The original plan had been to spend about 3 nights in part of Cape Town, followed by 2 nights - the final nights of the trip - in the Wine Lands, possibly Sellenbosch or Franschoek. Part of the reason for this was, as it's the rural aspects of South Africa rather than city life that we wish to major on. Also, this perhaps allowed us to spend our last nights in a nice lodge, relaxing and enjoying the wine, our driving pretty much over.
However, reading the Cape Town forums, it seems lots of people visit the wine lands as a day trip. Also, there is possibly a larger choice of good value accommodation with the city, in one residential area or another.
Should we reconsider our original plan and stay in CT the whole time, or stick with the original plan?
If we stay in CT, should we consider staying in 2 different areas, or just find one convenient area, with good access to both CT's attractions and roads out? If the latter, which areas should we aim to stay in. We aren't interested in beaches for beach life, but do want an area with good restaurants, especially where we can find informal seafood ones.
Should we consider something else completely different? Opinions would be most welcome!
