A retreat for the non-hasty, detached from the daily routines of life.
Eight hundred hectares of undisturbed nature. The views range from Dangerpoint Peninsula and the shoreline to endless rows of Overberg-mountains.
It is a 15 km drive over the winding gravel-road leading from Gansbaai to Cape Agulhas. “It takes trouble to find heaven” was once written in a newspaper-article describing farm 215.
The villa can be seen from far: lonely and kind of imposing on top of its hill. Farm 215 is a secluded and private place. The silence can be heard and the freshness of the air can be smelled.
Situated in the middle of unspoilt indigenous flora (and neighbours far away), one would imagine not only to be detached from the daily routine of life but also from the comforts that can make life so pleasant.
Yet, on farm 215, there is everything a demanding guest could ask for: excellent local food with an eye to detail, big rooms with big beds with crisp cotton bedding, a shiatsu massage now and then, good Cape wines and a surprising book- and cd-collection.
The eight hundred hectares of the fynbos-reserve roll up to the highest peak in the area and down into deep and steep gorges. Take one step and you pass more plant-species and see more flowers than driving a mile anywhere in Europe. Maps show the hiking trails on farm 215 of more than 30 km and the best viewpoints. Botanical guides can escort you if you so wish and will introduce the wonders of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
Farm 215 is one of the “stations” for the African Horse Company. The Overberg is excellent horse-country. Local horses, strong yet light-footed, are the ideal companion for an outride of a few hours or a more-day trail from beach to mountain through the unspoilt Overberg leading to isolated spots.
Farm 215 is clearly off the beaten track and its houses are in an isolated position. Nature rules supreme. Where all attention is given to the comfort and quality of the accommodation and its amenities, farm 215 is not a resort, but a place where people can retire in rural and natural surroundings. We claim to cater for a niche: people that want to enjoy space, undisturbed views, tranquillity and the special nature of the “Cape Floral Kingdom”.
