New! Villa La Rive, Franschhoek - South Africa.

When the owners first bought La Rive in 1993, it was barely recognisable from what it has become today.They spent the better part of 2 years renovating and developing their dream Winelands home before completion by Easter 1995.

Today, La Rive has been transformed into an incredibly warm and homely villa that resembles a marriage of colonial English and traditional Afrikaans / Dutch heritage. The sounds of water from various features around the grounds will transport you to a tranquil hideaway just off Franschhoek’s Main Road. Considering it’s only a block off this road, you’ll be amazed that you can’t see any forms of human habitation from all parts of the garden, swimming pool and outside verandahs.

A marvelously eclectic mix of Victorian, Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture and furniture, as well as numerous pieces from famous South African artists such as
Neil Rodger, Gregoire Boonzaier, Edward Wolfe and Dylan Lewis on display, illustrates Brett’s passion for art collecting.
He adds, “It’s how I imagined the house would have evolved if the family who built it had lived here forever.”

Step outside onto the spacious, airy patios and marvel at the sights before you. An inviting swimming pool will provide you with a refreshing respite from Franschhoek’s hot summer days and if you were to venture further, you would stumble upon an enchanted, lush garden that could very well be the one from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s “The Secret Garden”. With numerous paths leading to various alcoves, benches and lawns, you’ll be able to disappear for some quiet time, meditation, or even a romantic moment.

Each room has a personality and character of its own, and no two of the antique bedside tables are alike. A live-in chef and butler will provide you with 5-star continental breakfast and world class service, complete with all the luxuries and amenities one would expect from a villa like this.

The property is also available to be rented out for small scale weddings and photo shoots, the backdrops and gardens providing the perfect setting for either.

No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.

What happens if the property becomes unavailable after I reserve? click to open

Jamie R. - Mirabelle May 26, 2022

Isle Blue was so easy to work with especially trying to book from the United States. We went for our honeymoon and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! Our concierge‘s Mehdi was on point for anything we needed, reservations, suggestions on where to go and booking excursions. We will definitely be making our stay at Mirabelle Villa a yearly trip!

The Villa was more like a compound, it was extravagant with the best views you could imagine. We felt safe and at home, thanks to the amazing staff we were provided! Dania The housekeeper was amazing and our concierge‘s Mehdi couldn’t have been any better!


David - Mille Fleurs July 24, 2021

I loved staying in Mille Fleurs. I only have positive things to say about it. First of all, the house and the view are absolutely stunning! I couldn’t believe how well stocked the kitchen was. They had everything that you could possibly need. Heather, who cleans and takes care of the house, knows most everything and does an amazing job! We also enjoyed walking throughout the neighborhood. It’s a great workout with all of the hills! I do hope to return one day…I miss the house snd the view already!

We had a fabulous time in a fabulous house. Everyone involved was so helpful and great from beginning to end! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much!


Amy - Capri - TCI July 16, 2021

Our stay at Isle Blue's Villa Capri was absolutely perfect! The villa was beautiful and exactly as shown in the photos online - it was super clean and included everything you could need on vacation: fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, beach towels, bluetooth speaker, pool floats, a kayak, paddle board, a gas grill, wifi - the list goes on! We woke up to the stunning views of the turquoise water each morning right from our bed - what a view! You can quickly walk down to the beach via a short path of stones shaped like sand dollars which was so cute. The bay feels mostly private but there are a few beach vendors towards the far end where we were able to grab a quick bite and a drink - including fresh coconut drinks that are made right in front of us! We ventured to a few other beaches (Grace Bay and Blue Hills) and each time we came back to Sapodilla Bay, it reminded us how much we loved this little slice of paradise. Julian was our house manager and he was extremely helpful from the moment we landed at the airport. We felt so welcomed by the Isle Blue staff which was refreshing as our travel experience had been pretty hectic. I highly recommend booking your next stay with Isle Blue!


Tyler - Beach Cake July 12, 2021

Our experience with Isle Blue was first class. Communication was great and the villa was just as described. Highly recommend!


Karen - Phoenix at Tryall July 12, 2021

Simply amazing - great location, professional and kind staff, well kept facilities.

Very smooth process with Isle Blue.


WHAT OUR GUESTS ARE SAYING

"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
