Boasting a proud history extending over 300 years, Vergelegen has carefully conserved the items of heritage that has formed the foundation of Cape Culture in South Africa, based on the layered historicism of links to the Netherlands, Far East, England and France.
Over the centuries, the owners of Vergelegen have contributed to the preservation of the unique facets of the Estate, ranging from the ancient Camphor trees, believed to have been planted by van der Stel in 1700, the "Royal Oak" grown from an acorn taken from Blenheim Palace in 1928, through to sensitively revamped hospitality facilities that blend seamlessly into the centuries old landscape.
