Full description:

A private haven on the outskirts of Stellenbosch.
Idas Valley is a wonderfully picturesque and secluded part of Stellenbosch, just over 32 km from Cape Town International Airport.

Idas Valley is a wonderfully picturesque and secluded part of Stellenbosch, approximately 32 km from Cape Town International Airport. There, on a verdant slope on the foothills of the Simonsberg mountain is Entabeni farm, named in Xhosa for "a place on the mountain." Entabeni farm is a small paradise in the Cape Winelands.

The newly renovated farmhouse and private residence on Entabeni have been converted into a boutique B&B and private residence. Although located in the midst of nature and set within a country environment, it is only 5 km from central Stellenbosch. It overlooks the stunningly beautiful valley, surrounded by lovely flower gardens, farmlands and encircled by great wineries, award-winning restaurants and unique art galleries.

Entabeni farm has a rich and remarkable history. In 1682, three original farms of the valley (Rustenburg, Idas Valley and Schoongezicht) were granted. Entabeni used to be a part of the original Rustenberg farm (Consolidated High Rustenberg). In 1976, the entire valley was proclaimed a national monument and in 2009 was granted the status of a Grade 1 listed National Heritage Site. Stellenbosch's well-known Health Spa, the Hydro is next door. Two of South Africa's celebrated wine estates, Rustenberg and Glenelly, are just down the road. Several award-winning restaurants and world-renowned wine estates such as Lanzerac (1692), Tokara, Thelema and Delaire Graff, are just a few minutes away.

The property echoes the outstanding beauty of the valley below. With high ceilings, large windows and open spaces, it shows hints of a Palladian villa and suggestions of a French chateau. The manor house has been professionally restored. It is the perfect illustration of pure elegance and comfortable living.

A lifestyle marked by comfort, serenity, elegance and beauty.

It is a secluded sanctuary in a tranquil, bucolic environment in the immediate proximity of all urban activities.
