The historic university town of Stellenbosch, situated in a magnificent valley, boasts a mild Mediterranean climate and is the ideal destination from which to explore the Cape winelands and further afield.
Stellenbosch is without a doubt one of the prettiest towns in South Africa, with spectacular natural surroundings and a rich history. The town and farms around it boast many finely preserved examples of the elegant traditional Cape Dutch architectural style.
This visual effect of Stellenbosch is compounded by the spectacular mountains surrounding the town, and its world-famous wineries attract local and international travellers.
Home to world-renowned Stellenbosch University, the town bustles with students, professionals and visitors, and has a vibrant food and art scene. Seek out the many markets, bistros, fine-dining restaurants, art galleries and boutiques lining its old oak-lined streets. This is a top spot to visit on a day trip or longer.
