Louis Group (Africa): one of the largest private Property companies in South Africa
Louis Group (Africa) is a family company which was established in 1914 and over nine decades. Throughout nine decades in business, the Louis family have consistently applied the principles of Christian and family values upon which all their interests are founded. Although property-related activities and investments remain at the core of the business, their highly relationship-minded and solution-driven approach has led to the extension of the Group's interests through strategic acquisitions into Financial Services, Technology and hotels.

Hidden away in a shady, peaceful corner of the Stellenbosch in the magnificent Cape Winelands lies The Devon Valley Hotel surrounded by its own working vineyard. SylvanVale Vineyards has produced numerous award-winning wines, which are almost exclusively available at the Group’s hotels. Throughout its history, dating back to 1947, the Devon Valley Hotel has been frequented by travellers and casual visitors. The Louis Group acquired the property in 2003 and quickly brought the hotel up to its current award-winning standards through renovations, refurbishments and innovative management. The hotel boasts seven versatile conference venues suitable for a variety of corporate and private functions.
