‘What a delight! This home is impossible to describe without floundering in a sea of adjectives. The space represents everything modern travel should aspire to – escape from the ordinary with due respect for the extraordinary. Namaste!’

Welcome to
Maison Noir
and Villa Verte!

Set on the wooded slopes above the valley of Hout Bay and in indigenous gardens, two magnificent villas (Maison Noir and Villa Verte) are a mere ten minutes from pristine Llandudno Beach and a 30-minute drive from the centre of cosmopolitan Cape Town. It’s no secret either that Cape Town’s restaurants are some of the best in the world but two of the top 10 are just up the hill on Constantia Nek, overlooking the oldest vineyards in the Cape on the Constantia wine route.

Maison Noir and Villa Verte showcase the work of some of South Africa’s most talented artists, sculptors, designers, photographers and ceramists. Guests with a keen interest in art and design will be spoilt for choice as we can arrange visits to Cape Town’s top galleries and design studios, while lovers of beautiful gardens will appreciate the rill garden with its African windmill, and the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are just around the corner.
