Villa Montebello Guest House is locate in Hout Bay, a 20 minute drive from the Cape Town city centre. Hout Bay beach and its picturesque harbour, with numerous shops and a wide choice of restaurants are close to Villa Montebello. At the end of the day, why not board a boat to admire the sunset, or in the daytime, cruise to the seal island and when it is the season, watch dolphins and even whales swim by. 

The coastal road, the M6, which climbs towards Cape Town will take you in no time to Camps Bay, the cool place to hang out. It’s also a great place to play beach volley, try one of the cosmopolitan restaurants or have a drink at one of the trendy bars.

The main land road will take over to Constantia, and its lush green valley with famous wineries, such as Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia and Buitenverwachting. You can go for wine tasting at one of the estates, buy some of the best South African wines, or enjoy a gourmet meal in one of the old charming wine farms. 

South of Hout Bay, the road to Chapman’s Peak is one of the most scenic drives in the world. Narrow and winding, it offers breathtaking views of the ocean, Hout Bay and its fishing community. 

If you like horse riding, you will enjoy the freedom of long rides on Noordhoek’s infinite beach. The Penguin colony at Boulder’s beach is a unique sight, and more uniquely is the possibility to swim with them.
