The attraction of the City
Cape Town, also known as “the mother city”, is the oldest urban centre in South Africa. From its roots as a seventeenth-century Dutch settlement and British colonial capital, modern-day Cape Town is a proudly South African city known around the world for its natural beauty, enviable lifestyle and stable investment climate.
Cape Town Surrounds
Many of Cape Town’s surrounding areas are nestled between the foot of Table Mountain and the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. From the jet-set lifestyle of Camps Bay, Bantry Bay and Clifton to the residential ambience and historical homes of Tamboerskloof, Higgovale, and Oranjezicht, Cape Town has a wealth of properties for sale to suit any taste.
Life in Cape Town can best be described as elegant and relaxed. Capetonians, as the locals are called, are known for their enjoyment of leisure activities, including surfing, trips to the beach, wine tasting, and sampling the excellent cuisine for which Cape Town has gained an international reputation.
The city has also developed an internationally competitive business sector, focused on property development, high-value tourism, film and media, and most recently – IT, software development and finance. These modern and clean industries continue to drive growth and investment in Cape Town despite challenging economic conditions around the world.
