ELEVATE YOUR SENSES
Listen to the breeze rustle the olives tree, watch the clouds drift over the Bainskloof Pass and feel the warmth of the sun shining down on Wellington’s premier lifestyle estate. The majestic Hawequa Mountains tower above, silent sentinels that hold your gaze and allow you to immerse yourself in the tranquility of Stadsig’s Cape Vernacular homes. Appreciate the stillness of this mountainous corner of the Cape Winelands, in the knowledge that Wellington town centre is just minutes from your stoep.
AREA & LIFESTYLE
Less than 2km down Route 301 from Stadsig is the centre of Wellington, one of the principal Winelands towns with its own wine route of a dozen historic farms. Wellington’s excellent location means that Cape Town, Paarl and the whole Winelands region are within easy day-tripping distance, offering a range of world-class facilities and fun activities. Paarl is famous for its high schools, Stellenbosch University also needs no introduction and Wellington itself has a campus of Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT), offering courses including business and education. Wellington’s medical facilities include a Medicross centre and neighbouring Paarl is a healthcare hub, where the Mediclinic hospital provides services from 24-hour emergency treatment to a maternity ward.
SILENCE OF THE SENTINELS
When it’s time to relax, the Winelands region offers a lifetime’s worth of historic wineries, gourmet restaurants and outdoor activities between its vineyard-clad mountains. Driving north from Stadsig, you cross the nearby Bainskloof Pass to mountain-ringed Tulbagh or head straight up Route 44 to Riebeek-Kasteel and the open skies of the Swartland. Wellington also offers numerous activities in the immediate surroundings, including hiking and mountain biking trails, horse riding, and even game drives at Bontebok Ridge Reserve. If you’re feeling adventurous, hike the kloofs of rugged Limietberg Nature Reserve to swim in rock pools and discover Khoisan cave paintings. Then again, Stadsig’s scenic location at the foot of Groenberg mountain makes sitting on the stoep a tempting option, perhaps sipping a wine from the picturesque Bovlei.
