With its relaxing setting, Moores End is ideal as a base for exploring the 3 local Wine Routes: Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl. There are many excellent restaurants in the area, and a berry farm for afternoon tea just around the corner. Sit beside the pool with a book and admire the mountains, with only the guinea fowl to disturb you. Or, for the more energetic, there's a tennis court!

10 minutes from Stellenbosch, 15 minutes from Paarl and Franschhoek, 45 minutes from Cape Town, 30 minutes to the beach (Strand) and 40 minutes to the Airport.
