Forget about Napa and the California Wine Country. NOthing can compare to the beautyof South African Wine Country. The Cloud estate is run by Mr. and Mrs. Immelmann who take pride in every aspect of the property. THe dinner and wine pairings cannot be be compared to anything in California with its high traffic

Breathtaking views, well appointed suites, cozy, friendly, a home away from home, attention to detail , these are some of the adjectives I could use to describe Clouds and then I could wax lyrical for another 10 minutes, my advice: book a suite asap you 'll not be sorry!

We stayed in the Villa. Amazing views. Beautiful rooms, great attention to detail. Excellent breakfast. Very friendly and hospitable hosts and staff. Inviting lounge with big fireplace. Very close to several top wine estates and restaurants.

Spent two nights at Clouds with my girlfriend and we can't say enough nice things about the quality of the property and service provided by the staff. This is truly a top notch estate and is surprisingly affordable. Estate is conveniently located in between Stellenbosch and Franshoek.

Third stay at Clouds. On top of the Helshoogte pass, a beautiful view to the mountains is paired with excellent accomodation. Only downside is the frquent use of the estate for weddings or other venues.

This is the third time we have stayed at Clouds, on our trips to South Africa, and hopefully it won't be our last. The view across the valley is so magnificent, that it takes your breath away, and almost brings one to tears. We stayed this year in the quaint little cottage's. With staying 8 nights we thought we would...

My partner and I arrived on Friday afternoon and were warmly welcomed and shown to our luxuriously decadent room in the Villa. If it weren't such a beautiful day we would have confined ourselves to the charming bedroom. Situated in the hills of Stellenbosch, close to Franschoek this gem is close to fantastic restaurants and wine farms! Definitely recommended for...

The 4 days of my life at this hotel was the best holiday I've ever had so far. It started on the first day when we got to our fabulous room and saw our heavy luggages already carried in there for us. The room was really spacious having a small kitchen and a big balcony looking over to the mountains...
