We had a truly great stay at Acara! The cottages were superb and as we were there in winter time we used the fireplace in the evenings, not so much for heating, since there are heated floors but more for the mood. After a full day of work it was great to get back "home".
The pool looked very nice but we didn't try it out, will for sure do that the next time we are down there if it's summertime then..
They had two Rhodesian Ridgebacks that looked intimidating but they were very cuddly and nice!
Locationwise, well.. What can we say? The absolut top spot to stay at when you are visiting vineyards. There is a restaurant which is awesome, 96 Winery Rd, just a few hundred meters away so it's walking distance.
Will we be back? Yeah, you can count on it!

- Situated in the Winelands, between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, Acara is nestled in a valley amidst scenic vineyards. A fantastic location for visiting the entire area - from Cape Town to Franschhoek & beyond, but yet peaceful and quiet. Beautifully appointed rooms, a sparkling heated swimming pool and large landscaped gardens. Amazing views to the Helderberg Mountains. A place to relax! ... more less
