The residential suburb of Bellville lies 23km east of Cape Town. The area was originally a wagon stop for farmers bringing their produce to Cape Town and was known as Twelfth Mile Stone. The original milestone is still in its original position (along with an historic oil lamppost) and inscribed: XII miles from the townhouse.
The railway line from Cape Town reached Bellville in 1862. The train continues to be a major source of transport for commuters working in Cape Town.
Bellville rainfall occurs mostly in the winter months and average temperatures range between 16° C in winter to 27° C in summer.
At the last consensus conducted in 2011, roughly 65% of people in the Bellville area speak Afrikaans.

For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy.

They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
