Luxury stay at Babylonstoren

Luxury stay at Babylonstoren

Set in the winelands, between Franschhoek and Paarl, you’ll find a lovely Cape Dutch estate. Babylonstoren has been lovingly restored into the most gorgeous farm-style hotel by previous SA Elle Decoration editor and style guru, Karen Roos. Karen restored the original farmhouse and has added a number of guest suites. Karen has kept a fantastic balance between old and new, marrying the two effortlessly. You’ll find luxurious designer pieces mixed in with simple classics.I was lucky enough to stay overnight in one of the incredible self catering cottages that overlook the beautiful 8 acre fruit and vegetable garden. The garden itself is a wonder and needs to be seen, simply to understand the grand scale and design of it. Guests are encouraged to explore the garden and even pick their own fresh fruit and veg!

Impeccable design, attention to detail and five star service are what you can expect and then of course a delicious breakfast at Babel, the farm’s fabulous restaurant… but more about that tomorrow! All together, a stay here is just heavenly, country living at it’s very best!

    I can't stop going back to the top right image of the garden with the rill and just gazing at its incredible beauty. What an amazing place. I am sitting here working on cad plans for a project, and you have given me just the touch of inspiration that I needed! Thank you for the welcome little distraction!

    Wow what a beautiful place. Just wish I knew about it when I was in South Africa last month for my honeymoon. It's definitely going on the list for next time.
