About La Gratitude Villa

This historical holiday home offers superb, understated luxury accommodation in the coastal town of Hermanus.

La Gratitude has been the Pickstone family’s Hermanus holiday home for 95 years. Designed in 1916 and built on a property chosen for its magnificent views of Walker Bay, La Gratitude is filled with a lifetime of memorable summer holidays.

The Villa consists of five double rooms, four bathrooms, two sitting rooms and a fully equipped kitchen with courtyard.

The thoroughly modern kitchen is specifically designed to assist the most experienced cooks and is stocked with a new hob, oven, dishwasher, washing machine and two fridges.

The living room is the comfortable and restful hub of the house with a large central fireplace and a tastefully discrete, yet thoroughly modern entertainment system.

Combining the most modern luxurious facilities with a panoramic view of Walker Bay; La Gratitude’s fenced outside entertainment area includes a multi-jet, multi-functional Jacuzzi, a child friendly pool, a 12-seater garden dining area and a built-in braai.

Ideal for every type of relaxed social gathering that includes whale watching.

In splendid seclusion, La Gratitude is built on 3000 square meters of gently sloping grass rimmed by indigenous vegetation. It is a few steps from secret coves, 12km of pristine beach, the Hermanus cliff paths and a short drive from the village.
