On the slopes of Table Mountain are some excellent guesthouses in leafy and elegant suburbs such as Gardens and Tamboerskloof. These surround the fascinating and wonderfully diverse historic city centre. Long Street buzzes into the early hours more...

Only 20 minutes from Cape Town, the Constantia Valleyhas beautiful woodlands, the oldest wine farms, excellent restaurants and some very fine accommodation. Expect some full prices too!

Featuring famous sporting venues, forest walks and the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens, these leafy and well located suburbs may, however, be too suburban for many visitors more...

Hout Bay is half an hour from Cape Town centre via a magnificent drive. The area has a very beautiful setting, an interesting harbour, plenty of outdoor activities and a fine beach.

However, it will take an hour to get to the city centre and a little more to the winelands. This area suits those who want to walk, ride, beach and relax more...

The Winelands are 45 minutes from Cape Town, scenically splendid and enjoying some charming towns. There are some superb wine estates and golf courses.

Stellenbosch is particularly attractive and is central to the area, but Paarl, Franschhoek and Somerset West are also popular. There is a good variety of accommodation more...
