The magnificent mountains and hills surrounding the town of Stellenbosch offer unequalled opportunities for golfing, hiking, horse-riding, cycling, hot-air ballooning, hand-gliding and many more activities on your Cape Winelands holiday. As well as tours of the cellars of the surrounding wine farms. All of these activities can be organized by your hosts.
If you want to go further afield, take a drive to Hermanus during the Whale-watching season, or head off to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Following the peninsula road from there you can visit Hout Bay for a boat ride out to Seal Island. And then there's vibrant Cape Town, which is only 30 minutes away if you drive in directly.
