In the heart of the Cape Winelands, where the northern limits of vibrant Stellenbosch meet the wine estates of the Simonsberg, Voliere brings affordable luxury to one of South Africa’s most desirable areas. The area’s wine farms, food markets, nature reserves, al fresco dining scene and cultural events are easily accessible from this well-appointed estate, offering activities from trail runs to family picnics. Add Stellenbosch’s famous educational institutions, as well as the opportunities in the Cape Winelands’ other hubs, and Voliere is the ideal setting for working, studying, and enjoying the beautiful region’s world-famous outdoor lifestyle.
The estate lives up to its name (French for aviary) with contemporary Cape Vernacular homes, designed by the Dennis Moss Partnership, as well as state-of-the-art security, landscaped gardens, co-working space, outdoor gym and perimeter running track. Stellenbosch town centre is just 4,5 km from Voliere, which has direct and easy access to the R44, while joggers, cyclists and nature lovers can easily escape to the surrounding mountains.
Stellenbosch remains a student town at heart, with a youthful energy to its street cafes and students strolling between lectures, but its magnificent Cape Winelands setting has attracted buyers from far and wide. Its leafy avenues are lined with Cape Dutch homes and stately oak trees, recalling the venerable history of South Africa’s second-oldest town, established in 1679 – and followed in 1680 by the farm Patrijse Valleij where Voliere stands today.
The area’s lifestyle and proximity to Cape Town, Franschhoek, Paarl and the airport have made Stellenbosch a business and technology hub, with Technopark and numerous prolific corporate headquarters. With Stellenbosch University featuring as one of the oldest and most renowned learning institutions in the country, Stellenbosch can also boast of many other prominent places of education, which are renowned for their academic excellence and rank without doubt, among the country’s best. Despite its dynamic property market, Stellenbosch’s long-held European charm is unchanged, with a feeling of safety and sophistication to its restaurants, art galleries and university buildings.
