Stellenbosch is the second-oldest and undoubtedly the most scenically striking and historically preserved town in South Africa. The history of Stellenbosch is reflected in the neo-Dutch, and modern-Victorian architecture that bear witness to a proud and dignified heritage.Accommodation in Stellenbosch can be found in abundance! One of our very favourite spots has to be Weltevreden Estate.
Weltevreden Estate represents the as-of-yet undiscovered jewel at the foot of the magnificent Simonsberg Mountain. A state-of-the-art restaurant; boutique accommodation; wedding/conference venue as well as a family-orientated, exterior dining experience all contribute to launch Weltevreden as a powerhouse in tourism circles. This magnificent property, which is less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, represents the culmination of a dream, personified by the picturesque setting that only Stellenbosch can bestow .
The Executive Apartment permits the use of a beautiful yellow-wood kitchen, a dining area and a formal lounge area. The four elevated bedchambers have original Cape Dutch architecture with a cosy thatched roof finish. Relying heavily on their beliefs of remaining true to their heritage, the works of art in Weltevreden Estate reflects this self-same journey.
