Set on the doorstep of Simonsberg in Franschhoek wine valley, Babylonstoren is a boutique farm excelling in local produce. With some of its buildings dating back as far as the 1750s, Babylonstoren is one of the best-preserved examples of a Cape Dutch farm. The authentic historical exterior highlights the romance of rural Dutch Cape. Cosy cottages are elevated to spacious and light-filled spaces. Refreshingly simple elegance of thick, white-washed walls are complemented by rich oak features of hearty fireplaces. Verdant gardens rich in biodiversity balance the clean-line and contemporary cottage interiors.

Outside, the garden was inspired by The Company’s Garden in Cape Town (South Africa’s oldest). Boasting eight acres of cultivated gardens, every single one of the 300 plants is edible or can be used for medicinal purposes. But it’s the kitchen garden that is at the heart of Babylonstoren, with the abundance of produce celebrated at every turn.
