Somerset West, situated 50 kilometres east of the Cape Town city bowl, and 10 kilometers from the coastal town of Strand, is overlooked by the Helderberg, which forms part of the Hottentots-Holland mountain range. Somerset West is conveniently located between the buzz of city life, and the calm breeze of Strand and Gordon’s Bay beaches, and has become a popular destination for visitors hoping to get the best of what the Western Cape has to offer.
Some of Somerset West’s local attractions include: the Helderberg Nature Reserve which contains a number of natural, small wildlife like buck and tortoises, as well as outstanding specimens of indigenous flora such as protea and fynbos. Another attraction would be the Vergelegen Wine Estate which lies just outside of the town itself; the buildings on the estate are fine examples of Cape Dutch architecture.
Somerset West is also home to a number of sporting facilities, most notably its numerous golf courses.
