Places to Visit on Holiday in Stellenbosch, South Africa

One of the most popular locations for day trips for travellers on a Stellenbosch holiday is a day spent at the coastal town of Hermanus. This town is approximately 60 miles away from Stellenbosch but the journey is well worth it for what lies at the other end. Not only is Hermanus a naturally beautiful place to behold, it is also the centre for whale-watching in the Western Cape region. The whales can be seen really clearly from land at this point and Hermanus is the only place in the world to have its own dedicated “Whale Crier” who blows a kelp horn to alert people to when whales have been spotted off of the shoreline!

Ideal getaway home in Franschhoek

5 of 5
The property looked great online and was even nicer in person. Everything was in great working condition, the decor and garden setting made this home ideal for getting the true experience of this beautiful town. The host was warm and welcoming and helped us get into a last minute dinner and helped orient us to the town and made us feel right at home. The rooms are super spacious and well decorated and the garden surrounding the house is beautiful. We have stayed at many homes while traveling and this is one of the best experiences we have enjoyed. We looking forward to a return trip.

Beautiful and comfortable property

5 of 5
I absolutely loved this property. It's so beautifully decorated and fitted out to the highest standard. The gardens are also great and the swimming pool was fab. The location is ideal for exploring this wine region, and is very central within Franschhoek, with lovely restaurant only minutes' walk away. The property had recently been renovated so was in excellent condition. Tim the owner was also helpful with some questions we had, and I would 100% recommend this property.
