Surrounded by the magnificent mountains of the Franschhoek valley, The Colonial villa is a luxurious countryside escape. The rich patterns and fabrics of the villa pay homage to a fusion of east and north African aesthetics. Nestled in picturesque vineyards and plum orchards only a short stroll from the centre of Franschhoek village, The Colonial is just 45 minutes from Cape Town.

This villa is perfect for groups of friends or families who want a flexible, independent-minded holiday in one of the Cape’s finest wine regions. Featuring 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, expansive terrace and ample room to entertain, it is a luxurious retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It can sleep up to 8 guests, each bedroom boasting its own different style and an en-suite bathroom and provides breakfast and the services of a private butler.

The spacious central lounge, with foldaway glass doors, opens onto the front and back garden with private pool and mountain views. The living area is designed to make all discerning guests feel welcome in the ultimate comfort and luxury.  The lavish wooden dining table on the broad veranda outside is the perfect place to dine with friends, with VH1 playing background tunes on the flat screen TV inside and the night’s stars winking over us. There is a team of staff to cater to the guests’ every wish, including concierge, daily servicing and turndown.

The Colonial’s panoramic views of the vineyards and mountains combined with the contemporary African feel create a truly memorable experience.
