Ellerman House & Villas , CAPE TOWN, South Africa
High on a hill with to-die-for views of the gorgeous coastline, a stay at Ellerman House feels very much akin to that of a glamorously-seductive French Riviera hideaway.
Once the stately home of Sir John and Lady Ellerman, distinguished shipping magnates and investors, Ellerman House sits perched on the slopes of Lion’s Head in the prestigious Bantry Bay residential area with one of the most spectacular ocean views in South Africa.
Within walking distance of the famous Clifton Beach, this elegant Cape Edwardian mansion is also just 10 minutes from the centre of Cape Town and only 45 minutes from the Winelands.
Just 11 luxurious rooms and two sumptuous private villas combine with flawless service, shaded verandas, tiered gardens and a stunning spa, while the hotel's extraordinary South African art collection is not to be missed, especially the Contemporary Gallery.
