Constantia, Cape Town


Constantia at a glance

Constantia is an upmarket area and is situated in the Western Cape, a few kilometres south of Table Mountain and the City Bowl. Constantia is one of the oldest townships of Cape Town and is famed for its beautiful scenery, lush hiking trails, golf courses, green belts and wine route. The first major estate, Groot Constantia, was established in 1684 by the Dutch Colonial Governor of Cape Town, Simon van der Stel. Today Constantia is home to 10 award-winning wine farms and has its own official wine route, many offering fine dining and family picnics with tables nestled under the giant Oak trees. The forest and rural atmosphere combined with the open spaces, picturesque vineyards, beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, long winding roads, nature reserves, horses and country appeal make Constantia one of the most beautiful and sought-after areas for living in Cape Town.

The Constantia Valley with its excellent boutique hotels, upmarket shops, galleries, business parks, private and public schools, horse riding and mountain bike trails and variety of sports centres and gyms make this area not only popular for South African families but also foreigners and investors. The Constantia Valley is characteristic for the wide range and different types of properties spreading from smaller family homes to several acres even, lifestyle manned security and gated estates, lock up and goes through to retirement developments. Top schools cater for local and international education for foreigners. Buyers are willing to pay a premium for living the “Constantia Lifestyle”. The well known Constantia Village is a bustling shopping centre where you will find popular restaurants, coffee shops and big brand names trading alongside exclusive boutiques.
