With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by Africa and would happily talk about this diverse continent’s wildlife, cultures, and experiences all day, every day.

Babylonstoren Overview

Located in the Franschhoek wine valley is Babylonstoren. This is one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms and today, a visit or stay at Babylonstoren gives you the opportunity to see the hard work that goes into all elements of the farm – from the agricultural upkeep of the locally-grown vegetables to the careful production of the grape and wine-making. The gardens throughout Babylonstoren are simply stunning. Whether you wander through the herb gardens, the tropical greenhouse, or the lavender fields, you’ll find great botanic diversity and so many beautiful aromas. Situated close to the town of Franschhoek and a stop on the Franschhoek wine tram, Babylonstoren is a popular place to visit for a day trip. With a small entrance fee, you can spend the day at Babylonstoren, wandering through the gardens and eating at one of its many restaurants, offering a farm-to-fork platter. If you are looking for somewhere special to stay for a couple of days in the winelands, we cannot recommend the farm hotel at Babylonstoren enough. The room categories at Babylonstoren include garden cottages (both one-bedroom and two-bedroom cottages), replicating a traditional and authentic farm-stay experience. There are also 9 one-bedroom farmhouse suites, and 6 fynbos cottages (4 two-bedroom and 2 one-bedroom cottages). Finally for families, there is both the Manor House and the Fynbos family house which can both accommodate up to 10 guests. There is so much to do at Babylonstoren, and with a couple of days here, you’ll be able to enjoy the slower pace of life that a farm-stay should be enjoyed.
