Things to do
Arriving at the Owner’s Villa, you’ll find the mind-expanding views, peaceful atmosphere and promise of great food and wine enough to allow yourself to sink into a padded lounger poolside and begin to unwind. With attentive service which seems telepathic, it really is the place to relax and be looked after. If you need further pampering, ask your butler to book you into the spa for an African botanical candle massage, where you can blend your own botanical scrub sourced from the garden.
Be sure to leave time for the main event: wine tasting in the elegant Wine Lounge with a wine tutor. Sample Delaire Graff’s finest vintages alongside locally sourced charcuterie and cheese. Back at the Owner’s Villa take yourself on a tour of Laurence Graff’s favourite artists on show within your home including outstanding African artists such as Yves Dana and Jabu Nala.
Set over two floors, the Owner’s Villa has four large bedrooms, each furnished to a very high standard. Extremely spacious and elegant, the bedrooms come with their own dressing rooms, walk-in wardrobes and bathrooms hewn from marble. Particularly special are the private terraces with shady iroko wood pergolas facing panoramic views.
Food & Drink
At the Owner’s Villa, all meals are provided for you to enjoy either al fresco under the shady loggia or within the smart dining room, alongside impressive art and a flickering fire. Peruse menus with the chef to create your perfect meals, or as it suits you, leave it in the very capable hands of your team – the skillful chef, private butler and personal concierge. We love the ritual of canapes and champagne served at sunset, celebrating the day’s close over gold-tinged mountain views. As you might expect, drinking wine is taken seriously here – spend time in your walk-in wine cellar to choose your preferred vintage.
What Stands Out
We certainly think this villa makes an alluring intersection between world-class wines, soul-stirring views and absolute serenity in a gorgeous part of of the winelands. The intriguing aspect of Laurence Graff’s personal art collection makes this a cut above. Being able to admire famous art works in the comfort of your own home is a true luxury.
Those with a discerning eye will appreciate all that the Delaire Graff Estate has to offer. Certainly, oenophiles will love getting under the skin of the estate’s wine-making processes and its results, yet a family would also be extremely content and well looked after in this beautiful and peaceful corner of Cape Winelands. This private space, with its own infinity pool, jacuzzi, steam room and gym is ideal for those that like a high standard of living.
