Cape Dutch farmhouse is an authentic 17th century estate, which has since transformed itself into a contemporary home-away-from-home. Although still a working farm – nature and simplicity reign at Babylonstoren. With only 12 cottages guests can fully immerse themselves into this serene oasis for the ultimate city getaway.
In a hidden spot on the Cape winelands, this retreat is disguised amongst the surrounding sandstone mountains. Although the international airport is a mere 45 minute drive away, and vibrant Cape Town only an hour away, you’ll feel worlds away from real life when you’re surrounded by the hotel’s expansive gardens, rivers and vineyards.
Step into your own luxury farm house cottage, expect to find thatched roofs and whitewashed walls. Curl up in your abode beside the fireplace when it gets nippy, and in the summer months spend your evenings dining al-fresco in your private outdoor spot admiring the stunning panorama.
Why we like it
Forever the wilderness lovers, we can’t get enough of the nature and simplicity here. From the abundant gardens, vineyards and fruit orchards just waiting to be explored, to the fresh, healthy seasonal produce served at farmhouse tearooms and restaurant, Babylonstoren’s ethos is one-hundred percent our vibe.
