Additional Location Information
A Taste of Village Life
If it's a sociable and active weekend you're after, or on the other end of the scale - looking for 'a license to chill' - Stanford is for you! An enterprising country village on 25 km from Hermanus, carves an interesting niche in the leisure market. Life here is slower than in the city, so it’s no surprise that many ex-urbanites now call this village with a river at its heart, home.
Choosing a favourite time to visit Stanford is like picking a treat from your grandma’s pantry—each season seems better than the next. Stanford caters for sport enthusiasts and eco-adventurers alike, with its diverse activities on offer: tackle a 4x4 trail, dust off the old golf clubs, ride a horse, go on a sunset cruise, learn to fly fish, spot the whales or dare to go shark cage diving. For those who wish to spend their holiday at a more leisurely pace, enjoy our fragrant wines, sit back in our country gardens with a good book or relax on a river cruise.
Award-winning restaurants and wine estates are plentiful. All hungry and thirsty travellers are welcome. We cater for everyone’s budget – from pub ’n grills to luxurious restaurants and romantic cafés with specialised cuisine. Come Say ‘I do’ in Stanford. One of the landmarks is the Anglican Church and the Dutch Reformed Church on the village green. Their idyllic settings make it a popular venue for country weddings. The village and its people elicit a warmth and ambience that is hard to find anywhere else. So get away from the mad rush of your life and pay us a visit.
Wedged between two evocative water worlds - the picturesque Kleinerivier, and the moody Atlantic, this quaint Victorian Cape village in the Overberg life is lived to the rhythmic ebb and flow of tides. Stanford is on the coastal plain separating the mountains and the sea, about 90 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. Health spas and healing, whale-watching and winemaking, hiking and horse-riding, birding and bicycles - all can be enjoyed in this scenic area.
Floating slowly down the river on a summer's afternoon, you'll realise why the languishing country bug is so catching, that many weekend visitors to this small village, return time and time again.
