This Trip Advisor review is about ‘My Peggy’s” place La Cle des Montagnes in Franschhoek- so obviously you will understand my bias towards it. BUT I have to add if there was a Trip Advisor section on the quality of the guests staying we would have written they themselves were Spectacular!
Reviewed October 20, 2013 NEW
We stayed here with our family for our wedding and hired out all 4 villas (as well as half of the village for our 100+ guests!) for 4 nights in late September. All I can say is, this is the best place I have ever stayed in! We have been around the world, stayed in 7 star hotels etc etc, but this place is simply stunning! I almost don’t want to write a review so I can keep it secret, but they are so totally worthy of all the praise they can get! Starting from Chantel and Peggy who manage the place, to all the butlers and helpers etc, each and every member of staff is a sheer delight. Nothing is too difficult, every request is met with a smile and is taken care of (we had a lot of random requests and are a very picky bunch, especially as it was a wedding) and the professionalism is really top notch. We can’t say thank you enough to all the lovely people we met at La Cle for making our wedding spectacular and unforgettable. We couldn’t have chosen a better place. Each of the 4 houses is stunning in it’s own way, and I really can’t choose a favourite, although perhaps the Gallery house has this crazy modern style that I love! And the overall setting is truly, wondrously spectacular. Anyone who has ever been to Franschhoek will testify that the village and surrounds are incredible, and La Cle is the very best within Franschhoek. I know because we literally visited every other place when looking for the right venue. I could go on and on, but I won’t. Thank you Peggy, thank you Chantel, you are both angels and it has been delightful meeting you!! This place is simply divine, there is nothing more to it.
