Holiday homes in Stellenbosch

Picturesque little town in the vineyards

Stellenbosch has developed into a real insider tip in recent years. This is because the city is at least as exciting as the surrounding landscape. If you want to spend your holidays close to the centre, a holiday flat or an apartment is the right choice. Further out, for example in Wemmershoek or in the Jonkershoek nature reserve, you can take a stylish holiday in a holiday home, a villa or a stately home.

Location and orientation

Holidays in South Africa's fertile heart

The city of Stellenbosch is located in the Western Cape Province, about 50 kilometres east of South Africa's capital. It is, together with Cape Town, the oldest settlement in South Africa founded by Europeans, which is reflected not only in the culture but also in the wonderful architecture of Oldtown. The city is situated in an extremely fertile region with green mountains and even greener valleys - this is why agriculture, especially wine making, but also tourism plays an important role.

At the Stellenbosch Wine Festival in February, wine lovers from all over the world flock to the city to taste the best wines and other delicacies for three days.

3. The Stellenbosch Wine Route

Stellenbosch is considered the most important wine-growing region in South Africa. The region owes its viticulture to the Huguenots who fled to Stellenbosch at the end of the 17th century. Today there are over 200 wineries on the wine route, some of which have been awarded prizes, where you can feast on the wines and other delicacies. In some of the wineries you can also take a holiday in a holiday apartment in the middle of the vineyards - wonderful!
