Stellenbosch Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome to Stellenbosch

Colonial Estate in the Helderberg MtnsThe eastern Cape Town suburb of Stellenbosch is a charming and picturesque town with some fine colonial architecture set in a spectacular valley. This is the heart of South Africa's wine producing land thanks to its excellent climate and nutrient rich soils. Within this beautiful environment are a variety of hotels and holiday accommodations, ranging from five-star hotels in the famous Winelands, to more modest guesthouses and cheap hotels, all benefiting from glorious surroundings and an abundance of delicious wine! Seated in a shallow valley, the town enjoys views of the mountains and tree-clad hills that surround it. Known as a centre of technology, it is also a fervent supporter of rugby, and nearly every resident supports a team, the local Maties Rugby Club being a favourite.

Top Stellenbosch Attractions

A walk along Dorp Street will allow you to experience the city's rich history, and you can finish the day at one of the many museums or galleries around town. Stellenbosch's rich soils produce more than grapes, so stop by one of the many gardens, nurseries or flower and herb vendors whilst on holiday.
