LEISURE OPTIONS

Wine – if a good glass of wine is your thing, then you've come to the right place. Stellenbosch is at the centre of the world-renowned Cape Winelands, and we are privileged to have a number of top-class wine estates such as Dornier, Waterford and Stellenzicht on our doorstep.

Golf – for the keen golfer, there is a wide variety of excellent quality golf courses in the area. We would be glad to assist you with golf bookings and information on courses.

Nature walks / trails – Why not try one of the beautiful mountain trails that Friesland Farm has to offer? Over 25ha of untouched mountain land, carpeted in unique Cape ‘fynbos’ vegetation, is yours to explore. Here you can bathe your feet in a pristine mountain stream, watch a tremendous variety of birds, and take in a wide-angle view of the entire Cape Peninsula without seeing another person for miles around.

Beaches – The Greater Cape Town area is home to some of the best and most expansive beaches in South Africa. From the cold but beautiful waters of the Atlantic, to the warm waters of False Bay (only 15 minutes away), there are beaches to suit every taste within easy reach.

Around Stellenbosch – Your hosts would be delighted to advise you on the many recreational activities on offer in and around Stellenbosch. Enjoy a vast array of scenic wineland tours, or take in the historically quaint village of Stellenbosch, with its shady, oak-lined streets and famous Cape-Dutch architecture, on foot. Innumerable restaurants, cafés, museums, shops and markets await discovery. Home to one of South Africa’s best universities, “the Eikestad” is a vibrant town whose ambiance draws both young and old… Or, if you prefer, you could just relax next to the pool on the farm and enjoy the breathtaking vistas that surround you.

   

Cape Town - And, of course, the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town and its many attractions (Table Mountain, Cape Point, the V&A Waterfront, restaurants, shops and beaches, to name just a few!) are only a short car trip away. We would be delighted to help you plan a day-trip to the city and supply you with information on the various activities. Whether you are looking for action and adventure, or prefer a quiet, relaxing time, Cape Town is guaranteed to thrill you.
