Maison Noir is elevated in the calming mountains above the former fishing village of Hout Bay, a 20-minute drive from Cape Town’s centre. A tranquil retreat that is completely private offers a wonderful space to relax and recuperate. Maison Noir prides itself on the exclusivity and privacy it offers. The staff are intent on providing a home-away-from-home feel - a familiar place where arriving for the first time feels as if you've always belonged.
The exclusive-use villa is privately owned and available to only one party at any given time. Designed by architect Paolo Deliperi, the Maison is rooted in the concept of the ‘kraal’, a series of small buildings which inspired this modern interpretation. Interconnected by glass passages and allowing for outside-inside living, the villa is integrated into the surrounding natural landscape. Maison Noir is like an intimate, private village, rich with natural light, koi ponds, pools and open air spaces. With four bedrooms, Maison Noir is tastefully designed for privacy and connection to the outdoors.
All bedrooms come with full en-suite bathrooms, three of them include outdoor showers and offer a loft lounge and a private workspace opening onto a terrace. The large Master Bedroom offers amazing views of the Table Mountain range and comes with an additional living area including an open fireplace as well as a spacious bathroom. The on-site manager is available to attend to guests’ every need and a private chef can be arranged.
