé des Montagnes remains the best secret in Franschhoek!


The owners of La Clé des Montagnes are foundation sponsors of The Kusasa Project, a local community organization that serves 1500 children in 5 local schools in the underprivileged community of Franschhoek. Through their sponsorship of The Franschhoek Art & Conservation Route, La Clé supports Poached Rhino – an organization dedicated to increasing security and legal protection of rhinos.
