Gravity defying, ultra-modern architecture and breathtaking Atlantic Ocean views define Villa Nouveau.
Designed for discerning luxury travellers and offering all the benefits of being attached to an exclusive small hotel coupled with life’s ultimate luxuries – complete privacy and discreet, highly personalised service. Villa Nouveau is ideally suited to families or groups of friends.
Villa Nouveau is the quintessential coastal retreat. It has an exquisite, ocean-view location in Bantry Bay, one of the most sought-after residential suburbs in Cape Town. Sheltered from the prevailing Southeaster wind in summer, it offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the dramatic mountain scenery characteristic of this stretch of the rugged and beautiful Cape Peninsula. With accommodation for up to six people, spacious entertainment and relaxation areas and a private infinity pool, the villa epitomises the glamorous beach lifestyle for which Cape Town has become world famous. Located alongside an exclusive private art collection and offering an interactive wine experience right on your doorstep, as well as a luxury spa.
The first level of Villa Nouveau comprises an inviting central corridor leading to a guest bathroom, study area, and private cinema. There are three luxuriously appointed bedrooms each with an extensive open-plan dressing room, bathroom and separate W/C. The rooms are named Sea Point, Clifton and Bantry Bay, according to their geographical orientation and outlook. Each bedroom extends outdoors onto a private terrace with wonderful views.
The top floor (street level) includes a glass-walled entrance foyer that opens up into light-filled living, dining and entertainment areas decorated in soft, soothing sea tones with natural stone and unembellished wood finishes. Fold-away, floor-to-ceiling glass doors on two sides seamlessly integrate the indoor and outdoor entertainment areas, infinity pool, and spectacular ocean views. To the right of the entrance foyer is an open-plan kitchen designed for social, interactive cooking equipped with a large central island, sleek timber cupboards, a separate scullery and walk-in cold room. The kitchen may be closed off from the dining area by a sliding panel. A personal chef is on call to create breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. The emphasis is on fresh, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Any dietary needs or restrictions, food allergies or children’s meals may be discussed with the chef.
