Bergvliet, which means " Mountain Streamlet " in Afrikaans and the leafy suburb of Meadowridge are at the heart of the Constantiaberg area. Bergvliet and Meadowridge are highly sought after areas that offer a safe and easy walk to a number of fine schools, sports, shopping and community facilities.
Bergvliet was formerly a large farm owned by Simon van der Stel. The original Cape Dutch farmhouse still stands on a large property on the Western border of Bergvliet. The Bergvliet Farm, as it is known, is a beautiful place with a large dam where many birds congregate. The farm is also a favorite dog walking and running location. This southern suburb is centrally situated and ideal to explore the Constantia wine estates and taking walks in the forest.
