Activities to do here at Joie de Vivre


There are plenty of activities for you to enjoy when you come to Joie de Vivre, both on the farm or in the surrounding areas. Nestled in the heart of Cape wine country we are on a wonderful stretch of tourism-friendly land.

With wine tours, cycling tours, horse riding, mountain biking trails, hikes, skydiving, and many more activities you’ll be hard pressed to find a spare moment to just sit and relax at our poolside! On the farm we have plenty of space for you to explore and unwind, and also a nice restaurant to eat at, three meals a day.

However, if you’re like many other travellers (especially those from abroad) who want something a little more daring, then look no further than our list of things to do on our About us page. There are of course many other things to get involved in, especially if you want to venture further inland, or into Cape Town, but for most visitors this will keep you busy for at least a week!

If you live abroad or even just upcountry in Johannesburg or Durban, we would strongly suggest coming to the Cape with a strong idea of what you want to accomplish, even making your own bucket list. Truth is, there won’t be nearly enough time to do everything so best is to have a good plan and try and tick off as much as possible! We can certainly help you once you are here and our staff are knowledgable about the surrounding areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl, Wellington and beyond.

Our favourites include the typical wine tasting, bike tours, horse riding, day trips into the neighbouring small towns, and hikes up in the mountains. Every season is different but thankfully there is something perfectly suited to every season! So whenever you choose to come and stay with us at Joie de Vivre, know that there will be plenty of activities for you to enjoy.
