And you thought less was more. With lavish Mediterranean touches throughout, everything about this classic villa is grandly proportioned, including a particularly arresting view of the peninsula, surrounding mountains and warmer waters of the False Bay coastline.

Located in the epicentre of Greater Cape Town and gracing the mountainside above a tranquil Lake District on the warmer False Bay coastline. Colona Castle is a splendid Small Luxury Boutique Hotel, a magical Villa and a 5-Star graded Mediterranean retreat offering character, exclusivity and infinite charm from which to explore fascinating Cape Town, the Cape Peninsula and the Winelands.
