About Paddabult Self Catering Cottages
Situated on the historic Bloemendal farm, established by grant in 1692 by Governor Simon van der Stel and surrounded by lush vineyards with the imposing Boland Mountains in the background, these beautifully designed Self Catering Cottages provide a unique pastoral experience.
Equidistant from Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch and only 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and the V&A Waterfront, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city, Paddabult offers you total relaxation on a working wine and fruit farm.
