Babylonstoren Farm Hotel

Discover 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.

INSIDER TIP

"An undoubted highlight of any stay is a walk through the beautifully landscaped 8-hectare organic gardens. Be prepared to possibly bump into Babylonstoren's famous ducks whose job it is to keep the vines and gardens pest-free."
