Hermon, Western Cape
Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse

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 Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, it offers a serene sense of seclusion. Home to wheat and merino sheep farms, and adjacent to a 10,000-acre private nature reserve, it offers relaxing wine tastings and exhilarating game drives. Surrounded by a wide veranda, the original farmhouse has four bedrooms decorated with tasteful antiques. In addition, guests can stay in a separate suite or the private, three-bedroom Wild Olive House with a full kitchen and its own pool. 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, all paired with local wines.
