When anyone mentions the name of this magnificent city, thoughts immediately turn to the prominent and famous Table Mountain that serves as its backdrop. Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles, the mountain range that stretches down the Atlantic side of the city, divide it into its various districts.
The coastline is dotted with numerous small villages that form the city’s suburbs, and Cape Town apartments to rent can be foundin all of these areas and in parts of the magnificent Cape Peninsula that stretches down to Cape Point in the extreme South.
