Stellenview Luxury Self Catering Cottage is situated in a leafy area of Stellenbosch - Experience country-living close to town.
The beautiful Stellenview Self Catering Cottage offers the discerning traveller to the Cape Winelands town of Stellenbosch a “country stay” experience within walking distance (less than 1.3 km) from the historic centre of Stellenbosch Village.
Stellenview Self Catering Cottage is suitable for 2 adults and is situated next to the University of Stellenbosch experimental farm called Welgevallen. We always joke ... you can “milk the cows” when they come close enough to the border of the cottage. At Stellenview Luxury Cottage you are not only situated next to this beautiful farm, but you also have views of the Stellenbosch Village as well as the surrounding Stellenbosch Mountains and vineyards.
When staying at this luxury Stellenbosch self catering cottage you have over 130 wine estates to choose from on the Stellenbosch Wine Route alone. Within a 30 minute drive, from Stellenview Luxury Self Catering Cottage, you can also explore the Franschhoek Wine Route (also known as the Gourmet Capital of South Africa) as well as the Paarl Wine Route. This makes Stellenview Cottage the ideal little hideaway if you are a wine enthusiast.
For those not wanting to drink and drive we will be more than happy to recommend a reputable company to take you on a wine tour. For our guests that need a good breakfast before you can start the day, but don’t feel like making your own...don’t despair...Stellenview Luxury Cottage is close to some amazing little restaurants and coffee shops who will all be delighted to serve you a generous breakfast.
Bird lovers are welcome to bring their own binoculars to view the variety of birdlife seen from the cottage. Past clients have spotted 41 different birds by just sitting on the Stellenview cottage patio.
The Cape Winelands offer some of the most beautiful golf courses in South Africa. Stellenview Luxury Cottage offers the golf fanatic the opportunity to play 22 of the top ranked golf courses in the Cape Winelands, Cape Town and Overberg regions with travelling time, from the Stellenview Cottage, ranging between 10 and 90 minutes by car.
This lovely self catering cottage so close to the historic Dorp Street of Stellenbosch (the 2nd oldest town in South Africa after Cape Town) not only offers a delightful stroll to town for you to enjoy the wonderful culinary delights and shops, but also offers the more adventurous traveller the experience of making use of the two mountain bikes (supplied by Stellenview Luxury Cottage) to explore the various routes from the cottage through the neighbouring Welgevallen farm and up the Stellenbosch Mountains.
