Ensconced in the beauty of South Africa’s Winelands and located within easy reach of two of the regions most visited towns - Franschhoek and Stellenbosch – Babylonstoren is at once a luxury hotel and a fully working farm.
From its picturesque setting to its plush, incredibly spacious accommodation this stellar property has much to recommend it.
There’s plenty of choice when it comes to where to stay, including suites in the Farmhouse and Garden Cottages with up to two bedrooms. For couples in search of a romantic escape we recommend the Fynbos Cottages, which are set slightly away from the main site with incredible views. This area also has its own pool and honesty bar, so it feels a little like being in a hotel within a hotel.
Truly a fully working farm, you’ll find that much of the delicious food served here is created from homegrown ingredients. With additional ingredients from neighbouring properties, you simply can’t find fresher food and the proof is in the eating.
There’s plenty to do on site here, too, with wine tastings, garden tours, rowing on the dam and bread baking just some of the activities included in your stay. You can also make use of the farm’s complimentary bicycles and explore the 200 acres of land at leisure.
