Cape Town, the ideal destination to combine urban lifestyle and wilderness jaunts.
Why live in Cape Town?
Cape Town is a unique location, between the ocean and the mountains, in an exceptional natural setting, known for its beauty and contrasts.
City in renewal, Cape Town is cosmopolitan, active, and creative (the city of designers and artists) and is one of Africa’s most dynamic places. The atmosphere is amicable; one feels at home here. Cape Town is in Table Bay, at the bottom of the famous Table Mountain. As one of the oldest mountains in the world, it overlooks the city and offers breathtaking biodiversity and panorama.
You will admire the idyllic Clifton beach, known for its white sand and small creeks, and Camps Bay, which faces the "12 Apostles" (the 12 mountains). It is the ideal destination if you want to go and live in South Africa.
Its Mediterranean climate offers a mild climate and sunshine all year long. Located in the southern hemisphere, seasons are reversed, so you are sure to spend winter under a radiant sun!
Coworking space in Cape Town
The coworking space in Cape Town is just like Holiworking. Open to the world, it offers an ideal working environment, helps networking, and allows you to meet people from various backgrounds. These premises offer both common spaces and private offices to maintain confidentiality if necessary. You will also have access to meeting rooms for video-conferencing with your colleagues in France.
The Coworking space in Cape Town also focuses on the community, allowing events such as lunches or after works to facilitate extra-professional sharing.
A rich history
The District Six Museum, downtown Cape Town offers a unique space for a 360° dive into its cosmopolitan history. It recounts the history of the district that was once the focal point of the South African melting pot, where tens of thousands of merchants and immigrants lived together, before it was finally exclusively reserved for white people during apartheid.
A walk through the uninhabited area of District Six, together with guides themselves expelled in 1968, offers an exceptional journey back in time to a neighborhood that has now undergone a metamorphosis.
Breathtaking biodiversity and landscapes
Cape Town offers a range of exceptional landscapes, as well as a very rich fauna.
The Table Mountain that overlooks the city, accessible by cable car, offers an exceptional panorama on Table Bay and Lion's Head.
The maritime landscapes are not to be outdone. For thrill lovers, the Birkenhead Peninsula and its many shipping companies allow you to observe or swim with white sharks in full safety.
For thrill seekers, no problem! Tsitsikamma Park satisfies the most daring ones, thanks to the bungee jumping platform on the Bloukrans Bridge, the highest single-arch bridge in the world.
Nature lovers are pampered. Kayak rides, scuba diving, or hiking offer many possibilities for jaunts, far from the city hustle and bustle. Living in South Africa is the guarantee to discover incredible natural landscapes.
The Sanbona Reserve offers a breathtaking meeting with the savannah "Big 5": the lions, the elephants, the buffaloes, the leopards, and the rhinos. Living a real safari on a pickup tailgate is a unique opportunity to be in osmosis with nature.
Finally, the famous Whale Route hiking trail allows you to observe whales along the coast and offers an umpteenth opportunity to admire the wildlife.
World-class wines and gastronomy
South African gastronomy offers countless blends of flavors, which reflect its multi-ethnic population.
Bobotie, a dish imported by the first Dutch settlers and then adopted by the Cape inhabitants, is a good example. Kind of shepherd pie, it offers a blast of flavors, a mix of minced meat, coconut milk, almonds, apricot jam, and curry.
For wine lovers, the country has many wine yards around Cape Town and inland. Stellenbosch, Constantia, and Paarl are well-known as the country’s best.
Finally, for street-food lovers, the lively market of Hout Bay is a MUST. Its many vendors allow you to taste typical South African dishes such as Biltong (strips of dried meat) and fresh seafood.
