Despite challenging macro-economic factors and the ongoing Western Cape drought, almost all of Val de Vie Estate’s developer stands have been sold out. The intention to sell 2000 stands on the super estate of which Val de Vie, Val de Vie Phase 2 and Pearl Valley form part, has shown exceptional growth of over 200% over the past five years. Less than 100 developer stands are available on South Africa’s number one residential estate, as rated by New World Wealth in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

 “The accelerated rate of sales can largely be attributed to the estate’s reputation as the safest in Africa, the world class lifestyle on offer and the diverse property portfolio. The scale of Val de Vie Estate’s security and lifestyle options are unrivalled elsewhere in South African estate living,” says Ryk Neethling, Marketing Director and Shareholder at Val de Vie Estate.

What started in 2004 as a polo and wine estate, is today an award-winning lifestyle estate offering one of the top five golf courses in the country – the Jack Nicklaus Signature Pearl Valley golf course. Hurlingham standard polo fields, the L’Huguenot wine cellar, The Valley restaurant, The Polo Club restaurant, Camelot Spa, the Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis and 42 km trails to explore on foot, bicycle or horseback add to the luxury countryside lifestyle.

Traveling across the brand-new Berg River Bridge will soon result in drastically reduced traveling times to Cape Town International Airport, the Mother City and adjacent Stellenbosch. The Berg River Bridge has a new gate house connecting the estate to the R45 Simondium road and will officially open on 21 June 2018.

The construction of the bridge over the Berg River is the first private bridge of its scale in South African residential development. Val de Vie Estate has significantly contributed to the economic development in the Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch areas since its inception, and the valuable addition of the new Berg River Bridge will further positively impact this rapidly growing sector of our country.


“We foresee that the demand and value of properties on the greater Val de Vie Estate will be positively influenced by the opening of our new bridge, and that the last remaining developer stands will sell out fast,” remarked Ryk Neethling.


For individuals 60 years and older, Val de Vie Evergreen is a valuable opportunity for retirement living as it assures professional care and world class security in one of the most beautiful and secure settings in South Africa. Phase One of Val de Vie Evergreen is 75% sold out.
