The House

A love of life and a life of curiosity are what inspired the owners and creators of Maison Noir in South Africa's Cape. Arriving in Cape Town for the first time, one is instantly transported — the light and air, the faces and feeling — it is a place rooted in centuries of being ‘right here and now’. Cape Town has always held a comfort for travelers and collectors of experiences.

Designed through a collaboration with architect Paolo Deliperi, the Maison is rooted in the concept of the ‘kraal’ — a series of small buildings — inspired this modern interpretation, with interconnecting glass passages, and outside — inside living areas. Integrated into the surrounding natural landscape this small private ‘village’ is rich with natural light, koi ponds, pools, and open air spaces. 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 — what results is a destination at once feeling 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 boasts four luxury rooms, each uniquely designed to meld seamlessly with it's natural surroundings. The finest of linens, local art, and perfectly appointed furniture leaves no detail unattended to. Each accommodation has en suite facilities, including an outdoor shower, and french doors leading out into Maison's beautiful garden, pool and intertwining coy ponds.
