About Clouds Estate

With one of the most celebrated views in the Cape, Clouds Estate is an undiscovered gem in the heart of the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek Winelands. Situated at the top of the Helshoogte Pass, this unique 4.5 hectare estate overlooks the beautiful Banhoek Valley, edged by the majestic Drakenstein with Simonsberg taking pride of place in the foreground.

The modern B&B guest house features seven beautifully appointed spacious bedrooms, all with full en-suite bathrooms and large covered balconies. Furniture has been carefully selected both internationally and locally to create a simplistic yet cutting-edge feel.

In addition, we offer five self-catering villas with magnificent views, a double bedroom, bathroom, lounge with air-conditioning, DStv, sliding doors to the patio and fully-fitted kitchenette. Each cottage has its own private patio with barbecue facility and access to the swimming pool.

Furthermore, Clouds Estate offers two conference facilities with the ability to change from one large conference/wedding hall to two smaller conference rooms. Clouds has perfected a synergy between corporate and leisure activities. This makes it suitable for corporate functions, workshops, launches, year-end functions, and seminars.

A beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony site is situated in front of the guest house with a breathtaking mountain backdrop. The bar offers the best vantage point of the uninterrupted mountain and Franschhoek valley views, and is ideal for pre-drinks.

“A perfectly located establishment, tucked in between the Mountains of Stellenbosch and its renowned vineyards, our stay at Clouds Estate was completely magical.I travel often enough to know when a place truly is a small paradise. Though their brochure and pictures are beautiful, it still cannot describe how Clouds Estate fits and strives to exceed its benchmark. The interior design of the room and the dining area are modern, relaxing, and comforting.I stayed in a stunning room with amazing mountain views that could compel you for hours. The luxurious room was fitted with everything expected...
