Fodor's Review

This 200-acre winery has an enviable setting, backed by the magnificent mountains of the Constantiaberg and overlooking the vineyards of Constantia Valley. You might be 25 minutes from the center of town, but this is a little slice of rural paradise, with horses grazing just a few hundred yards away. Rooms, in whitewashed farm cottages set on manicured lawns and gardens, are luxurious and inviting. Brass bedsteads, timber ceilings, and sophisticated check-and-floral patterns

evoke an upscale farmhouse feel. The two restaurants near the original farmhouse, La Colombe and Constantia Uitsig, are just a few paces from the hotel and draw diners from all over the Cape, and the River Café, a lighter breakfast and lunch spot, is located at the gatehouse at the entrance to the estate. The manicured cricket pitch is the perfect place for a summer game. A stay includes a complimentary wine tasting.
