The 32 Best Winter Accommodation Specials in The Cape

Mountains, vineyard, sea? Whatever your preference, these winter specials mean you don’t have to stay at home just because it's cold.

There’s something hopelessly romantic about a winter getaway: blustery coastal walks, fireside board games fuelled by red wine and hot chocolate, view-drenched outdoor braais… especially when they’re being offered for less than the usual price tag!

Need more convincing? We’ve rounded up a list of escapes that are offering fabulous deals for the rainy season. From a fully serviced designer getaway in the Winelands to a stylish innercity sojourn, and even a no-frills self-catering eco-cabin in nature, these are our picks of winter specials in the Cape.

Do you know of any places offering unmissable winter deals? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below.

Fossil Hills

Fossil Hills: The Best Cape Town Accommodation Specials

Where McGregor
Fossil Hills on Thornvilla, a working wine farm in McGregor, is like a getaway straight out of a romantic novel. Named after fossils discovered on the property, the escape sleeps 44 people across four self-catering cottages, one house, and one guesthouse.

The cosy interior is the ideal spot to curl up with a good book, while the scenic surrounds are made for hiking, 4×4, and mountain biking trails. You could also take one of fishing rods or go for a kayak in the sparkling dam, before enjoying a wine tasting and game drive at one of the nearby wine farms. Animal lovers will revel in the avid birdlife, abundant both on the farm and at the neighbouring Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve. With a number of exciting outdoor activities, and quaint, cosy accommodation, Fossil Hills is the perfect peaceful place to rest your head in quiet comfort.

    Hi

    We are a small group of 5 older ladies, we call ourselves the Amen sisters. Whoever says something, we tumble in and say, “Amen” to this or that. Quite funny sometimes, because the topics we discuss!!

    Now, we have a sister who is coming of age (50)! and we are sourcing possible accomodation sites where we can celebrate her bday on 17 October.

    Please advise us on this issue
