The Western Cape region
Somerset West is in the heart of the Western Cape winelands in the Helderberg basin surrounded on three sides by spectacular mountains and the third False bay with a beautiful long white sandy beach stretching from Strand to Gordons Bay. Historically it was a farming village but has grown considerably as many people are drawn to the beautiful area to retire. Many foreigners have also made it their second home. It has a mediterranean climate with most of the rain falling in the winter. Summers can be extremely hot - perfect to be on the beach but fortunately there are cool days too. Winter can be wet and grey - the ideal time for relaxing around a cosy fire or getting out and doing some wine tasting and sampling the excellent fare in the many restuarants from organic, vegan to speciality fish or meat - many of which serve local seasonal produce. Spring brings the spectacular fields of flowers locally and further afield up the west coast.
The Somerset West / Parel Vallei area
Many of the world's top wines and olive oils are produced within a 45 minute drive and visitors are welcomed to visit the farms and taste. On most weekends there are wonderful markets showcasing foods and crafts of the local farmers and craftspeople. The historic university town of Stellenbosch is 30 minutes away. Whales can be seen from the shore in Hermanus(80km) from July to November and in False bay from Muizemberg to Fish hoek (45km). There are different festivals celebrating olives, whales, wine, flowers, music, Christmas and strawberries at different times during the year. The Helderburg nature reserve is wonderful walk or cycle to enjoy the unique and spectacular fynbos and birds. Of course Cape Town with Table mountain newly proclaimed as one of the new 7 wonders of nature of the world is a 45 minute drive away. The Atlantic Ocean which you look out onto is cold and refreshing in summer and warmer in the winter months. There are wonderful Kelp forests for you to investigate while scuba diving or maybe you would like to try shark cage dives? If diving is not your thing - the Two Oceans Aquarium which will reveal all the secrets of the deep on our coast is one of the must sees in Cape Town.
