Maison Noir is a serene space, totally private, set amongst magnificent mountain ranges high above Hout Bay. Maison Noir is the luxury to dream. More than a place to stay it is a familiar place where arriving for the first time feels as if you've always belonged. Time slows, the sky expands, and the culture of our creative community welcomes you.

The exclusive use villa is privately owned and opened its doors in early 2015. 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. At Maison Noir, service starts at the moment of booking and continues throughout the guests stay. A dedicated team including a private chef offers full concierge services and attends to the guests every need.

Both interior and exterior design details draw on the African, French, Indonesian, and global traditions that have defined Cape Town for centuries. Signifying the four elements, sky, water, fire and earth, the result is a destination where guests at once feel private and secluded as if one is at the ends of the earth while only being moments away from Hout Bay, the legendary city of Cape Town and the renowned Cape Wine region.


Maison Noir is set amongst magnificent mountain ranges high above Hout Bay, only half an hour outside of Cape Town and a mere 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. Due to its remote yet easy access location, Maison Noir offers a maximum degree of privacy whilst being close to the vibey city of Cape Town and its attractions.
