What to do at the Estate and in the surrounding Cape Winelands
Swimming & Relaxing by the Pool
There is a beautiful pool to relax and enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains and vineyard. Afternoons are for long lazy walks, snoozing by the pool or a therapeutic rooftop massage beneath a bedouin tent.
A visit to the Estate would not be complete without playing the wonderful greens and fairways of the winelands. Chauffeur driven tours, great food, inviting accommodation, and proximity to more than a dozen courses, some just 5 minutes away, make Palmiet Valley Estate the perfect base camp for golfing parties and tours.
