The great esCAPE !
With Table Mountain as a backdrop, beautiful beaches and a relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere, it isn’t surprising that everyone wants to head for Cape Town.
It’s a city overflowing with imagination, and without a doubt one of the most creative places to be. Artists, designers and chefs have taken on the challenge of dilapidated buildings with an incredible positive energy that permeates the streets.
A twelve-hour flight from France with no time difference, Cape Town is a year-round destination that will capture your heart.
A vitamin-drenched city.
The Zeitz MoCAA: a temple to contemporary art
A few months ago, the discovery of the old grain silo made of embellished concrete was the last piece in the puzzle for the city to welcome the largest contemporary art museum in Africa.
In addition to its collections, even the architecture of the building is indicative of Cape Town’s bold character. As if scooped out by a spoon, the 42 tubes that previously stored corn now open onto an atrium measuring 27 metres that is symbolic of the metamorphosis the city has undergone.
The metamorphosis began in 1991 with the abolition of apartheid. Although Cape Town has not yet managed to solve all its problems, it aims to be tolerant, open to differences, art and more specifically street art. Some walls are covered with veritable masterpieces of graffiti.

EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN TASTE
And there is something for everyone!
With great places to stay in private houses, relaxed restaurants with white tablecloths and stars to their name, local arts and crafts in chic design boutiques, converted factories and districts populated by a rainbow crowd set in strikingly beautiful natural landscapes, Cape Town is everything at once.
