South Africa is known for its vast and varied landscapes that stretch from rolling hills to valleys. The country is home to world-renowned shorelines, beautiful national game parks, and friendly people from a spectrum of colourful cultures. One province often touted as the most exciting when it comes to natural splendour and social atmosphere is the Western Cape. As local luxury property specialists, we at Fine & Country South Africa know that prospective renters enjoy finding a property to rent in the Western Cape for several reasons. We explore these reasons below, and whether a move to this awe-inspiring region at the southernmost point of Africa is right for you.


  1. Varied weather and diverse topography


While the Western Cape is known for its Mediterranean climate, you will experience different kinds of weather based on where you rent your property. For the most part, however, temperatures are dry and temperate in summer, and winters cool down significantly with increased rainfall and wind. Those who find the right property to rent in the Western Cape may even spot snow-capped mountain peaks if they live close enough to the Cederberg Wilderness. Travel south to the coastline, and your view is lined with magnificent mountains, travel northward, and you will find yourself in the semi-desert region of the famed Karoo. From wildflower displays and lush forests, to the majestic Cape Winelands, relocating to this province will always leave you in reverence of nature.


  1. There is plenty to do and see


No matter your lifestyle and the kind of property you wish to rent, the Western Cape will have the right home for you. The province has much to do, especially since it attracts so many tourists annually. Whale watching, water sports like kitesurfing or water biking, wine-tasting, and even enjoying a scenic ride in a cable car up Table Mountain are all activities one can explore. Whether you are the kind to relish in a relaxing sunset cruise with champagne, or if you have a bucket list of must-see spots to visit along the Garden Route, then this is certainly the place to stay.


  1. A vibrant melting pot of cultural pursuits


The Western Cape is known for areas, such as Cape Town, which are eclectic cosmopolitans of creative enterprises, arts, music, and even fashion. Here you will find rare aesthetics, unique dining experiences, as well as on-stage and street performances that offer a fascinating glance at the innovation of locals living there. Finding a property to rent in this province means that you are always close to art galleries, museums, and a bustling nightlife that never seems to sleep.
