Just over an hour's drive from Cape Town, this Victorian-era farmstead sits in the up-and-coming Swartland wine region. Beyond the more famous vineyards of Wellington, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, it offers a serene sense of seclusion. The property boasts wheat and merino sheep farms, as well as a 10,000-acre private nature reserve, which means you can frame your days spent wine tasting with morning and evening game drives. Surrounded by a wide verandah, the original farmhouse offers four bedrooms and one suite, all filled with antiques. In addition, guests can stay in the private, three-bedroom Wild Olive House with its own pool. A visit to Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse is all about savoring life's small pleasures, from canoeing and cycling the countryside to dining in the conservatory on French-inspired meals, paired with thoughtfully selected local wines.
