Stanford village is a gentle rural place with space for children to ride their bikes, or float paper boats in the lei-water sloots. Embrace the country life and join the locals walking to the shops and restaurants, along the river and the wandelpad. Take a hike through the vineyards, or cycle along the country lanes. Relax on the hammock with a good book, or watch the sun go down over the mountains.
Transfers can be arranged from Cape Town, but it is preferable to have the flexibility of your own car to explore the surrounding area, country restaurants and wine estates. Stanford is an hour and 45 minutes away from the international airport in Cape Town. Secure parking is provided on the property.
