Selection of luxurious villas from the sublimely luxurious, to family friendly to seaside stunners
We offer luxury villas throughout South Africa, as well as a select few in Malawi & Mozambique. As in Cape Town, they range from the sublimely luxurious, to family friendly to seaside retreats.
These villas, cottages or two-bedroom suites are spacious and comfortable rather than architectural icons. The key factor is that your family will feel relaxed here. These are not modest ‘self-catering apartments” either. They offer a home away from home – with the level of luxury that suits your family. Options range from 2 to 4 bedrooms, ideal for larger family groups. Or two families travelling together.
