Welcome to Acara

Relax and enjoy your holiday in the Winelands of South Africa at Acara.

Situated on Winery Road, between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, Acara is nestled in a valley called "Happy Vale" amidst scenic vineyards and has beautiful views of the Helderberg Mountains.

Acara is a derivation of the Gaelic word for 'friend', which your host, Fiona, thinks very appropriate for both South Africa as a whole, and Acara in particular!

There are 4 exclusive cottages - Acara can sleep up to 12 people. Peaceful and quiet, all rooms have heating/cooling, high speed, wireless internet and ipod facilities. All are normally offered on a self catering basis - they are fully equipped, but breakfast is also offered on request. Please see the accommodation page for full details.

A fantastic location for visiting the entire area - from Cape Town to Franschoek & beyond, from the nearby beach (5 mins) to Hermanus, and all the many golf courses in the area.

Fiona offers exceptional hospitality and can give many suggestions on day trips, restaurants and things to do in the region.

A great base to explore the area, or to simply relax!
