Roxane Lebrun

Founder and General Director

Based in Cape Town since 2009, it’s after establishing Ekima Afrika Travel that VillaOCap came into my mind.

Entrepreneur and concerned about offering you the best qualitative service wherever you are, my passion for travelling and all the experiences encountered during years on the field enabled me to develop those two beautiful projects today. An exciting adventure that I’ll be delighted to share with you during your stay with us in Cape Town. See you soon!

My favourite house: Ekima Villa with no doubt. It’s from there that everything started. 8 years already that I have been mending that house step by step. You will feel a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Everything is made for the traveler to feel at home. A library with travel books, a petanque court, a boma (outdoor fire place) a foosball, a hammock and a kayak for chilled times on the lake.

Valérie Llopis

Manager & Consultant

After spending 10 years in the incentive/events industry in France, I needed to open new horizons and take up new challenges. And this is how I dropped my luggage in Cape Town!

I landed in 2014 at the peak of the African continent and started managing a few houses for private owners around the city. It enabled me to create a beautiful portfolio as well as a rich book of contacts.

I then decided to join the VillaOCap team to share my knowledge and expertise. The goal? Bring a qualitative and exclusive service to our travelers visiting this beautiful region of the world!

My favourite house: Fresh Hayre! I like the fact that it is located in the neighbourhood I love and live in: Hout Bay. Really unique, this wooden house has a feeling of a tree house which can host huge family. Located on the hill, it offers a stunning view of the bay and you can even walk to town and shops. Only 5min from the ocean and not further from the nearby mountains... What else?

Bianca Classen

Consultant

I’m just a simple girl born and raised in Cape Town, you know the shy type. Hahaha joking. I am FUN loving and super bubbly. They don’t call me the sunshine of the team for nothing. And always full of smiles.

I’ve always been a people’s person and therefore always been in the hospitality industry. From being a hostess in a restaurant, and now to hosting and planning holidays in our amazing houses. I do not see myself in anything other than in the tourism industry.

N’oubliez pas, je suis née ici ce qui veut dire que je connais le Cap comme ma poche… Mais j’aime partager les bonnes adresses alors...

My favourite house: Secret Garden is a charming home and is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has a great little viewing deck attached to the house and is so perfect to enjoy a little early morning coffee or a yoga session to start the day. Whether it be watching the city come alive in the morning or just enjoying the evening light of the city, it is great for every moment. This 2-bedroom home has such a great vibe from its art loving lounge, to the cute little simplistic rooms as well as the perfect edition of the hammock right outside the second bedroom. And last but not least the garden, that I can spend forever and a day in. To die for.

Céline Charles

Communication Manager

After working in the Marketing and Communication industry within different sectors, my curiosity took over and I decided to leave France. I listened to this little internal voice whispering me to take a chance on the African continent.

Since I arrived in Cape Town in October 2013, not a day goes by where I don’t discover something new. A cosmopolitan city that I like to call the “New York” of South Africa. The opportunities and ambiance is similar but here you’ve got a turquoise ocean and the mountain in one single place!

My job in VillaOCap is to share with you the vibrant life of the Mother City! Discoveries, encounters, crushes, team lives, best locations and current events… Let’s meet on the blog and on our social networks to stay tuned before, during and after your stay!

My favourite house: Bischopscourt! Its tranquillity, the shady garden, its swimming pool... And when the sun is up, the exterior with Provencal resemblance reminds me of the South of France, where I am from. This is also that side that I like in Cape Town. The idea of travelling the world in one single day if you wish. Through a smell, a sound and architecture... And in Bischopscourt I find myself back, in 5 mins time, at home… then, a few seconds later, here I am, in front of the majestic Table Mountain… on my way to have a glass at Cape to Cuba, a bar with a South American air. Wow! Early stage of teleportation… I can’t stop saying it, this city is magic! Come over to see this!
