Helderberg Estate Suburb of Somerset West

Helderberg Estate - Sal defenitief weer daar bly. Baie mooi omgewing. Is mal oor die lanings bome in die strate. Gee so 'n rustige atmosfeer. Will definitely return. Beautiful environment and such a peaceful atmosphere. Love the lanes and trees.

Beautiful views - High up on Helderberg Mountain with beautiful sea and mountain views. Close to 7 world class golf courses, and within 5 minutes of the Somerset Mall and also the town centre.

Lovely Somerset West - Being at the centre of the Winelands and 30 minutes away from the city of Cape Town, guests are guaranteed that they will not run out of things to do during their stay at the Berrydel. Just within in the Helderberg, guests can go wine tasting, quad-biking, horse riding, fly-fishing and walking in the Nature Reserve. There is a local theatre, bowling alley, as well as malls, art galleries and pubs. Located closely to all major tourist attractions,Somerset strikes a balance between relaxation and entertainment. Somerset is also close to some of South Africa’s top restaurants and top ranked golf courses. Throughout the courses there are majestic mountain backdrops, panoramic views of the surrounding hillside vineyards and sparkling views of the ocean.

Somerset West - Somerset West is ideally situated and it’s just a short drive from a very upmarket mall. It’s close to the Winelands with beaches nearby, excellent restaurants to chose from including family restaurants. Lush and green, there’s also abundant birdlife.
