BABYLONSTOREN FARM HOTEL
Dating back to 1692 as a farm supplying ships passing the Cape, Babylonstoren is an extraordinary place to stay to soak in the atmosphere of the winelands, among vineyards, fruit trees and traditional white buildings.
Accommodation is in cottages built along an oak-lined street, which lies beside vast and fruitful eco friendly gardens, vineyards, farm shop and winery. In keeping with its eco-friendly profile, the hotel offers one of the most revered organic restaurants in South Africa, as well as a casual farm style lunch restaurant in a greenhouse serving enormous “hot dogs” – baguettes containing gigantic boerewors sausages.
A big population of ducks, hens and other birds helps to keep the beautiful fruit gardens free of pests without using poisons. Some of the cottages have gleaming modern kitchens where you can try your hand cooking a meal from a complimentary basket of vegetables placed there for your use. If those are not enough you can feel free to pick some more.
Inside the cottages are bright and light, with white painted wooden ceilings, white designer furniture, white bed and white bathroom with baskets of natural herbs as amenities. Most have back gardens with rustic table and chairs under the oaks where you can sip your in-room Babylonstoren wine as hens cluck past in the gardens and squirrels enjoy the acorns.
6 suites with 1 bedroom. 7 cottages with lounge and kitchen of which 4 have 2 bedrooms.
Outdoor pool, hot spa area with salt room, sauna and vitality pool. 2 restaurants. Wine tasting. Garden tours. Healing garden.
