The Cape Winelands are some of the most scenic in the world and produce world renowned and award-wining wines. The Winelands are the perfect destination for foodies and wine-enthusiasts, or someone who is just looking for some relaxation and variety before or after a safari. Only 45-minutes from Cape Town you can explore the winelands for just a day or spend 3-4 nights. There are plenty of activities in the region that really showcase what it has to offer: tour vineyards and farms by vehicle, bike and even horseback; visit Bien Donne with its lavender fields, herb garden, manor house and deli; do a chocolate, wine, and cheese tour; or mountain bike through the surrounding mountains and valleys.

Our favorite properties in the Winelands, located in the towns Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, are Babylonstoren, Delaire Graff, and Le Quartier Francias. We love the Winelands and would highly recommend adding it to your South African itinerary.
