Blue Gum Country Estate is situated on the Klein Rivier near Stanford, offers a unique Overberg experience for those in search of rustic sophistication in a magnificent country setting.

The 12 rooms at Blue Gum are all different, as you would expect in a private home. Some are more spacious, others more family-friendly, but they all have a warm domestic feeling with an emphasis on quality and comfort. We make no apologies about food being a main draw card, with two restaurants catering for families and informal get-togethers as well as a more formal and romantic alternative catering to adults only.

The Estate is situated amongst an olive grove, vineyards, rolling lawns and extensive gardens with swimming pool, tennis court, boule court, mountain bikes, extensive library and board games. You will find something to suit every interest and persuasion, both on or off the estate whether you are a foodie, walking enthusiast, history buff, adrenalin junkie.

A Little Farmhouse is situated in a leafy, wind-free glade which takes you back in time. The cottage is tranquil and comfortable with only the birds and sheep in the distance, while having easy access to shops and restaurants.

The old Dover stove makes for fun cooking and the forest bath and shower is a romantic way of stargazing with a glass of bubbly. This is comfortable farm living with only the tame animals for company. You can spend your days lazing on the large patio with a book or choose to partake in a number of activities in and around Stanford. Horse riding, paddling on the river, birdwatching, hiking, eating at the country restaurants are a few examples.

The unique little village of Stanford, overlooked by the moody slopes of the Klein River Mountains, lies just inland of False Bay, forming the tip of a triangle with the coastal towns of Hermanus and De Kelders. Peaceful and largely unaffected by change, Stanford is an eclectic mix of shops, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops, and the list of activities for a largely rural village exceeds one’s expectations.

When in Stanford, go to the Birkenhead Brewery, a boutique brewery open for beer tasting and lunches and the Stanford Walking Trail, which wends its way along the banks of the Klein River through the town and offers visitors some wonderful glimpses of the many birds in the area, including the endangered Blue Crane.

Sleeps 12 in 6 rooms

Farm 215 is a private and secluded country house in the middle of a private nature reserve of 800 hectares, boasting the diverse and special nature of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Farm 215 is the winner of the Cape Fox award 2007 for sustainable and responsible management of the land.

Luxury accommodation is offered in freestanding Fynbos Suites spaced out along a meandering path and in spacious rooms on the first floor of the old homestead.

Generous meals made from local ingredients and with an eye for detail, are served in a new outbuilding which is purely powered by solar energy. A solar heated lap pool of 25 meters is connected with a long wooden boardwalk to the homestead.

The access gate to Farm 215 is on the gravel road from Gansbaai to Elim and Cape Agulhas, 200 km from Cape Town. Farm 215 enjoys splendid isolation, an overpowering sense of space and sweeping views over the Agulhas Plains towards the shoreline.

We offer all-inclusive horse trail rides, from two to five days, through pristine natural lands of the Overberg and along miles of empty beaches. Venture the beach and fynbos hiking trails, from a few hours to a full day, on the land of Farm 215 with an experienced guide or by yourself with a detailed map.

It is a 15-minute drive from Farm 215 to both endless unspoilt beaches and the best spots to watch whales. Kleinbaai, the place to embark for whale watching or shark cage diving, is 15 km away.

All elements of infrastructure and operations of Farm 215 are based upon nature-sustainable practices. Luxury off the beaten track.

Kindly note that we only accept reservations for a minimum stay of two nights.

The southernmost tip of the mighty African continent is only two hours’ drive from Cape Town and is the place where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet. The ruggedness of the area is mirrored in the name “Agulhas”, meaning “place of needles”. In keeping with this, the Agulhas Country Lodge is built from local limestone and blends beautifully into a hill overlooking the spectacular oceans. The lodge has several relaxation areas – a cigar lounge, quaint pub with an air force maritime theme, a TV room with paintings of shipwrecks, a lounge area and glass clad balcony with spectacular sea views for whale watching. The friendly staff who are very service orientated, take great pride in preparing gourmet country style dinners which are served in the romantic candlelit restaurant.

The menu which varies daily and is complimented with a selection of South African wines. The wine list features the southernmost and newest wine region in the country, right on our doorstep – in the Elim, Bredasdorp, Napier region of the Overberg. Fresh fish and seafood bought daily at the nearby harbour in Struisbaai are a specialty and the emphasis of the food is to serve delicious, honest and local fair, prepared with the freshest ingredients. The restaurant also serves traditional South African cuisine with a modern twist and local organic venison and pork feature regularly. Tables are elegant, decked out in white linen, Carol Boyes cutlery and cut glass crystal but the atmosphere is relaxed, with fires blazing in winter to add to the romantic atmosphere.

All eight rooms have sea views from the balcony, two have direct sea views and the honeymoon rooms with their Jacuzzi baths and double open showers are very popular. These also offer views of the varied fynbos and excellent bird life on the property. Beautiful embroidered percale linen, original art and antique Cape cottage furniture enhance the homely atmosphere. Four rooms have three-quarter twin beds two of these are family rooms with three beds each and the other four have queen size double beds.

The honeymoon rooms have an entertainment centre and mini bar. All the upstairs rooms have air conditioners and all rooms have panel heaters. There is a new beauty salon with a resident qualified beautician to offer massages, manicure- and pedicures, waxing and all the normal therapeutic treatments. Swimming at the longest uninterrupted white beach in southern Africa at nearby Struisbaai is a popular activity in summer and is safe. Agulhas offers two tidal pools within walking distance and the second oldest light house is a brisk walk away. Also don’t miss the eco coastal safari through the Agulhas National Park or a sea excursion for deep sea fishing or simply for pleasure.
