Make a Holiday Rental House in Somerset West, South Africa, Your Home Away From Home

Somerset West is an idyllic, traditional South African town situated approximately 30 miles away from the city of Cape Town. Lying close to the coast and next to the Helderberg Nature Reserve, there are plenty of reasons to embark on a Somerset West holiday at any time of year. Not only will a Somerset West holiday rental house provide you with all of the comforts of home, it will leave you with some lasting memories of those terrific scenic views from every window.

Things to Do on Holiday in Somerset West, South Africa

Visitors on a Somerset West holiday will discover that there are plenty of things to see and do in the town, which is why it is a popular destination for so many travellers. As well as activities such as swimming, golf, tennis, horse riding and hiking in the nearby Helderberg Nature Reserve, it is recommended that those on a Somerset West holiday take the time to visit the magnificent Vergelegen.

This is a wine farm which dates back to the 18th century and has been restored to its former Cape Dutch style glory. The farm still produces wines and if visiting Vergelegen during the winter months, be sure not to miss the “Carols by Candlelight” event which is held every year. This event sees visitors being invited to bring a picnic, a blanket to spread over the immaculate lawn of the house and a torch to see the beautiful stars as everyone joins in with some soothing carol singing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Somerset West, South Africa

Should you feel the need to leave your Somerset West holiday rental house for the day and explore the surrounding area, then it is worth heading south to the town of L’Agulhas. Not only is L’Agulhas the most southerly town in the whole of the country, the coast at L’Agulhas is known as the “Cape of Storms”, probably referring to the number of ships that have being wrecked around its jagged coastline. The town is home to the second oldest working lighthouse in South Africa, as well as the interesting Bredasdorp Shipwreck Museum which houses pieces of many vessels which have succumbed to the turbulent seas in this area.

Weather in Somerset West, South Africa

The winter months (from May until July) see the daytime temperature fall to around 19 degrees Celsius during the day. The city as a whole experiences around 19 inches of rainfall per year.

Travel to Somerset West, South Africa

Beginning a wonderful Somerset West holiday is as easy as flying into Cape Town International Airport (CPT) which is just over 20 minutes away from the town.

Well furnished & equipped. Good pool & outside areas. Comfortable rooms with lots of storage.

5 of 5
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.

very nice and secure home

4 of 5
Stayed 2 weeks and had a relaxed time. Home is well equipped. Also first needs (toilet paper, tea/coffee etc.) were there which we found an exception to the ‘rule’. And this all at a reasonable price. Only thing was that our first entry took some time and hassle because security found they were not properly informed about our arrival. But once that was sorted out everything went smoothly and we could even use the ‘residents’ gate.
