Country Bumpkin / Hg2 MUST-STAY

Here at Hg2, we don’t generally go for the country bumpkin experience. We’re unrelenting city-lovers, but that doesn’t mean we won’t happily ferret out rural bliss. Hg2 Cape Town author Keith Bain travels less than an hour from the centre of the city to discover a rare paradise called Babylonstoren. It’s in a valley between some astonishing craggy peaks, and a stone’s throw from such a bewildering supply of wine estates that you’ll need weeks to try each of them with any kind of authority. Then again, Babylonstoren has its own young winery, and the incredible fruit and vegetable garden here is apparently on track to become one of the finest on the planet. And, besides being a perfectly idealised introduction to South Africa’s outdoors, it turns out that Babylonstoren is a bright shining light for style enthusiasts; accommodations are a study in exuberant design, with fashionable furniture, state-of-the-art kitchens, and blissful bathrooms—all laid out in a manner that evokes a perfect home-from-home mood. By all accounts, this Cape Town getaway is one of a kind.
