Additional Location Information

Stanford nestles in the quiet space between the Kleinrivier Mountains and the meandering Klein River. Lei water sloots and dusty roads frame the central market square. Languid cricket matches share this special space with the regular country market day.

Art galleries and antique shops invite the casual browser, and mouthwatering fare in cafes, pubs, restaurants and at the local cheese farm entice the senses. The mountain, fynbos, the river and the coastline attract a fascinating diversity of birdlife.

Hikers and mountain bikers can choose coastal or mountain routes, or merely amble along the village Wandelpad. Paddlers can escape to the solitude and silence of the river. Slow down your pace and let Stanford embrace you!
