It's always a super visit to explore Stellenbosch. Love all the restaurants and interesting shops, museums and well kept gardens. If you don't go for the wine, go for the culture & history!

We had a fantastic weekend exploring Stellenbosch. Although the weather was not ideal (drizzling) it seemed to add to the atmosphere. Fab restaurants, very interesting history, monuments and views to die for! Its a no brainer - just go! (Forgot to mention the WINE!! - Go try! Taste! Buy!) You will love it.

We really enjoyed visiting all the wine cellars (there are more than 100 but we only managed to visit 28). Most offer tasting tours every day. We enjoyed visits to the historic sites including the Oom Samie se Winkel and the church, museums and lovely walks in the town to the shops and restaurants.

A wonderfully interesting town to visit. So much history here, the buildings are interesting, lots of monuments and being a university town, there is a wonderful atmosphere with excellent as well as more casual restaurants, lots of interesting art galleries, boutiques and touristy type shops to explore. Do a wine tour if you have time. We did... what a lot of fun we had. We felt extremely safe at all times, we walked everywhere and I would recommend a few days stay to anyone who loves wine and the countryside.

Even in winter this is a stunning town with lots to do and a great atmosphere. Beautiful building, stunning architecture, beautiful gardens, wonderful restaurants and shops and the town is extremely tourist friendly. Not to mention all the wine estates ... and golfers, you will love Stellies!! II make a point of visiting here at least twice a year.

You have to visit Devonvale Golf & Wine Estate!! After your round of golf you deserve a round of "Provoyeur" - Wines .....
