These affluent areas sit adjacent to each other with Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Table Mountain forming a backdrop. Properties tend to be surrounded by spacious lawns and the oak-lined avenues bring an exquisite natural beauty to the area.
The Constantia Wine Valley is the oldest wine producing region in the southern hemisphere with winemaking dating back to 1685. The area is steeped in history and it’s easy to picture horse-drawn carriages weaving their way past the original manor houses and all the Cape Dutch architecture still very much in evidence.
- Wine tastings at the 9 excellent farms in the valley are excellent experiences and come with idyllic views as an added bonus
- Take a picnic to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and spend a day exploring one of the world's great botanic gardens
- Constantia is home to a number of award-winning restaurants and offer a variety of exceptional dining encounters
Both suburbs are peaceful with rolling landscapes and beautiful vistas. Bishopscourt is relatively small in size and contrasts with Constantia's more sprawling nature.
This is a great place for getting outdoors and stretching your legs. Those incredible views across vineyards and all the way to False Bay are best enjoyed from some of the excellent trails, whether on a casual stroll or an energetic hike. Or take a wander down the Liesbeek Parkway green corridor, a well-kept secret with a trail right next to a gently flowing river.
There is no need to miss out on beach time when staying in Constantia with the False Bay beaches and Hout Bay within easy access. A short drive over Constantia Nek gets you to the stunning beach in Hout Bay and may just have you driving further on to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Chapman's Peak Drive. Muizenberg beach is a very popular surf spot with the colourful beach huts and iconic feature often appearing in holiday photographs.View other areas >
