Villa San Michele is an elegant Mediterranean-style residence perched above the Atlantic Ocean in Bantry Bay. In the shadow of the extinct Lions Head volcano, this villa blends European chic with South African personality. Benefiting from the shelter of the lion and its mane of mountains, it occupies a prime positon close to the golden sands and rocky outcrops of the beach. After idyllic days by the shore, soak up the view from your private pool or savor the magnificent sunsets from your deck.
The houses and apartments of Bantry Bay display a certain je ne sais quoi reminiscent of the French Riviera. Villa San Michele takes this to another level with three floors of opulent furnishings and magnificent views. Its baby blue walls complement the azure sky and turquoise sea while, echoing the ocean, your private pool glistens in the iridescent light. From its stylish balconies and sun-kissed decks you can enjoy 24-hour access to the sights and sounds of the Atlantic.
Filled with refined French antiques and enhanced by classic dcor, Villa San Michele is a delightful mix of the old and new. The villa centers around bright and airy living areas which flow elegantly together. Comfortable sofas and chairs nestle against a majestic ocean backdrop while a chic dining room adjoins the cool, bright kitchen. The outdoors beckons just as appealingly in the form of a spacious deck with its sheltered dining area, relaxing sun loungers and shaded seats.
The villas three beautiful bedrooms provide elegance allied to absolute comfort. The sumptuous master bedroom features a magnificent bay-windowed, ocean-facing bathroom. The views of the Atlantic are awe-inspiring and are matched by those in the other rooms. After a superb nights sleep, throw open the doors to your balcony and breathe in the scent of the ocean. In the evening, catch the last rays of the sun as they linger over the waves.
Bantry Bay is set apart from other Cape destinations by its lack of sea breeze and boasts many wind-free days. It achieves this with help from the growling countenance of Lions Head, the shadow effect producing many languid days in the sun. From Villa San Michele you can glimpse Robben Island and youre also just a quick drive from vibrant Sea Point and cultured Camps Bay. Close by, the attractions of Cape Town and the magnificent Table Mountain demand a visit.
