Babylonstoren, Franschhoek Wine Valley

The guest experience at Babylonstoren in South Africa is singular and sustaining. This is a place where one feels refreshed, whether waking up between crisp linen sheets or picking their own healthy fruit and veggies from the orchards and gardens. 

There’s a sense of grounding oneself here on one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms in existence, set at the foot of Simonsberg in the Franschhoek wine valley. Guests are made to feel as if this is their own estate, with full garden access at all times, cellar tours and tastings, bread making with the bakers, morning harvests with the gardeners, guided fishing trips, and access to the garden spa. Dining is a highlight, where farm-to-fork cuisine might mean homemade muesli, thick farm-style yogurts, fresh salads and cheeses, and even a five-course carnivore evening, celebrating the finest meat in Africa. Guests may stay in one of several idyllic settings, including the refined and moody Farmhouse (with a gorgeous honeymoon loft suite), a white-washed garden cottage with a hearty fireplace, a Cape Dutch-style Fynbos Cottage next to the vineyards and orchards, or an exclusive-use Family House, perfect for groups who wish for a peaceful retreat.
