Make a holiday rental home or self catering cottage in the Winelands, South Africa your home away from home

The Winelands are a lush region on the Western Cape of South Africa, famous for their beauty, quality of living and of course, the fine wines which created in the flourishing vineyards which decorate the landscape. Winelands holidays are a real treat, where indulgence and stimulation of body and soul are key, despite the enormous wealth of fascinating historical sites, leisure activities and glorious small towns to entertain even the most active of visitors.

Things to do on holiday in the Winelands, South Africa

With over 200 separate cellars to visit, a self catering Winelands cottage is a wine connoisseurs dream. These are some of the finest new world wines on the globe, and the wine heritage is simply staggering, and where ever you are in the Winelands, finding a glass to accompany the famous South African cuisine will never be a struggle!

The outstanding natural beauty of the Winelands makes getting out into the countryside a genuine delight. A great way to start your Winelands holiday, get your bearings and ensure memories you will never forget involves taking to the skies above the Cape. Hot air balloon tours are hugely popular and offer magnificent value for money, especially if you pass over the famous game reserves located in the area. South Africa is known especially for its magnificent game viewing, and the ‘big five’ can be seen from a Winelands cottage either on a guided walking tour, a 4x4 trail or on a horse-back safari, lasting anything from an afternoon to a full week. The bird life in the area is equally special, and anyone with an interest in birds will be absolutely delighted by the prospect of a week or two in a self catering Winelands cottage.

In fact, you can try almost any sport from a Winelands cottage. Walking, mountain biking and horse riding holidays particularly thrive in the Winelands, and there is plenty of scope for golf holidays, fly-fishing breaks and rock climbing trips from a self catering Winelands cottage.

Health and well-being are a huge part of life in the Winelands, and there are a whole host of spa centres, beauty treatment centres and alternative health fields around the region. Traditional Sangomas, (traditional healers), provide age old remedies and pampering techniques, meaning you will almost certainly return home refreshed, relaxed and recharged.

Fantastic property in a great location close to all amenities

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this property and will definitely return in the future. Beautifully furnished, spacious and in a fantastic location close to the town centre. Truly a pleasure to stay there and we were genuinely sad to leave.

9 adults and a toddler spent an excellent Christmas here. We also had other family in the area who we often entertained. Well laid out kitchen and lots of fridges made this easy. Steven, our friendly host, was there for our arrival and visited throughout the fortnight to see that things were going well. He catered for all our needs. The local ladies who cleaned, washed up and did the housework (including the washing and ironing!!!) were fantastic. We would definitely return.
