Cape Town and the Winelands


Wining, dining and sea air


Overview

Think of this as a mini 'Best of the Cape' tour. We designed it with rest and relaxation in mind. 5 nights of sheer indulgence. Sea air and Table Mountain followed by the legendary beauty and splendour of the Cape Winelands. Meander your way from Paarl to Franschhoek and on to Stellenbosch, tasting some of South Africa's finest wines along the way.

The winelands are a mere 45 minute drive from Cape Town and about 15 minutes from each other. You could easily extend this stay to take in a couple of hotels in different parts of the winelands. Especially if, like me, wine is your thing. There are hundreds of wine estates to choose from, as well as some of South Africa's finest restaurants. Most of the estates offer delicious tastings and some even offer gourmet picnics on grass embankments next to the river.
