LA CLÉ DES MONTAGNES ... your key to the mountains


Living in Franschhoek, I am in awe of our beautiful landscape. I am also very fortunate to have one of the smaller gems of our Portfolio, LA CLÉ DES MONTAGNES, conveniently located down the road from my office and home. This home-away experience epitomises all that is good about village life and living like a local. Here you can slow down, kick off your shoes and immerse into the rhythm of the good life.

Extending over two locations, we have the VILLAGE and LODGE, each with breathtaking mountain views and within an easy walk of the main street.

The highlight of a stay is most certainly the La Clé Shared Table. Their chefs passionately create homemade delights and abundant spreads for guests to enjoy together. Sharing a meal creates a sense of community and what better place to experience this than in Franschhoek, the culinary capital of South Africa.

Mozambique

 

WHAT WE LOVE: Besides the fact that most of our team are beach fanatics and keen scuba divers, we love the fact that Mozambique is still rather undiscovered. Our Portfolio includes two amazing beach escapes in the Bazaruto Archipelago. Visitors who combine a safari with the more commercial beaches of Mauritius have no idea on how much they are missing out. Mozambique is renowned for its relaxed, tropical atmosphere and exceptionally friendly people, but by far its biggest draw cards are its expansive beaches, secluded islands and spectacular marine life. With a history of limited coastal development combined with beautiful beaches and amazing numbers of whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, turtles, coral fish and reefs. The setting for this experience is hard to beat.
