Magnificent Villa Arabella is set in the Arabella Estate, on South Africa’s Western Cape. Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are all within an hour’s drive; closer to home are the shops, art galleries and restaurants of Hermanus and Kleinmond, not to mention some of the finest beaches on the coast.
The exclusive Arabella Estate, known as 'Arabella', is a gated estate with an 18-hole champion golf course (rated number 2 in South Africa) and a five-star hotel, boasting two fine dining restaurants and a wellness centre and spa.
Residents of this luxury home in Western Cape have access to all of the estate's facilities and services (fees apply). They also benefit from its spectacular views of the lagoon - the largest natural lagoon in South Africa - and the mountains beyond.
If the estate is dramatic, then so is this contemporary four-bedroom luxury villa. The double-height, open-plan living area overlooks the pool and garden, and features soaring timber ceilings, rustic-chic stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. This fabulous space leads onto the pool terrace, where there is another, more casual dining area.
The drama continues on the first floor where there is a spacious lounge and bar area with contemporary sofas and tables. Sitting here as the sun sets, listening to the wildlife in the lagoon, with a glass of perfectly chilled Sauvignon Blanc, really is a unique experience.
All of the villa's bedrooms are decorated in muted, earthy shades of cream and caramel with well-chosen African artwork. As elsewhere, the floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of the abundant natural light.
There is a host of things to do in the immediate area, from mountain biking, bird watching and hiking to sailing and trout fishing. This luxury home also offers easy access to all of the must-do sites and activities on the Western Cape - the problem might well be finding time to fit them all in.
