Hearty hospitality, fine food and profound tranquility are the hallmarks of  the Provence. But you needn’t go to France to enjoy all that, because Cape Town has a Provençal farmhouse of its very own at Cap Serein.

Petra and Kurt welcome you to their mountain slope home overlooking the fishing port of Hout Bay. The only noise you’ll encounter here is chirping birds and the occasional splash from the Koi ponds. Restored in the style of the Provence, Cap Serein is about peace, quiet and exceptional cuisine.

Your hosts Petra and Kurt are true experts in hospitality. They’ve both run restaurants in their time, and Kurt is a certified Master Chef. So expect superb breakfasts in the sunroom with cooked fare and a selection of home-baked pastries getting your day off to a hearty start.

"Cap Serein Guest House is a beautifully situated, nice guest house. The rooms are spacious, and attached to it there is a beautiful bathroom, there is even a little fireplace which is really nice in the evenings. There is plenty of privacy...Both the breakfast and the dinner were really delicious, it felt like we were in a 5-star restaurant. In the garden there is a jacuzzi and a swimming pool which is amazing, there is also a terrace with a fabulous view of Houtbay"
