While Cape Town is best known for her magnificent beaches and summer lifestyle, winters offer just as much fun, with an endless array of things to do on a rainy day. As the food-and-wine capital of South Africa, winter is an ideal time to explore the excellent vintages of the Cape Winelands, where prestigious estates are ringed by snow-capped crags. After tastings next to crackling log fires, head to one of the Mother City’s many excellent restaurants to savour hearty winter favourites after a bottle of fine red. Art lovers will enjoy delving into the city’s many exciting galleries, while the outdoorsy will relish returning with mud-spattered mountain bikes and hiking boots.
Find the perfect place to bundle up in from our collection of villas that are best suited to a winter break. Large, cosy lounges with crackling fireplaces, bedrooms and bathrooms with luxurious under-floor heating, and sweeping balconies with wonderful views of snowy peaks or misty mountains are just some of the special treats in store.
