Constantia is one of the oldest suburbs, most affluent suburbs of Cape Town and is famed for its wine. Situated about 15 kilometres south of the Cape Town CBD, neighbouring Bishopscourt, the area is a major tourist hub outside of the central city area. Apart from its own wine route with centuries-old estates it has a number of fine restaurants with an international flavour. Many of the homesteads along the wine route display Baroque and Cape Dutch architectural styles.
Our represented Villas in Constantia are spacious, multi bedroomed mansions, featuring large terraces, lap pools, and sometimes Tennis Courts. A Constantia Villa is a great choice for a family getaway of opulence and relaxation, with plenty of wine tasting for the connoisseur.

Eagles Nest :
Eagles’ Nest is cradled in a secluded valley high up on the slopes of the historic Constantia mountain range, which forms part of the World Heritage Site, Table Mountain
In 1984, the 38ha farm was purchased by the Mylrea family. After devastating fires that raged through the Cape in the summer of 2000, the farm was mostly destroyed, except for the historic buildings. Being part of the world famous Constantia Valley, known for its award winning wines, we decided to plant the farm with varieties that best suited the unique terroir of Eagles’ Nest.
