Cape Town's slice of Europe

Cobbled streets lined with quaint semi-detached cottages whose windows are adorned with flower boxes will transport travellers from Cape Town’s CBD to a town somewhere in Europe. De Waterkant Village has morphed into an artistic hub brimming with galleries, tapas bars, Parisian-inspired cafés and salsa clubs. Visitors will be thrown into the heart of Cape Town when staying in this vibrant part of the City Bowl. 

Cape Town’s city centre is the beating drum that drives this metropolis. Highlights include an array of museums, Green Market Square, the Company’s Garden and the Castle of Good Hope. The V&A Waterfront is home to countless shops, restaurants and tour operators, while the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are a short drive away.

Visitors can rent studio and one- to three-bedroom apartments in De Waterkant Village. There are also two guesthouses: De Waterkant House and The Charles Café & Rooms. De Waterkant Village has nearby underground parking at the Cape Quarter shopping centre, bicycle rentals, housekeeping, reception, concierge and laundry facilities. Those making use of self-catering facilities can even have personal grocery shopping done for them before they arrive.
