Fresnaye, Atlantic Seaboard

Set on the slopes of Lion’s Head, between Sea Point and Bantry Bay, Fresnaye is one of Cape Town’s most fashionable residential areas.

Fresnaye's choice position on the mountain, the fact that it is sheltered from the notorious south-easterly and its easy access to Cape Town has produced some of the most expensive real estate along the Atlantic Seaboard. The streets here, as the suburb’s name indicates, are named after places in France and the magnificent views take in sweeping vistas of the Atlantic, Table Bay and Robben Island.

The suburb gives one easy access to the various museums, galleries and alleyways of the city centre and is just minutes from the V&A Waterfront.

The trendy Atlantic beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are literally just up the road, within walking distance, and hanging out on one of Clifton’s four beaches, separated by granite boulders, or the long palm-lined stretch of sand that has made Camps Bay so popular amongst the jet set crowd, is a major draw card to the area.

Sunsets on this part of the peninsula are legendary and Fresnaye is no exception, particularly because of its situation on the slopes of a mountain. Fresnaye is close to Sea Point’s Main Road with an eclectic offering of shops, bars, clubs and restaurants that give it its own cosmopolitan flavour and Sea Point’s promenade is popular with locals, walkers, joggers and the pram brigade.
