‘Wine Down’ With Wonderful Views


“Imagine relaxing at the end of a day of homeworking with a glass of lovely wine from the estate’s own vineyard. From your balcony, you might spot a buck wandering by at the water’s edge; or see a Peregrine Falcon soar across the blue lagoon towards the distant Kogelberg Mountains,” says Penny Streeter.

“Instead of the daily commute, you have nothing more taxing after work at Benguela Cove than to plan tomorrow’s early morning kayak trip, say, or a cycle ride on the 11km track before you settle down to calls and web meetings for the day.”

The estate offers a popular investment choice for South African and foreign buyers alike. Cape Town International Airport is some 80 minutes journey time by car. Residents can conveniently fly to Johannesburg or other national and international city destinations for a meeting or conference.

Hermanus is just 20 minutes drive time from the estate. It offers the further attractions of its shopping and nightlife. The town is an international destination for whale watching, with visitors drawn to the coast between the months of July and November as it becomes the breeding ground of the Southern Right Whale.

Residents of Benguela Cove Lagoon Estate estate enjoy waterfront views and an annual allocation of its award-winning wines from the 70-hectare vineyard. Its vintages are continuing to attract a lot of attention from wine experts and win many awards. This includes 4.5 stars for seven of its wines and a further 4 stars for seven others by Platter’s, which is the leading South African Wine Guide.

The estate includes 10 hectares of olive groves, as well as a working winery, swimming pool, tennis court, running and cycle track, clubhouse and jetty. There is also the popular Moody Lagoon Restaurant in the adjoining entertainment sector of the estate. Residents also have, close by, the 18 hole championship golf course and luxury spa at Arabella Country Estate.
