A friendly quaint small town - Stanford welcomes you in every sense. The people are friendly and town is a treat to spend time in. Most places are within walking distance.

A quint little town with a lot to offer - If you need peace and quietness, this is for you. It has a charm you can get used to and do not want to leave. Maybe come back to buy yourself a retirement home.

A piece of olde worlde - This is a lovely town with a great history. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area. If you just want to have a peaceful time this is also a great place to do it. Goose cottage is a lovely calm cottage in a peaceful garden - great for the soul.

Stanford a place to visit - Stanford is like a secret. The more you go there the more you discover. Peaceful and friendly, fresh food markets, fabulous restaurants. Marianna's (make sure you book) madras kitchen and a few others. Birds and the river are a real treat. Swim, canoe or go on the African queen. It also seems to be a sought after wedding destination.

Beautiful and tranquil - I didn't go into the town very often. But its beautiful, the people are friendly and helpful. The properties seemed well looked after, the town is clean, its close enough to Hermanus, and it may very well just be the place to retire.
