No 17 The Village Square, Beach Crescent, Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa

Directions to La Dolce Vita

From Cape Town International Airport (and the N2):
From the airport follow the directions to Cape Town N2. Follow the N2 till you see the signboards M3 Muizenberg (beware not to take the first Muizenberg M5 turn off).

Branch off to your left onto M3, which will be just before you hit the foot of the mountain.

Follow the M3 (about 3 km), as you approach the first traffic light on the M3 sign posted to Rhodes Drive/Hout Bay, line up in the right lane. At this traffic light it will clearly indicate to turn right to Hout Bay and Kirstenbosch Gardens. So turn right into the M63 Rhodes Avenue. You will go past Kirstenbosch Gardens on your right, then up a steep little hill where the road meets in a T junction. Here you turn right, it is clearly indicated as the way to Hout Bay and remains the M63.

Now follow the beautiful windy road till you reach a traffic circle (roundabout) at Constantia Neck. Follow the direction to Hout Bay. You are now in the Main Road leading to Hout Bay. Keep going for a long way winding down the hill, straight on past 2 more traffic circles, staying in Main Road. Once you have passed the second circle, look out for a Caltex Garage (petrol station) on your right.

Turn immediately right after the Caltex station into The Promenade, you will see our sign on the corner under the Deli Delish sign, then turn immediately left into Beach Crescent. Park immediately on the right hand side of the road facing the wooden security hut and you will see our office "The Village Agency" just underneath “EDGE Lifestyle and Fitness Centre”.

We are clearly sign posted and the fitness centre/gym next door and above us, can also be seen quite clearly from the road. Park there and meet me in the office.

Should you be arriving after hours:
Village Square is further down Beach Crescent and is the second large building on the right hand side of the road.. You will need to collect your keys from 'Deep Blue' security in the building directly opposite Village Square. They are open 24 hours a day and you will need to ring the doorbell to gain access. Your keys and directions for parking etc will be in an envelope with your name.
