Forming a neat triangle, the valleys of Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch make up the prodigious triumvirate of South Africa’s wine industry. But it’s not all noses, palates and lengthy finishes. The Cape Winelands area is home to some spectacular scenery which alone is enough of a draw card. Scenic hikes, horse trails, and cycle routes all make full use of the resplendent mountainous nature reserves and surrounds. The towns themselves are charming stills of years gone by – with classic Cape Dutch architecture and proud monuments, museums, and galleries – which have taken on a modern persona with boutique restaurants and hotels.
