The history of the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa is both long and venerable. This lovely historic resort dates back to the mid-17th century, when it once constituted a portion of Willem Adriaan van der Stel’s massive homestead. As the Colonial governor for the Dutch colony of Cape Town, his enormous landholding produced a vast majority of the settlement’s food supply. While the current structure that now constitutes the resort first appeared in 1817, it did not become known as the Erinvale Estate until Edward Strangman acquired the location some five decades later. A transplanted Irishman, he bestowed the name “Erin Vale” upon the building in honor of his beloved homeland. The next three generations of Strangman’s descendants would go on to live at Erinvale. Today, the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa is one of South Africa’s most luxurious holiday destinations. Tucked away within the historic Cape Winelands of South Africa, the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa is surrounded by countless cultural attractions that guests will find simply amazing. The resort in particular is situated in the heart of Helderberg, which is home to the famous wine-growing estates of Vergelegen, Lourensford, and Morgenster. Cape Town is just a short distance from the Erinvale as well, along with its grand beaches and renowned historical landmarks. Originally founded as a remote Colonial outpost during the 1600s, the city has since become an international hotspot for vacationers the world over. Travelers have been especially drawn in by Cape Town’s close proximity to many natural wonders, including a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Cape Floristic Region. Nowhere is better to explore all of these remarkable locations than at the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa.
