Hearty hospitality, unforgettable food and profound tranquillity are the hallmarks of Provence. But you needn’t go to France to enjoy all that, because Cape Town now has a Provençal guesthouse of its very own. Peaceful Cap Serein Bed and Breakfast offers all of the above – yet it’s right in the heart of one of the world’s greatest destinations!
It’s hard to believe Cap Serein Guest House is such a short drive from the bustling centre of Cape Town. High on the mountain slopes overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay, the only noise you’ll encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the Koi ponds. Recently restored in the style of Provence, Cap Serein is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine.
Your hosts Petra and Kurt are true experts in hospitality. They’ve both run restaurants in their time, and Kurt is a certified Master Chef. So expect superb breakfasts in the sun room with a selection of home-baked pastries getting your day off to a hearty start.
The rooms at Cap Serein are all excellent hideaways too. Each is decorated in its own unique style, and the detached Marseille cottage is an ideal option for long-stay visitors looking for a home from home. Cap Serein guests can also expect secure off-street parking and automatic lights to show the way through the garden at night.
