Fancy a tipple? The Winelands are one of the prettiest areas of South Africa and producing some of the best wines in the world, which you can sample during your vineyard visits. The region is also well known for its excellent restaurants, with local and international cuisine. Enjoy hikes through idyllic landscapes and balloon flights. Though the oldest European settlement in South Africa after Cape Town, Stellenbosch feels the youngest, with vitality imbued by students attending its famous university. Meanwhile, Franschhoek (or ‘French corner’) is a beautiful town, commemorating the Huguenot refugees granted land here in their flight from 17th century persecution in France.
