Babylonstoren is a Cape Dutch farm with vineyards and orchards surrounded by the dramatic mountains of the Drakenstein Valley. It is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms in the Western Cape. It has a fruit and vegetable garden of beauty and diversity, unique accommodation, fine food and a sense of wellbeing.

Guests staying at an exclusive farm hotel enjoy access to the entire farm, plus facilities like a spa and gym. The aim is to have guests feel more comfortable, more alive among warm smiles and the simple daily rhythm of the farm.

The perfect place for a stroll

You can stroll out onto the farm of 200 hectares and see fruit being picked in the orchards or vines being pruned – depending on the season, or enjoy a walk in the remarkable fruit and vegetable garden which lies behind the main house and borders the guest suites.

The garden is formal in structure and every one of the varieties of plants in the garden is edible and grown as biologically as possible. The garden is divided into 15 different clusters; veggie areas, berries, bees, indigenous plants, ducks and chickens. We saw olive trees, sweet potatoes, rosemary, thyme, lemons, kumquat trellises, persimmons, oranges, grapefruit, plums, lavender, peaches, pomegranates, chamomile, wild gardenia, and even delicious tasting day lilies. There is even a prickly pear maze.
