About Wine Estate Accommodation
Just 70km outside of Cape Town, the Cape Winelands has often been compared to California’s Napa Valley but the two regions are quite different. South Africa’s oldest wine route meanders through the quaint towns of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Helderberg and Franschhoek and is a popular destination for first-time and seasoned travellers to the country. Travellers who love great food and wine are welcome here as the wine estates offer a great vantage point from which to explore the wine route – but also, to experience life on a working farm. When exploring the Cape Winelands wine route, it’s often possible to meet the winemakers themselves, allowing for a personal experience.
Wine estates are one of the most idyllic types of accommodations in South Africa as guests can really immerse themselves in the wine farm’s way of life. Tour wine cellars, participate in bespoke wine tastings and treat yourself to the best restaurants in the Cape Winelands. Perfect for families with children, honeymooners or groups, the winelands in South Africa offers adrenaline-pumping activities from cycling, hiking and quad biking as well as gentle walks in the vineyards, world-renowned wine tastings, meeting extraordinary sommeliers and exploring the area’s rich history and Cape Dutch architecture.
