Ellerman House at Bantry Bay on Cape Town’s glinting Atlantic Seaboard is set apart not only as a guest sanctuary of unabridged distinction, but also on the basis of its spectacular private art collection. The collection spans more than a century and is representative of numerous genres including contemporary works. At the Ellerman House Art Gallery, works in the collection are rotated for guests to enjoy during their stay. Additionally, there are two unique out-of-house art tours which Ellerman House guests can take with a private guide: the Art in the City Experience and the Art in the Winelands Experience.
