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.

Seychelles

1500km east of mainland East Africa lies an archipelago of 115 islands collectively known as Seychelles. The outer islands, with a land area of 220 km2 make up almost half of the land area of Seychelles and 2% of its population. These outer islands comprise 9 important bird areas, the largest population of giant tortoises, nesting grounds for turtles, over 180 bird species, 320 species of coral, over 1000 fish species, spinner dolphins, humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, melon-headed whales and even the elusive dugong.

Within the outer islands is the Alphonse Group, the coral islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier, about 1 hour's flight and 250km from Mahé. Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé you find the Aldabra Group, including Cosmoledo and Astove Atolls. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or subsided partially beneath the water. The lagoon forms over the volcanic crater or caldera while the higher rim remains above water or at shallow depths that permit the coral to grow and form the reefs.

It is amidst this vast oceanic playground that you will find Blue Safari Seychelles.
