Glen Avon Lodge is situated in the heart of the Constantia Valley Winelands, with easy access to the M3 highway connecting you to central Cape Town, the V&A Waterfront and the south peninsula. The lodge is nestled between vineyards among the historic farms and Cape Dutch architecture, just minutes from award-winning wine estates. This comfortable and private guest house offers relaxation, lazy afternoons, beautiful gardens and mouth-watering gourmet meals; Glen Avon is a member of the exclusive 'Good Cooks and their Country Houses'. Explore diverse Cape Town, visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Cape Point, scale Table Mountain and relax on the white beaches of Camps Bay, while at night you can relax and enjoy a glass of wine in Glen Avon's thatched open-air lapa.
The pool garden has long cushioned loungers for poolside sunbathing or just reading a book, under the shade of the age old Oak trees and numerous umbrellas offering shade from the heat of the day. A refreshing swim may be enjoyed in the 11 metre solar heated salt water pool, which invitingly sparkles in the sunshine. The guest lounge is where, in winter, cosy fireside conversations are enjoyed and new friends are made, as drinks are served with the warm atmosphere of times gone by. External Cape Town attractions are nearby and definitely deserve a visit. A Cable car trip to the Table Mountain summit takes about ten minutes, during which time one can enjoy the most wonderful views of the city and coastline. The Table Mountain National Park with its extra-ordinary floral biodiversity, being the numerous fynbos varieties and the indigenous bird life, makes for wonderful walking, either on the top or one of the many marked walks up the mountain tracks. Constantia Wine Route tours are available daily and the farm restaurants of Jonkershuis and Simons, the River Cafe, Constantia Uitsig, La Colombe, Bistro Sixteen85 and Buitenverwagting are also open daily.
