Fresnaye is situated against Lion´s Head between Sea Point and Clifton offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean from this mountain-side residential area. Fresnaye has some of the most expensive real estate along the Cape Town Atlantic Seaboard. It offers self-catering apartments and bed and breakfast establishments and is near to great bars, restaurants and beaches. It has sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, Table Bay and Robben Island and is one of the most wind-free suburbs in Cape Town.
The streets here, as the suburb’s name indicates, are named after places in France and the magnificent views take in sweeping vistas of the Atlantic, Table Bay and Robben Island. The suburb gives one easy access to the various museums, galleries and alleyways of the city centre and is just minutes from the V&A Waterfront.
The trendy Atlantic beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are literally just up the road, within walking distance, and hanging out on one of Clifton’s four beaches, separated by granite boulders, or the long palm-lined stretch of sand that has made Camps Bay so popular amongst the jet set crowd, is a major draw card to the area.
Sunsets on this part of the peninsula are legendary and Fresnaye is no exception, particularly because of its situation on the slopes of a mountain. Fresnaye is close to Sea Point’s Main Road with an eclectic offering of shops, bars, clubs and restaurants that give it its own cosmopolitan flavour and Sea Point’s promenade is popular with locals, walkers, joggers and the pram brigade.
