Welcome to Allegria Guest House & Vineyards on SA-Venues.com, offering accommodation in Stellenbosch, Cape Winelands.
A portion of our grounds, which boasts a unique terrior, is planted with organically cultivated Shiraz grapes. Our wine, handcrafted by renowned winemaker Louis Nel, received excellent reviews. Both the 2010 and the 2011 harvest were awarded 4* by John Platter Wine Guide (2013).
The perfect base to explore the Winelands, Cape Town and beyond! Affordable luxury in a tranquil, inspiring environment. The completely renovated Tuscan style villa lies on a 2 hectare country estate, almost entirely surrounded by vineyards. .
The views all around are breathtaking; rolling vineyards and mountain chains as far as the eye can see. To put it briefly, these are restful and inspiring surroundings, which form the best possible base to explore Stellenbosch, the Winelands and the Cape.
Allegria Guesthouse offers six comfortable guestrooms and a cottage, in three price ranges. The rooms have been given the name of a typically (South-) African animal. The stylish and contemporary design is tuned in with the respective animal and is therefore different for each room.
Our Comfort rooms Cheetah and Giraffe have all modern conveniences, including: XL beds (queen size or twin beds), aircon/heating, satellite TV, fridge, kettle with tea and coffee, safe, hair dryer, en-suite bathroom (shower only) and a private patio.
The more spacious DeLuxe rooms (with XL queen size or twin beds) have a semi-open plan bathroom with a bath-with-a-view, separate shower and a separate toilet. The two rooms have lockable, interconnecting doors, which makes them suitable for a family.
On top of this, the extra large Superior rooms Lion and Elephant (both with XL queen beds) also have a CD/DVD player and an iPod docking station. The semi-open plan bathroom comes with a bath-with-a-view, separate twin showers and a separated toilet.
The Whale cottage (± 40 m²) comprises a living room, bathroom (shower only) and a bedroom with XL queen bed. Outside is a private courtyard. Amenities include a fridge, kettle, safe, desk, ceiling fan (bedroom) and satellite TV. Sorry, no aircon. In the living room you will find a comfortable sleeper couch that can sleep two.The room is situated on the south side of the building.
Sorry, no smoking inside. No pets.
Food & Wine
Body and soul are well cared for. In addition to the very comfortable rooms with their XL beds, our guests are spoiled with a delicious breakfast, which is - weather permitting - served on the inner courtyard. The breakfast we serve, is comprehensive, with fresh fruit, home-baked bread and rolls, fruit juice and yoghurts, cereals and muesli, cold meats and cheeses, free-range eggs prepared to your order and a delectable muffin.
In season we also serve light evening meals (cheese platter, salads). Our honesty bar contains a hand-picked selection of fine wines, including our own 4* shiraz. Later on the day, you can sip a glass of wine beside the large (20 m.) swimming pool.
The regal lounge has a fire place, library, satellite TV and internet computer. Free WiFi is available throughout the guesthouse.
