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.

My husband and I had such an awesome relaxing time at Acara. The place is neat, clean and modern. Fiona is just so friendly, sweet and hospitable! God bless you and your family Fiona. Thanks for a lovely weekend. We will definately come again.
Very relaxing, everyone very friendly.The information file that Fiona provides is very useful.
The kids loved the dogs and my daughter could not wait to feed and tend to the horses in the morning. Really a lovely place and will recommend it to friends and family
