About La Fontaine
La Fontaine is a deluxe guest retreat, perfect for a rejuvenating break, golf vacation, romantic getaway, or whale-viewing holiday in Southern Africa. The guest house is steeped in history, situated in one of the oldest buildings in the whale haven of Hermanus. It is located on a property famous for its prime whale watching position, across from the original fresh water fountain around which the village of Hermanus was founded.
At La Fontaine you will find yourself immersed in comfortable luxury and surrounded by the uplifting sights and sounds of waves and whales in season. La Fontaine is not a hotel, it is a home away from home with a warm ambience that offers gracious living and all the comforts conducive to a serene, restorative getaway.
Our five en-suite bedrooms are all individually decorated and vary in size and rates. In addition we offer a spectacular breakfast menu which can be enjoyed on the patio as you take in the panoramic views across the bay.
