Proud heritage of the southwestern Cape are its traditional Cape Dutch houses. Most are thatched, gabled and whitewashed; others are flat-roofed double-storeyed and clearly of classical inspiration. All are dignified and no two are identical. TO each a story is attached and together, their stories chronicle the life of settlers at the Cape over the past three hundred years. In their often magnificent mountain settings. Cape Dutch houses form an integral part of South Africa’s varied culture.
