Book Stanford

Explore a wine farm, enjoy an educational guided tour at our big cat sanctuary, Panthera Africa or maybe a more active mountain bike trail or hike to ancient cave paintings followed by a leisurely picnic or river cruise? Whatever your taste, there’s a lot to explore in and around the village.

With the Klein Rivier running through it, mountain views, and just 30 minutes from the sea-side town of Hermanus, Stanford is ideally positioned for couples and families looking for a laid-back getaway in a quaint and historic village that remains true to its entrepreneurial roots – pop into one of the antique stores, restaurants, vineyards or coffee shops. For the adventurous – horse riding, boat cruises, hikes, bird watching and Great White Shark Cage diving are all within a 20km radius of the village. There is so much to choose from during the holiday season.  Whether you want to shop, see, sip or sleep, #VisitStanford.

Choosing to wed in a small hamlet like Stanford really does become a village affair.
