Tranquil high-altitude garden villa in Constantia

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6 bathrooms
Lavender perfumes the air and the Cape Town mountains dominate the views around this traditionally chic villa 20 minutes from the city center. Fold-back glass walls and shutters invite the scent and sights into white-walled, wood-floored interiors and a cozy pool house. Walk 2 minutes to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and drive 5 minutes to the beginning of the Constantia winelands.
 
Start each morning of your holiday with the included French-style breakfast, then send the kids to the play structure while you settle in with a book on a lounger by the pool. Have lunch at the alfresco dining area and, as cocktail hour approaches, make drinks at the wet bar in the pool house or open a bottle of a new favorite South African wine. For evening entertainment, there’s a satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and a wood-burning fireplace.
 
You can see the mountains from the double doors at the entrance to this vacation rental—and the views set the tone for the whole house. Follow the planks of the wood floors to an open-concept sitting area and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, both of which are cooled by the breeze from a fold-back wall. A separate dining room seats 8 and adjoins a second living room.
 
There are 5 bedrooms in the main house at this luxury property and 1 in the pool house. The pool-house bedroom is a honeymoon-worthy retreat with a queen bed and ensuite bathroom.
 
Bring the whole family for a picnic in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a 2-minute walk from the villa, or take the grown-ups tasting in the Constantia winelands, which start a 5-minute drive from your doorstep. It’s a 20-minute drive to shopping, sights, and more in the Cape Town city center.
