Fodor's Expert Review Villa Belmonte
33 Belmont Ave., Cape Town, Western Cape, 8001, South Africa
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
In a quiet residential neighborhood on the slopes above the city, this small guesthouse offers privacy and luxury in an attractive Dutch Revival residence. The owners have sought to create the feeling of an Italian villa through the use of marbling, molded ceilings, and natural wood floors. Wide verandas afford superb views of the city, Table Mountain, and Devil's Peak. Rooms have colorful draperies, luxurious finishes, wicker furniture, and small-pane windows. It's a 20-minute walk to the city center.
