Babylonstoren Farm Hotel
Lying within the vineyards and orchards of the Drakenstein Valley, between Franschhoek and Paarl, Babylonstoren is one of the best preserved werfs (farm yards) in the Cape Dutch tradition, with the manor house dating back to 1777.
Now a boutique hotel it hosts elegant cottages and suites, of varying sizes, in converted Cape Dutch farm buildings.
Babylonstoren has two restaurants serving produce from its famous organic gardens, as well as a wine Tasting Room which serves delicious platters. Spend your time at Babylonstoren enjoying the mountains all around, picking your own healthy fruit and veg, playing pétanque, swimming in the farm dam, enjoying an hour in the spa, eating at one of the restaurants or awaiting sunsets with a glass of wine in hand.
- The idyllic country life, blended with luxury
- Historic Cape Dutch gables and whitewashed walls with contemporary elements
- A delightful dam-style swimming pool, bicycles and canoes to explore the farm
- A farm-to-fork philosophy in the two excellent and atmospheric restaurants
