Bellville is a residential suburb of Cape Town, about 25 km outside of the city centre, on the N1 towards Stellenbosch and Paarl. Bellville lies in the Tygerberg hills with beautiful views of the Stellenbosch Mountains and offers easy access to Cape Town's beaches and the city's attractions. With a good selection of accommodation in Bellville, the suburb is ideally placed for quick access to the winelands and for keen golfers, the Bellville golf course is just minutes away.
Bellville is close to Welgemoed, home to the 278 ha Tygerberg Nature Reserve. Here you can do a 7.5 km hike with incredible views, on a clear day, of the entire peninsula from the top. The Durbanville Wine Route, with nine estates of top-quality wines, is close to Cape Town and easy to explore in a day and the views from this area are spectacular - looking onto Table Mountain from various aspects. Sanlam's Art Gallery, in Bellville, offers one of the largest corporate collections of South African art and is worth a visit.
