Consider a Stellenbosch workcation and enjoy an office with a different view. Sure, working from home gets the job done, but for many of us, that same spot in a corner of the bedroom, the dining table or even if you’re lucky enough to have a home office, is getting a bit stale.
Hop on 2021’s workcation trend and switch up your workspace for a change of scenery. Get outdoors for fresh air, feel energised by a vibey, new atmosphere and soak up the hustle and bustle of Stellenbosch – a forever young town filled with energy, creativity and more than one delicious spot to set up for the day.

Bonne Esperance, translated from French, means “good hope.” Staying true to the essence of their name, they aimed to build hope during these trying times. The pop-up coffee shop was opened to keep hope alive for the employees and their families and help supplement their income.
Bonne Esperance wants to be the connection point for locals and visitors to the neighbourhood.
