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.
