Val de Vie encapsulates luxury and comfortable family living. Efficient planning and use of space were key aspects that were factored into the design of the estate. Every square metre was optimised thereby maximising functionality with views of the magnificent surrounding environment.


Surrounded by three awe-inspiring mountain ranges, Val de Vie falls within the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, nestled between historic farms and taking in the natural splendour of the Cape Floral Kingdom, which also entices visitors from across the globe.

Locals and tourists to the region enjoy Franschhoek’s charming European ambiance and its delectable cuisine, which has placed the area on the map as the gastronomic capital of South Africa.

Val de Vie’s proximity to Cape Town International Airport and to Cape Town itself, both less than 40 minutes away, makes it easy to experience some of South Africa’s finest offerings. This includes a wide range of shopping malls, nature and scenic parks as well as night life; including some of the Cape’s finest and most pristine beaches within easy reach.
