Situated in the Winelands between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, Acara is nestled in a valley called "Happy Vale" amidst scenic vineyards with beautiful views of the Helderberg Mountains. There are 4 exclusive cottages - Acara can sleep up to 12 people. Peaceful and quiet, all rooms have heating/cooling, high speed, wireless internet and ipod facilities. All are normally offered on a self catering basis - they are fully equipped, but breakfast is also offered on request. 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.
Golf: We are situated in the middle of MANY of the best courses the Cape has to offer! Superb location!
Family friendly: If you are travelling with children, I’d like to say that we do have an un-netted pool, and 2 (very small!) streams on the property – important to bear in mind with very young children. We also have animals... :-)
Romantic: Romantic willow trees and beautifully landscaped gardens. Gravel pathways to meander though, and benches and private area's to sit and sip a glass of wine or two.
