At home

With its profoundly tranquil and private atmosphere, Maison Noir is a magical hideaway.

We guarantee you’ll relish every relaxing second you spend at home. Even though it is situated just 30 minutes’ drive from the centre of Cape Town, its glorious sense of seclusion and remoteness is enhanced by the seamless flow of the indoor-outdoor spaces and the sheer beauty of its indigenous gardens and surrounding mountain views.

To ensure you have a top-notch experience, the home is complete with a beautiful swimming pool (heated on request), entertainment areas, private cinema and stocked wine cellar for when you want to relax and cocoon at home. All this is rounded off by the staff members, who will treat you like royalty, with warm personal service that is always attentive yet utterly discreet.

Maison poolside

Celebrate South Africa’s sunshine lifestyle beside our sparkling swimming pool, fed by our private well point or borehole. Spend at least one day poolside. Take a refreshing plunge in the heated pool. Nap on a sunbed or relax under the shaded poolside spaces. Enjoy breakfast or a late lunch on the pool deck. Sip cocktails. And at the end of the day, savour the flavours of a traditional South African braai (BBQ) at sunset.

In-home dining

The Maison kitchen library is fully stocked with inspiring cookbooks, and the professional pantry can be filled with your choice of ingredients on request. We take the pleasure of food seriously and will help you to source the finest local purveyors of meat, cheese and baked goods or fare from organic vegetable farms or our herb garden.

Our well-equipped chef’s kitchen makes cooking at home a pleasure, but if you are in the mood to be indulged completely, why not request our delicious in-house continental breakfasts or ask us to arrange a private chef to prepare dinners during your stay? Your selected chef will create menus based on your personal tastes. Additional fees for meals are discussed and approved by you in advance. We recommend you take advantage of our sunset barbecues beside the pool.

We can arrange anything from a cooking class with a local chef to meeting the makers and small-batch producers of artisanal produce and beverages; or food pairings with fine South African wines.
