Bonne Esperance is a charming Victorian Villa in the heart of Stellenbosch with wrap-around veranda, cast iron mouldings and corner-turret. The villa was originally built in 1901. The house retained the same charm and ambiance of that by-gone era but with the added luxuries of the modern age. The historic town center of Stellenbosch can be reached by a mere 5-minute stroll along the oak-lined Van Riebeeck street and old mill stream. Bonne Esperance is the perfect base from which to explore the Western Cape.
