A local Afrikaans saying goes that though the seasons may change, it is, and always will be, Spring in the eyes of the residents of Stellenbosch. Stellenbosch is internationally renowned for its stunning landscapes, its wine farms, street cafes, restaurants, historical buildings and its famous university- all of which contribute to the undeniable vibrancy which runs through the streets of a town that has brought together nature and modernity in perfect symbiosis.
Stellenbosch is a beautiful town, characterised by oak-lined streets and whitewashed buildings, many of Cape Dutch origin. The town lies between the Simonsberg and the more modest Papegaaiberg (‘Parrot Mountain’) and is a truly idyllic setting to explore on foot. Visit on any given day and you will quickly realise that this is a university town- with students whizzing around on bicycles and lounging in sidewalk cafes- adding to the relaxed, but ultimately vibrant, atmosphere of Stellenbosch.
Many leading wine estates are located in Stellenbosch, such as Spier- which was originally established in 1692, and today offers a host of activities for visitors, from Segway tours to wine tasting, picnics and exhibitions. Other estates include Blaauwklippen, Delheim and Tokara. Stellenbosch is also well-known for its award-winning restaurants. Rust en Vrede, Jordan and Terroir have all made it on to the Eat Out award list for the top 10 restaurants in the country.
