Parow and Goodwood
The area between Parow and Goodwood is lush and mountainous, with majestic views of the surrounding mountain range and the ocean. This neighbourhood combines the beauty of the Western Cape, with small town living. However, Cape Town is just a stone's throw away, for those who occasionally enjoy the offerings of a big city, or for an easy work commute. The lifestyle in this area is laid back and relaxed, with a friendly community.
