The Winelands is only a short drive from Cape Town, but is a destination in its own right and whilst you can enjoy a day trip to the area, we recommend a night or two in Stellenbosch or charming Franschhoek- both historical old towns.  Franschhoek was originally the French quarter and is reputed to be the best town in the southern hemisphere to dine out in because of the excellent restaurants.  Stellenbosch is a considerably larger town than Franschhoek with its own respected university but entering the old quarter is like stepping back in time.

Below are some of our favourite Winelands properties, and we have many more on our database so email us or phone +44 (0)20 7112 0019 to see more pictures and for more accommodation suggestions.
