Description

Situated in the heart of the Winelands near Stellenbosch, Acara is nestled in a valley called "Happy Vale" amidst scenic vineyards with beautiful views of the Helderberg Mountains. Fiona offers exceptional hospitality and can offer suggestions on day trips, restaurants and things to do in the region.

The three cottages are all beautifully appointed, each with double doors leading onto a private terrace or deck area. They all have beautiful views to the sparkling heated swimming pool, large gardens, paddocks and of course to the mountains beyond. Acara usually offers accommodation on a self-catering basis due to the excellent restaurants in the area, but a hamper breakfast comprising warm croissants and fresh juice can be supplied on request.

04 January 2013

Acara is ine of the best locations we have ever been in South Africa. Fiona and Dave are perfect hosts, present when you need them. The cottages, the garden and the pool, all in very good condition and well maintained. A nice scenery with the surrounding mountains. We will stay there again and recommend it to our friends.
