The city centre is the most centralised location to stay in Cape Town. It offers guests so many choices within a minimal radius from their accommodation. From bars and restaurants to shopping and sightseeing, the Cape Town city centre is a hive of activity and a treasure trove waiting to be discovered.
The villas in the city centre are all about convenience; they may not offer far-reaching sea views but guests will still get to see the majestic Table Mountain and the mixed architecture of the city from their windows. Most of the city-based activities and experiences will take place within a short distance from our city centre villas; sometimes within walking distance even.
Here are our top four picks for villas in the city centre. However, if you’re looking for something a little different, scroll through the rest of the villas located in the Cape Town city centre.
