An impressive avant-garde villa located in the South African countryside
Villa Galerie is part of the historic La Clé des Montagnes homestead located within walking distance from the Franschhoek village centre. This vacation property is nestled amidst an idyllic landscape of breath-taking beauty with views overlooking the lush vineyards, imposing mountains, and pretty plum orchards.
Set within the working farm, guests have access to the estate’s helipad, tennis court, and barbecue and picnic area. However, the villa itself enjoys full privacy and security.
Guests can enjoy the sunshine from their private garden with lush, manicured lawns and swimming pool flanked by sun loungers. The shaded veranda is ideal for relaxed al fresco meals or catching up on a holiday read in the comfortable lounges. There’s also a large hammock on the lawns, perfect for an afternoon siesta.
The avant-garde interiors of the villa transmit a powerful and vibrant energy through saturated blocks of colour mixed with an exclusive contemporary art collection featuring pieces by the famous Swedish artist Bengt Karl Erik Lindström. In fact, the name of the property originates from its art gallery which highlights these expressive abstracts to create a dramatic and engaging interior ambience.
Guests can relax in the spacious lounge, warm up by the crackling fireplace on cooler evenings, and cook up tasty feasts in the modern, fully-equipped kitchen.
Up to four guests can be accommodated in the two well-appointed double bedrooms with en-suite facilities and direct veranda access.
Villa Galerie provides the perfect backdrop where to explore Franschhoek, known as South Africa’s culinary capital due to its award-winning restaurants and wineries. The villa is a veritable oasis of relaxation and comfort where guests will have all their wishes fulfilled by the dedicated team of staff.
