“40 Winks” is situated in the beautiful town of Somerset West, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and is an ideal base to explore the many attractions of the Western Cape that will make your stay both enjoyable and memorable.

Surrounded by the majestic Hottentots Holland mountain range, at the entrance to the Winelands and only 20 minutes drive from Cape Town International Airport, Somerset West offers a wide variety of things to see and do. The sandy beaches of Strand and Gordon’s Bay are only 15 minutes drive away.

There are 3 premier golf courses in the area including the popular Erinvale. In addition to the local historical farms of Vergelegen, Morgenster and Lourensford, there are several well-known wine estates on the Stellenbosch route which begins 5km from our front door ! We are also close to the Helderberg Nature Reserve, Somerset Mall (over 200 shops), the popular Lord Charles Hotel & Conference Centre (3km), Monkey Town and Cheetah Outreach. Stellenbosch University is a scenic 16km drive from us with some tempting stopovers en route, including Mooiberge farm stall which is well known for its strawberries and home-made preserves.
