Activities/Attractions: The village of Somerset West is a pleasing object as it breaks upon the view about a mile before it is reached. Travellers ... behold the lovely little village slumbering in the centre of the valley, with its neat, white-washed houses and well cultivated gardens, with extensive vineyards and farmhouses in the distance, surrounded by rocky mountains which rise a considerable altitude.
Nowadays Somerset West has grown bigger and more modern, but we are surrounded by the Hottentots Holland Mountains with the Helderberg as our “name giver” to the area. 600 acres of forest, fynbos & vineyards, yet 10 minutes from the beach and close to Cape Town.
