Babylonstoren is a working farm set in the Drakenstein Valley between Franschhoek and Paarl, with the original Dutch Manor House dating back to 1777 and later buildings having the same historical feel. This boutique hotel is unrivalled, with award-winning wines, a sensational spa and an eight-acre kitchen garden that provides produce for Babylonstoren’s spectacular restaurants.
The interior of the Dutch Manor House has been beautifully restored to its former glory, but with a definite contemporary touch. All other buildings have been lovingly created with authentic architecture and modern design.
