Our neighborhood:

We are close to the beaches,  shopping centres, golf courses and the winelands.   Somerset West has a country feel to it.   The neighborhood is considered as safe as you would find in cities elsewhere. The countryside surrounding Somerset West can be considered to be one of the prettiest in South Africa.  Stellenbosch 15km from us,  is an old university town with lovely oak trees and lots of wine farms and exceptional restaurants en route.
