A 200-hectare farm, perfectly positioned in the Drakenstein Valley

ating back to 1692, in the heart of the Cape Winelands, almost halfway between Franschhoek and Paarl. Here, owner Karen Roos has masterfully created the ultimate farm haven, where the luxury is in the integrity and authenticity of the setting.

Excellent wine aside, Babylonstoren is also home to a stylish hotel, a 5-hectare garden that supplies three restaurants and a juicery, a serene spa, modern wine-tasting centre, boathouse with row boat, endless dirt roads (which hotel guests can explore on available mountain bikes) and a pervasive sense of tranquility that follows you everywhere.

The 5-hectare garden, modelled on the famous Company’s Garden in Cape Town, is probably the farm’s main attraction, providing the central backdrop to everything that happens on the farm.

Up to ten guests are accommodated in five individual bedrooms, each comprising a fireplace and spacious en-suite with marbled tile floors and luxurious freestanding baths to soak away your worries. Leading off the spacious lounge is a contemporary glass cube, seamlessly encompassing a fully equipped kitchen. The heart of the house is the private central courtyard, offering a gathering space for friends and family to share. A crystal pool in the centre of the courtyard is fed by a shallow channel, emulating the streams on the rest of the property and providing the tranquil sound of gently trickling water.
