Nestled against the slopes of Table Mountain’s Lion’s Head, in one of the finest positions in Clifton, this elegant mansion has much to offer.
21 Nettleton’s extensive gardens with their gigantic granite boulders, refreshing swimming pool and terraces, offer a tranquil hideaway in which to relax and unwind. Enjoy an early morning yoga session on the lawn, a cycle along the Atlantic Seaboard to Chapman’s Peak, or a guided hike leading from the private gate at the back of the garden up with access to the famous UNESCO World Heritage Nature Reserve, which includes Lion’s Head and Table Mountain. Lion’s Head is one of the most popular hiking trails in Cape Town, offering spectacular 360-degree views of Robben Island, the City Bowl, the Hottentot Holland Mountains (the foothills of the winelands) as well as the coastlines of Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay, extending along the Twelve Apostles Mountains, Lion’s Head, Signal Hill and Table Mountain.
A guest’s stay is guaranteed to be filled with experiences as captivating as the views. The team at 21 Nettleton craft experiences entirely for you. Enjoy lazy lunches and intimate dinners on one of the many terraces, patios, decks and dining areas. Experience sundowners and canapés on the balcony, high-teas in the lounge, or after-dinner drinks by the fire. Make use of the lush gardens with a private barbeque or let them pack a romantic picnic basket for you and suggest a scenic spot.
21 Nettleton boasts a fine wine list in partnership with Buitenverwachting, a historic wine estate in the Constantia Valley, “Cape Town’s vineyard”. Within 15km of the city centre, it is a great opportunity to explore its natural beauty and renowned South African wine. 21 Nettleton can also bring the experience to you, offering private wine tastings with an experienced sommelier.
