Welcome to Stellenbosch – South Africa’s second oldest town and most inspiring wine, food, art and cultural destination.

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.

Here are some hot desk and Stellenbosch workcation options:
