Ellerman House

Cape Town, South Africa

Location The Edwardian mansion that is Ellerman House has the best sea views in all Cape Town, set high above the ocean in Bantry Bay. The Port of Cape Town is 10 minutes away by car. First-rate restaurants such as the Pot Luck Club and the Test Kitchen are easily accessible.

Why it’s special Ellerman House boasts 11 rooms, two suites and two three-bedroom villas, and there’s a library, a spa, swimming pool, two lounges and three outdoor terraces. Best of all, there’s a brandy lounge, a wine gallery and a champagne cellar.

What to look for The astonishing corkscrew-shaped wine gallery, surely the only such creation in the world. It’s stocked with 7,500 di erent bottles, representing the cream of South Africa’s wines, many of them rare treats bought especially at auction. Guests have access to an iPad providing detailed notes on every wine in the collection.

Best bit The champagne cellar, stocked exclusively with rare and special vintages of Dom Pérignon champagne.

Top tip Take advantage of your proximity to South Africa’s Winelands and head out on a bespoke tour to Stellenbosch, Hemel-en-Aarde or Constantia.
