Views are always a key criterion when selecting a villa, but this villa’s views really are showstoppingly beautiful. Travelling along the gravel road that climbs ever higher up the imposing Hottentots Holland mountain range, past bucolic vineyards cooled by coastal breezes, you just know you’re heading somewhere special. And when the journey finally ends at this gorgeous estate, and you’re greeted by the dramatic sweeping views of the entire False Bay coastline, you know you’ve arrived.
With craggy mountains that plunge into a glistening ocean seemingly as far as the eye can see, it’s a view that captures the majesty of the Cape, softened by the vineyard carpet at your feet, planted in a terroir that consistently produces award-winning wines. A modern incarnation of the African farmhouse, offering sprawling easy-living spaces, built to make the most of the local lifestyle – a great space to entertain, kick back, cool off, get comfortable and really, really relax. Whoever said it’s the journey that counts, never ended it here.
