Once a separate town north of Cape Town, Durbanville now forms part of the greater City of Cape Town. It is one of the fastest growing regions boasting superb shopping centres, restaurants, pubs, theatres, and a world-class wine route. Experience the best of bustling city life and relaxed country splendour by booking a stay in one of our beautiful Durbanville establishments.
Durbanville is within minutes of the N1, the main highway between Cape Town CBD and the Boland towns, making it convenient for business and leisure activities. It is also an excellent base from which to explore the many tourist attractions of the Cape, from the V&A Waterfront to the Cape Winelands. Although Durbanville has seen immense growth over the last three decades, it has kept its individual character with elegant yet rural atmosphere and architecture. Once considered to be little more than a sleepy hollow, this vibrant wineland town has many modern offerings; providing both a tranquil getaway for city slickers and an entertaining playground for visitors from the surrounding farmlands.
Several popular wine routes are situated within a 5 to 45 minute drive time from Durbanville. The beautiful Durbanville Wine Route boasts 9 unique estates right on your doorstep and the Constantia Wine Route is the birthplace of the wine farming industry in South Africa. While the Paarl Wine Route is highly established, Franschhoek Valley is one of the premier wine destinations in the world, and the Stellenbosch Wine Route represents more than 300 wine and grape producers. Other worthwhile wine regions include the mountain-fringed Helderberg and scenic Swartland.

Spend some time at Cape Point before heading back along the Atlantic Seaboard via Hout Bay and the famous beaches of Clifton.
