Reviews of Stellenbosch

It is not only the big student town of the Cape region, but also the capital of the wine region.

My suggestion:
Take your time visiting the town, there are many things to see and do. 

I adored Stellenbosch. The town is magnificent, with its white-washed houses typical of the Cape Dutch style and streets lined with oak trees brought by French colonists along with vines. The atmosphere is dynamic with all the students who live here all year round and the old Stellenbosch can be visited on foot. It is pleasant to go shopping, go to a restaurant...

Do not miss the exceptional anthropological section of Sasol Art Museum in Stellenbosch and the village museum, distributed over several historical houses in the centre. The surrounding landscape is sublime, with vines hemmed in by the mountains.

Together with Paarl and Franschhoek , it is one of the main towns of the wine region. Select wisely, among the dozens of estates, the ones you are going to visit to wine taste, be it for the setting or for the quality of the wine.
