Set above and just south of the Southern Suburbs lie the salubrious settlements of Constantia, Tokai and Bishopscourt, where enormous houses sit in leafy grounds behind tall walls. Groot Constantia, the Cape's oldest vineyard, is located in the area, and land that has not been sequestered by villas and mansions is given over to viticulture, polo and parkland. Given the exclusivity of the area, there is no real hub, and the few amenities on offer are discretely tucked away. But with the Southern Suburbs, Hout Bay and False Bay all nearby, the local residents are within a short car journey from most major facilities including schools and hospitals. A trip to the city centre takes around 25 minutes, but perhaps double that time during rush-hour.
