A charming town in the Western Cape Province, Stanford lies between nature reserves, and with a mountain range as a backdrop, in a magnificent rural setting. The place could be described as a smartly-restored artist’s retreat, the entire village having been declared a heritage site, however, the locals prefer to regard their home as a cultural village. With a bubbling river running through the town, Stanford leaves visitors destressed and with a feeling of inner peace.
Inland of Walker Bay and situated between the whale watching town of Hermanus and the shark cage diving capital, Gansbaai, Stanford is well-positioned to enjoy the daily excitement nearby and then return to restful accommodation and country hospitality. Stanford is also close to the historic missionary town of Elim.
The town’s slogan ‘for a taste of village life’ accurately describes a visit to Stanford.
