There are some truly magnificent views offered by accommodation establishments in Cape Town and Colona Castle definitely has more than its fair share. It has breathtaking views over False Bay, a lake and surrounding mountain range and at night, Colona Castle looks out over hundreds of glittering lights.
Colona Castle Manor House is one of the Leading Independent Hotels of South Africa and a member of inspirational places. Built in 1927, Colona Castle is situated just below scenic Boyes Drive. This is the historic playground of the rich and famous of the early 1900’s, who built mansions overlooking False Bay to take in the beautiful life-extending fresh sea air. Cecil John Rhodes lived out his final years in the area and is rumoured to credit four extra years to the invigorating fresh air.
The unique geography of this part of Cape Town gives Colona Castle a Mediterranean climate all year round. In Summer, the Constantia valley can get incredibly hot. But here on the mountainside a gentle breeze keeps the area cooler. In Winter, Colona Castle is protected from the fierce winds that blow across False Bay and strangely enough enjoys temperatures warmer than the rest of the Peninsula. This unique micro-climate adds to the luxury and the beauty of Colona Castle.
Colona Castle offers sanctuary and beauty in a wonderful environment. From this very central base, you can enjoy the Cape. Constantia a few minutes away, the beautiful postcard towns of Kalk Bay and Simon's Town, the penguins are a few minutes away too. Easy access to Cape Point and a scenic drive to Stellenbsoch along the coast. Wonderful shopping, great golf and magnificent views....all within the comfort of Colona Castle.
Nicole and Michael and their staff will ensure your holiday experience is magnificent and very comfortable.
