Amid the picturesque winelands of the Western Cape’s historic Paarl/Franschhoek Valley, framed by the majestic Drakenstein mountains and the famous Paarl Rock, lies an estate beyond compare: This is Boschenmeer.
Incredible views over the winelands, a relaxed atmosphere and a tranquil riverside setting are combined with luxury, privacy and security, to create an estate that, undisputedly, has it all.

Boschenmeer is an eco-sensitive development. The natural environment has been preserved whilst creating a suitable setting for human residence and activity.
The estate has many water features including a large lake with two islands and a bird sanctuary, which is home to an abundance of bird life such as the Pied Kingfisher, Sacred Ibis and the White Cattle Egret.
The estate is home to many old trees.
A further one thousand indigenous trees and shrubs have been planted, thus attracting even more bird species to the area.

The Cape Vernacular architecture is based on the deeply rooted history of the region’s Cape Dutch and Victorian architectural heritage, together with the Tuscan influences inherited from the Italian World War 1 Prisoners Of War who built Du Toitskloof Pass, and then settled in the Paarl/Franschhoek valley.
The combination of elements taken from these three styles has created a subtle, refreshing and timeless architecture that reflects the history and culture of this valley.



Val de Vie offers its residents an exceptional country lifestyle. With state-of-the-art security, dazzling scenery and a variety of leisure activities, the estate presents the perfect balance between nature and world-class modern living. Val de Vie is also conveniently close to the Airport and Cape Town each being within a 40 minute drive and several excellent schools, such as Bridge House in Franschhoek and Paarl Gym and Paarl Boys in Paarl to mention but a few.

French Provencial and Cape Colonial architecture sets an elegant tone in this luxurious yet laid back development, complemented by the spectacular beauty of the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley.

Those who enjoy the finer things in life will delight in the culinary offerings of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.
