Where is it?
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.
