Keeping in touch with our roots
De Haas Luxury Living, the brainchild of Neno Haasbroek, started with our first building in Die Laan, in the same street that Neno grew up. Die Laan 2, opened in 2017, is well known to the local resident as the old “Pastorie” (Vicarage) of the church. We have tried to keep as much of the old house and history in the renovating process.
De Haas Luxury Livings focus is on the historical center of Stellenbosch, walking distance from to all the museums, restaurant & shops. We believe that the best way to explore Stellenbosch is to stroll down the oak lined streets of Stellenbosch and to feel the energy of the town known as Eikestad (Oak City).
Why Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa?
The beautiful little town of Stellenbosch, roughly an hour from Cape Town, lies surrounded by the Stellenbosch Mountains in the Jonkershoek River Valley in one of the most picturesque settings in the Cape.
The second oldest town in South Africa has fondly been called ‘Eikestad’ or city of oaks and its streets are lined with some of the most beautiful surviving examples of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture in the Cape. Dorp Street is a national monument and taking the time to walk around this cosy old part of Stellenbosch, with its secluded lanes, water furrows, cosmopolitan restaurants and coffee bistros, with superb views of mountain, vineyards and orchards, is an idyllic morning venture.
The name ‘Stellenbosch’ is almost synonymous with the wine industry. Not only does it have the oldest wine route in the country, and arguably the most famous, but the town has one of the most modern experimental wineries in the world, and the only viticultural and oenological department in the country at its university.
South Africa’s oldest music school, the famous Stellenbosch Conservatoire, has its home in this important cultural centre, and there is a collection of galleries and museums housing national and international art collections worth viewing. For the nature lover there are a number of excellent hikes in the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. You can start to your tour right from the front door of Die Laan 2! Many of the historical buildings are close by and it is possible to discover most of Stellenbosch on foot.
