Day Trips

We are close enough to easily reach Cape Town, the V&A Waterfront (departure point for trips to Robben Island) and the Table Mountain cableway. Even attractions as far afield as Cape Point, coastal areas like Cape Agulhas (the southernmost tip of Africa) and seaside towns like Hermanus are close enough to be visited as a day trip.

Some Day Trips to enjoy while staying at Asara:
Stroll through Stellenbosch town center – enjoy the oak-lined streets, pavement cafes and interesting shopping.
Attend one of the weekend farmer’s markets on Asara’s doorstep – stall browsing, gourmet foods, a lively atmosphere and people-watching. On Saturday morning the Oude Libertas Slow Market, on Saturdays and Sundays the Root44 market.
