Pronounced as Fè-litch-ita, this Italian word means happiness, satisfaction and bliss. The name says it all of this beautiful piece of heaven on earth.
This 100-hectare property boasts untouched fynbos, wildlife and seclusion from the hustle & bustle of everyday life.
The Villa is a contemporary, three bedroom self-catering house. Fully equipped and can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.
Perfect for families, friends or a romantic getaway for two.
It consists of a spacious living area with subtle décor along with an ambient fireplace that gives an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Perfect for setting the mood in any season or occasion.
It has a fully equipped kitchen which instils a sense of being home away from home and also provides all the necessities if you feel the urge to whip up an intimate meal.
Our Villa’s rooms are set out to offer maximum space and are decorated with simplicity. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and a lovely en-suite bath and shower duo. The second bedroom also has a queen size bed, while the third bedroom is set out with four single beds which can easily be converted into a double if required. Each room has sufficient cupboard space. There is a second bathroom which is fitted with a shower.
The Patio does not disappoint! Complete with an under roof built-in braai, its breathtaking panoramic views of the landscape and it’s unforgettable sunrises as well as sunsets, it is the perfect setting for sundowners in the evening and an aromatic coffee in the morning. There is also a "kraal braai" which is a fantastic place to relax with family and friends under the magical starry nights.
We do know that four-legged friends are as much a part of the family and therefore they are welcome to join.
For the adventurous, you can explore the walking trails in the Milkwood forest or have a picnic at the dam. If you feel like just relaxing, absorb the stunning scenery, lounge in the warm South African sun as the only sounds to be heard are those of birds, the distant crashing waves and the late afternoon roars from the lions at the Big Cat Sanctuary, neighbouring Felicita.
You will get the feeling that you are a hundred miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, yet only a 15-minute drive from the historic village of Stanford. With biking and walking trails, wine farms, a cheese factory, regular farmer’s markets, breweries, gin distilleries, fine restaurants and beaches that stretch for kilometres. Felicita is also a mere 30 minute drive to Hermanus, the whale watching capital of South Africa which offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, entertainment and activities.
We pride ourselves for being free of alien flora species which is an ongoing problem in the Overberg region. Felicita has a low carbon footprint and is a self-sustaining, eco-friendly operation, which is off the national electricity grid, therefore un-phased by load shedding as all the facilities at Felicita are one hundred percent powered by solar and gas. The water supply is sourced directly from a natural spring which cascades into a stream that flows through the farmland and is carefully processed with a chemical-free filtration system, therefore, is pure as well as safe to drink.
