For arts and culture

Local art flourishes in both Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, from open-air sculpture gardens to intimate galleries featuring paintings and ceramics, in styles that run the gamut from classical to modern to impressionist to distinctly African. There’s something for everyone, and there’s an excellent chance you’ll find something to fall in love with.

The town of Stellenbosch was founded in 1679, making it the second oldest European settlement after Cape Town. Franschhoek, meanwhile, was settled by French Huguenot settlers not long afterwards, sparking the region’s wine industry, which has become deservedly famous in the more than 300 years since. History and culture have blended to create a unique heritage that is expressed in monuments, museums and local festivals and events we hope our guests find as intriguing and interesting as we do.
