Boschendal Farm Stay
Boschendal lies between the Simonsberg and Drakenstein mountains an hour’s drive from Cape Town. The name Bos-en-dal, or wood and valley, reveals its essence: a breathtakingly beautiful valley basin of 1800 hectares. Location, the sheer scale, natural splendour and history make exploring Boschendal compelling. It beguiles and inspires wonder with its unique spirit of place.
With cottages scattered across the vast expanse and changing landscapes of the property, guests have a chance to immerse themselves into the many layers of South Africa’s second oldest wine farm. Dating back to 1685, Boschendal is a place where generations of families have worked. It is these combinations of stories and histories, mythical landscapes and mysterious mountains that compel repeat visits. Great places need time for understanding and the unravelling of their complexities.
