Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The first thing that will catch your eye in Somerset West is the view over False Bay.  This town surrounded by majestic mountains and hills covered with vineyards is rich in cultural heritage dating back to 1672 when the land was purchased from the locals and a cattle post was established by Dutch soldiers.

There are numerous wine farms in Somerset West that are part of the Helderberg Wine Route including Vergelegen which has the oldest vineyard in the area and also the historic Cape Dutch homestead.  Vergelegen hosts the annual “Carols by Candlelight” event every Christmas season.

The Helderberg Nature reserve is situated on the slopes of the mountain and offers picnic areas, hiking trails, a restaurant and a gift shop.

The Helderberg Wine Route has some of the best wine estates in the country where you can spend the afternoon sipping on fine wines, and snacking on platters. There are also countless restaurants and bars to enjoy, and visitors are spoilt for choice.

We are situated only 45min away from our mother city Cape town.

Why Cape Town? The Mother City has a big drawcard: Stunning scenery, great lifestyle and the most friendly people. The easy pace of life and cosmopolitan mix of own culture attracts many people from around the world. So no wonder, tourist and expats alike vote consistently for Cape Town to rank among the top cities around the world.

A coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, there's nowhere quite like Cape Town, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park.

Buzzy restaurants
TRIGGERFISH This micro-brewery is a little off the beaten track, but it’s well worth a slight detour. There’s a small beer garden and restaurant, and they have 14 beers to choose from, including an easy-drinking Blonde Ale, a Russian imperial stout, and an imperial IPA. The menu offers good quality lunchtime fare, like pulled pork sandwiches and hot wings. It’s the perfect spot for a lazy pint or two and a bite to eat. Website: triggerfishbrewing.co.za The Restaurant at Waterkloof If you’re after fine dining, look no further than the restaurant at Waterkloof. It’s consistently rated as the top restaurant in the area, and while it isn’t cheap, the food is exquisite. Large glass windows overlook the vineyards, and the venue is stylishly decorated. The cuisine is classical with a modern French twist, with favourites such as the Joostenberg Vlakte duck breast, served with hibiscus-infused oven-roasted turnips. The degustation menu offers a chance to sample many dishes, and is available with wine-pairing. Website: waterkloofwines.co.za Bossa Good Times Bar Bossa is a casual and friendly bar and restaurant, offering tasty cocktails, and delicious burgers and pizzas. It’s enjoyed by locals for after-work drinks and casual dinners, and by families with kids—there is a play area outside. In the evenings the bar is often buzzing with activity, and makes for a lively and social evening mingling with the locals. Website: bossa.co.za MORGENSTER OLIVE AND WINE ESTATE You would be hard-pressed to find a better view than the one at Morgenster Wine and Olive Estate. The tasting room overlooks a still reed-lined dam, with the Helderberg mountain range looming in the background. They are award-winning producers of olives, olive oils, and wine, and you can enjoy their outdoor seating while you taste their wares. The estate is also home to a lovely Italian restaurant, 95 at Morgenster, where you can enjoy farm-reared meat in traditional Italian dishes. Website: morgenster.co.za STEFFANIE’S PLACE Steffanie’s is an enduring favourite with the Somerset locals, and for good reason. It has one of the best views in the Helderberg, and is consistently rated as of the best restaurants in Somerset West. The atmospherere is casual but elegant, and guests can book seating on the outdoor terrace. They have an excellent wine list, and serve beautiful meat dishes as well as vegetarian options.  Cap it off with some decadent dessert as you soak in the views and vibe of Steffanie’s. Website: facebook.com VERGELEGEN WINE ESTATE Vergelegen is more than just a wine estate. With a 300-year history, and spectacular dedicated gardens, the estate is an attraction in its own right. There is a herb garden, lavender labyrinth,  kids’ playground and maze, wetland, rose garden, cellar tours, a number of walking trails, and a library that holds books dating to the 1700s! The picnic lawns are stunning, and there are two restaurants—Camphors and Stables—to choose from. Website: vergelegen.co.za

Bit of culture
Cape Town, which dates back to 1482, lies at the African continent's southern-most point. This marvelously unique city is a cultural melting pot, with a diverse and vibrant population influenced by Zulu, Xhosa, and other African tribes, as well as Dutch, British, German, French, and Indonesian settlers. Due to its natural topography, Cape Town boasts a variety of breathtaking landscapes in which distinct neighborhoods and districts of the city have developed. From the beach houses of Camps Bay to the Bo Kaap Muslim neighborhood at the foot of Lion's Head Peak, to the highrise apartments of downtown, something new is always just around the corner. The diverse people, landscapes and the exciting cultural history make Cape Town an ideal place to study abroad.
