Stanford is ideally situated for a quiet weekend break. 20 Minutes from Hermanus and 1.5hours from Cape Town, Stanford exudes an air of olde world charm and tranquility.

The Klein River runs through the town attracting an abundance of bird life. Kayaks are available for hire if you fancy rowing down the river or you can book yourself on a sunset cruise on the African Queen.

Stroll through the town centre and browse through the antique shops. You can also go for a hike along the 'wandelpad' a path that takes you along the banks of the river. In winter, Stanford becomes the ideal place to curl up by the fire with a good book and a glass of delicious local wine. There are 5 wine farms close to the town and many restaurants to choose from. Visitors can also pack picnic baskets and enjoy a relaxed, al fresco meal at one of the many picnic spots available.
