Top Places To Visit 3 Spots
Oude Libertas Road
A must do for a Saturday morning, is to go to the Oude Libertas Market on Oude Libertas road, which consists of a variety of food from all over the World that’s been a bit “Stellenbosch-anised” and the best of all is, near the entrance you buy a wine glass, and you can top it up with any wine there after for R30 ($3) while you walk and eat your way through this amazing market. We also spent a day driving threw the city, which is filled with great souvenir shops and history about Stellenbosch.
Protea Hotel Stellenbosch
We stayed at Protea Hotel Stellenbosch, which is centrally located between the Wine a route and City and the highlight of the Protea Hotel in Stellenbosch is the view from your bedroom window, as the hotel is elevated and surrounded by mountains. After tasting all the wines and champagne up for offer, we stopped at Asara Wine Estate and Hotel and had a delicious lunch.
Next morning I went to the serene town of Stellenbosch. The place has some fine vineyards and I had registered for a wine tour with Wine Flies. Ian was our guide-cum-driver. And our group was really interesting, with fun-loving people from different parts of the world. Stories were shared over wine, chocolate, cheese and food. My host for the night was Eugene, who has a beautiful house there. He told about some secret trips and trails on the Garden Route over dinner.
