Stanford, an unspoilt village in the Cape Overberg, features an assortment of Cape Victorian and Edwardian architecture, quaint country lanes and an overall atmosphere of natural calm. Pristine yet laid-back, this heritage enclave is the perfect balm for families needing to escape the city crush. At its heart is River’s Edge, a delightful double-storey home thoughtfully equipped with every modern convenience while still retaining its old-world charm. Lush lawns lead down to the pristine Klein River where you can swim, boat or kayak – or simply laze on the banks admiring the natural splendour. Take a slow, scenic cycle through the village, and make a point of visiting the Saturday morning market for scrumptious homemade goodies. Stanford is fast becoming a culinary hotspot, boasting award-winning bistros, hotel pubs, vineyards, a cheese maker and micro-brewery. Sleeps 8.
