Why we recommend La Clé des Montagnes

“Prepare to be welcomed by a tranquil setting in a vineyard and plum orchard framed by rugged mountains in Franschhoek, less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town. This privately owned complex was first established by French Huguenots in 1692 and today offers distinguished heritage, ambience, space and luxury for couples, families and friends. Take note: the gourmet dinners are divine.”
