Vermont is close to the main part of town (10-15min drive) but out of the hustle and bustle so perfect for a quieter stay. Also closer to Hemel en Aarde valley where the wine farms are.
Situated at the entrance to the resort town of Hermanus, pretty Vermont village has a small stretch of beach and borders the Hoek-van-die-berg Nature Reserve. Much of Vermont is undeveloped, however, Hermanus and surrounding areas are booming and the open spaces are unlikely to remain untouched for too long. While the village does not have a swimming beach, there are various locations along the suburb’s coastline to sit on the rocks and watch the whales that attract so many to this region of the Western Cape in South Africa.
Vermont was laid out as a small settlement with 20% retention of natural terrain to provide for green belts and conservation areas. The village has a large salt pan that attracts birdlife, specifically flamingos, and is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The houses here are fairly new and well maintained and several security complexes and homes for the aged have recently been constructed.

For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
