There is no learn to fly accommodation near Cape Town Airport. But excellent guest houses near Stellenbosch help make up for the extra travelling.
The student pilot guest farm is on a wine estate. The other is surrounded by wine farms yet is only a fifteen minute stroll from historic downtown Stellenbosch.
The guest farm is on a wine farm which nestles in the shadows of the Helderberg mountains. Guests can bask in the peace and tranquility of the winelands whilst enjoying a traditional farm breakfast served personally by the hosts.
It offers student pilots spacious double bedrooms with en suite bathroom, TV, swimming pool, picnic and barbeque area. The nearest beach is 11km away - boat trips and sightseeing tours can be arranged. For flyers who are also golfers, there are 3 golf courses nearby!
At the end of a learn to fly day you can take a stroll along the vineyard trails to the foot of the Helderberg mountain - from which vantage point you can enjoy the evening silhouette of the Peninsula from Cape Point to Table Mountain.
The guest farm is situated 7 km from the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West.
The Guest House - an alternative to the guest farm - has a splendid view from the rise of Stellenbosch Mountain across the historic town to Table Mountain in the distance.
It offers tasteful rooms, service, comfort and attention to detail. But, above all, it's a comfortable place to relax after the day's flying.
Every room has an en suite bathroom, fridge, facilities for making tea and coffee and TV. Hearty breakfasts, featuring fine local produce, are served on the pool side patio, under the thatched lapa or indoors.
The Stellenbosch Guest House also offers self-catering flats with separate entrances from secure off-street parking. Fully equipped kitchens, spacious rooms and comfortable furnishings provide a home-from-home feeling. Doors lead to the garden with crystal pool, braai facilities and colourful birds that nest and feed.
