Western Cape Travel & Accommodation Guide

Home  -  Western Cape Guesthouses  - Somerset West - Cape Winelands - Helderberg


Somerset West (Afrikaans Somerset-Wes) is a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa. It is situated in the Helderberg area (formerly called Hottentots Holland), about 50 km (30 mi) east of Cape Town and 10 km from Strand.  The town is overlooked by the imposing Helderberg (meaning "clear mountain"), a part of the Hottentots-Holland range of mountains.  Somerset West has a fairly decorative display of Christmas lights erected atop the street lights of the Main Road. The Helderberg Lights Festival (aka the Strawberry Festival), a flea market and parade, normally complements these lights.  The area also has its own community radio station, Radio Helderberg, broadcasting community notices and playing adult orientated pop music.

Home  -  Western Cape Guesthouses  - Stellenbosch - Cape Winelands


Stellenbosch is South Africa’s second oldest town, after Cape Town and is the sentimental heart of the Winelands. Lined with shady oaks and beautiful gabled, white-washed buildings the streets of Stellenbosch still have small irrigation channels on either side of the older roads. In the past, these were used to water gardens, as each householder had a time slot in which to divert the town’s irrigation into their plot.  It is very cultural and somewhat venerable, while also displaying a decidedly young and vibrant air. There are some interesting museums and many of the buildings, including some of the hotels and restaurants, are national monuments and deserve a second look. There is good mountain biking just outside the town, and there are golf courses aplenty, but Stellenbosch is really all about wine.

The town is virtually surrounded by fabulous cellars where you can do a tasting, join a cellar tour, stock up your own personal cellar, and perhaps enjoy a lovely leisurely lunch in the shade of some typical Stellenbosch oaks. Some of the wine farms have become multi-purpose resorts with theatres, restaurants, equestrian centres and much much more.  Stellenbosch is close to Cape Town so it can be visited on a day trip, or you could do a day trip to Cape Town or the Overberg from Stellenbosch. The nearest beach is at Strand.
