With majestic mountain ranges rising around it, this private estate has a serene forest setting high above Hout Bay. Maison Noir is an escape from it all and a place of utter rejuvenation.
Architect Paolo Deliperi designed around the concept of the ‘kraal’ and created a series of small buildings. These are all linked by glass passages offering a superb sense of connection between the interior and exterior. The villa has plenty of natural light and large doors opening on to outdoor courtyards and patios. Koi ponds, pools and comfortable nooks add to the serenity and draw guests to curl up with one of the many books around the house and simply relax.

The four bedrooms all have full en-suite bathrooms and open on to a terrace that leads to the sprawling garden. The Master bedroom is a spacious haven with a private living room and open fireplace, and an en-suite bathroom with breathtaking views of Table Mountain. The other three bedrooms have outdoor showers and offer a loft lounge and a private workspace. Two of these loft lounges have twin beds for accommodating additional guests. The villa can accommodate a maximum of 12 people.
The interior design is a fusion of African, French, Indonesian, and global traditions that have defined Cape Town for centuries. The spacious lounge has a fireplace and opens on to the pool terrace on one side and the barbecue terrace on another. Doors lead to the open-plan dining room and kitchen where guests can watch the chef at work preparing incredible culinary delights. The dining table is set in front of an open fireplace for cosy meals on chilly evenings. For balmy summer nights there are French doors on either end of the room, one set opening on to a Koi pond and the other to a patio. There is a separate TV lounge leading on to a deck overlooking the forest of trees and a private cinema next to the wine cellar.
The swimming pool terrace has plenty of comfortable seating and the garden beyond has sun loungers for reclining in the beautiful surroundings. The barbecue terrace is covered and has a large dining table for al fresco meals. The ponds weave through the terraces separated by stepping stones.
The dedicated team at Maison Noir offers full concierge services and ensure a stay of exceptional standards. The estate is only 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and half an hour from the city centre. There are a variety of restaurants in close proximity and the beautiful Hout Bay beach is a short drive away. Due to its remote yet easy access location, Maison Noir offers a maximum degree of privacy whilst being close to the vibrant city of Cape Town and the Mother City’s array of attractions.
