Who We Are


The Val de Vie Development company and Val de Vie estate residents are deeply engaged in the broader community and know that the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley is life giving for all, not just the privileged few that are fortunate enough to live on the super-estate.

Founded in 2015, the Val de Vie Foundation is a faith-based initiative which belongs to all on the super-estate and its aim is to provide a better life for all in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley.

“To leave a legacy that will have a lasting, positive impact on the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley as a whole.”Martin Venter, CEO & Founder of the Val de Vie Group of Companies


To help create a better life for all in the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley by strategically investing the Foundation’s resources to demonstrate through action how we can help transform lives and restore the future


Val de Vie Foundation funds youth and leadership development as well as projects of a social/spiritual nature.

The Foundation follows a holistic development approach in which it also offers mentorship and funding to budding entrepreneurs from disadvantaged communities to create much needed new jobs.


We believe that only by measuring, can we manage our overarching task to help create a better life for all.
