Stellenbosch is at the heart of the Winelands. It has many historic mansions and stately homes but it still has a vibrant feel thanks to the student population attending its famous university.
Stellenbosch, South Africa
Stellenbosch is at the heart of the Winelands.
Though the oldest European settlement in South Africa after Cape Town, it often feels the youngest, with a vitality imbued by the student population attending its famous university.
300 year old oak trees
Many of the avenues are lined with 300-year-old oak trees that shelter historic mansions and stately homes, while there are also pretty lanes lined with plentiful cafés and restaurants.
It’s a welcoming town, easy and rewarding to explore on foot.
