The Winelands are a wonderful year-round destination and enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, somewhat like the South of France, which is what makes the area perfect for grape-growing. Summer in Franschhoek is the reverse of the Northern hemisphere. The best season visit is September to March when it is hot, sunny and dry. From April to August it cools down with some rain.
La Grange at La Cle des Montagnes is the three bedroom villa with a truly unique and idyllic set up, sheltered amongst the dramatic Hawequas foothills. Though the South African Winelands are internationally famous, this is one of their best kept secrets.
La Grange emanates effortless style through the prolific use of wood and timber, combined with silky creams and pastels to create a chic colonial highland lodge effect.
Throughout the seasons you will appreciate the large light windows which will allow you to watch as the vineyards blossom and bloom and then in the autumn the rich auburn colours from the local orchards. In the winter the warming interior and the crackling fire provides the ultimate romantic setting.
This villa sleeps six very comfortably with each large bedroom having its own luxurious bathroom for guests to pamper and preen. There is also a spacious open plan dining room, ideal for a glorious meal, where after getting fabulous South African delicacies from Franschhoek you can either sizzle and serve from the barbecue or make the use of the state of the art kitchen. The key ingredient though of course is a glass or two of local South African wine, which having spent the days tasting you can savour your best with a fabulous meal chez toi.
The garden is breathtaking, with different shady or sun-drenched patios in which to take in the stunning scenic view and take a dip in the pristine pool, which especially in the hot weather is a completely invaluable commodity.
A truly winning aspect is the impeccable service throughout, true tests come when service is just a glance away yet never intruding on your personal time with friends or family. This villa as well as the others are truly a diamond in the Winelands' crown, and really must not be missed.
Boschendal Estate is one of the oldest wine producers in the New World, incorporating French viticulture heritage. This is also the site of the original Cape Dutch Manor House, with history dating as early as 1685.
