Tripadvisor Review


The vision of these immaculately presented properties 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.


Set amidst vineyards on the edge of Franschhoek, only a short walk from the heart of the village, La Clé des Montagnes can be booked either by room or per exclusive-use villa. Rooms are spacious and private with incredible mountain views (its name means 'the key to the mountains'). La Clé des Montagnes is the best-kept 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, utilizing up to 60 volunteers and operating both in-school and after-school programs. These programs range from feeding, literacy, sport, life skills to art, drama, chess and ballet. They focus on disadvantaged children, to offer activities which schools are unable to offer.
