At home

Tucked away in the forest above Villa Maison Noir, the architecturally striking Villa Verte is a contemporary hillside retreat.

Enveloped by a canopy of trees, Villa Verte offers the same level of style and soul as Maison Noir, but we think that guests will ‘feel like they’re living in a treehouse, with endless views of nature and mountains all around them,’ say the owners. Situated just 30 minutes’ drive from the centre of Cape Town, Villa Verte offers absolute privacy and serenity combined with a sense of  understated luxury. Its global appeal is enhanced by the curated works of art throughout the contemporary space. Strong on both architecture and design, its interiors are filled with an eclectic collection of African art, photography and sculpture which is widely appreciated by discerning guests who have travelled the world.

The wow factor, however, lies in the fact that this beautifully curated space, which includes a bespoke range of furniture, is equally blissful to live in throughout the year. In summer, its indoor-outdoor flow is lends itself to yoga sessions in the forested garden, relaxing around the pool (heated on request) or entertaining friends long into balmy summer evenings, or cooking delicious meals and curling up with a good book on wintry nights in front of the double-sided fireplace.

All this is rounded off by the staff members, who will treat you like royalty, with warm and personal service that is always attentive yet utterly discreet.
