I already posted about Babylonstoren on my other blog The Travel Files but I found some gorgeous new photos of this fabulous place on Yatzer that I would like to share with you.

Babylonstoren is a Cape Dutch farm (one of the oldest!) in the Cape Winelands, South Africa, with vineyards and orchards surrounded by the dramatic mountains of the Drakenstein Valley. It has an exceptionally well–preserved werf dating from 1690.

The guest suites echo Cape Dutch farm buildings. The style developed in the Cape Colony of the 17th and 18th century: outer walls are whitewashed and decorated with ornate gables and thatched roofs

A fruit and vegetable garden of botanical diversity supplies a remarkable restaurant.

Guests staying here enjoy access to the entire farm, plus facilities like a spa and gym. The aim is to have guests feel more comfortable, more alive among warm smiles and the simple daily rhythm of the farm. Sounds like the perfect place to relax and escape busy every day life!

  1. This is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing! I happen to be on the hunt for examples of internal sliding doors for a client and love the ones in the first photo. A fabulous post – thank you!

  2. Hi Danielle,
    o.a. vanwege je post hierover (op travel-files) ben ik hier 2 weken geleden gaan lunchen. Bleek dat Babylonstoren praktisch naast de winery van mijn oom (Anura) ligt! Erg mooi estate, we hadden lunch in de tea-room. Allemaal biologisch en uit eigen tuin, ook de sapjes met groente en fruit (keuze uit rood, groen of geel). Kamers en cottages prachtig, maar (helemaal voor Afrikaanse standaarden!) zeer prijzig! Desalniettemin een aanrader!! Thnx! X Violette
