Our surrounding environment is exciting and varied – the perfect base from which to explore the Western Cape

  • Gordon’s Bay is a small picturesque seaside resort at the eastern end of False Bay.
  • Bask under the blue African sky on the white sandy Bikini Beach (5km). The beachfront promenade is dotted with popular seafood restaurants, pubs and cafés. In the old port one can book boat cruises or deep sea fishing.
  • Between Gordons Bay and Hermanus is one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world winding along a breath-taking, steep coast. In spring (August – November) whales are spotted from here.
  • Within a 10km radius visit one of the most beautiful wineries of the Cape, Vergelegen Wine Estate, steeped in history, or one of the awe inspiring contemporary ones.
  • Walk/hike in the Helderberg Nature Reserve with its fascinating Cape flora (Fynbos).

Cape Town

The sea port of Cape Town is one of the most important in the world due to the favourable geographical location. The Victoria and Albert Waterfront in the working harbour is a bustling shopping, dining and entertainment area and is almost synonymous with a visit to vibrant Cape Town.

Table Mountain

A trip up famous Table Mountain is one of the highlights Cape Town has to offer.
From here one has a spectacular view of the city center, the ocean, Robben Island and of the impressive mountain ranges of the Cape Peninsula.

Stellenbosch & Franschhoek Wineries

Stellenbosch (approx. 30 min), is the center of the affluent wine region of the Cape. This historic characterful town today still reflects the Dutch roots of its past. It also hosts one of the most renowned universities in South Africa with a faculty for viticulture.

Franschhoek (approx. 1 hour) is known for its French roots and flair. The Main Road is lined with coffee shops, French restaurants, fashion shops and galleries.

In and around Franschhoek are numerous renowned wine estates and most can be visited for wine tasting.


Hermanus (approx. 1 hour), along the Overberg coast, with good reason, calls itself “whale capital of the world”. You can see whales frolicking from the cliff paths or get an unforgettable view from a boat. Annually between July and December dozens of Southern Right Whales inhabit the calm waters of the bay, sometimes up to 100 whale cows with their calves.


For the golf enthusiast, South Africa is a dream destination. The country has an ideal climate for spending time out on the fairways, and golfers here are spoilt for choice.
