Stellenbosch is one of the most appealing small towns in South Africa and boasts some of the best-preserved examples of Cape Dutch architecture anywhere to be found.
Located in a magnificent mountain valley, Stellenbosch has a mild, Mediterranean climate and is ideally placed to explore The Winelands and Cape Peninsula.
The area's Erste (first) River Valley was one of the first to be settled and The Stellenbosch Wine Route is the oldest in South Africa, established in 1971.
