Casa Labia

Casa Labia is a cultural centre that is a national monument, built in 1929 to mirror the beauty of 18th century Venice. Casa Labia is the former Muizenberg residence of Count and Countess Natale Labia, following a complete two-year restoration by the family, this much-loved national monument was opened to the public on 5 May 2010 as South Africa’s most exquisite multi-functional cultural centre.

It is located in the seaside village of Kalk Bay, the picturesque cliffs of the mountains rising steeply behind sloping streets and avenues.

The on-site restaurant is called the Cucina Labia and is a great place to sit down for some brunch, lunch, dinner or a charming afternoon tea.

A musical accompaniment is often present, making sure to include both modern and classical works. Casa Labia also serves as a venue for weddings, film shoots and corporate functions.
