Accommodation in Hemel-en-Aarde, Hermanus
When it comes to finding that perfect holiday spot, we aim to find some peace and quiet that makes us forget about our busy lives. A little piece of heaven so to speak. Well, the Overberg region in the Western Cape holds its very own little piece of “heaven on earth” in the form of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in Hermanus.
Starting from just behind the suburb of Sandbaai, the area consists of the Hemel-en-Aarde Village and stretches all the way along the R320 past a colourful palate of award-winning wine estates. Surrounded by sweeping landscapes of mottled mountains, mirror-like dams and striking vineyards all accompanied by the meandering Onrus River, the Valley is truly something dreams are made of.
Choose to stay in one of the luxury accommodations in the Hemel-en-Aarde Estate which gives you quick access to the town of Hermanus and all the attractions it holds.

The lodgings here offer fully equipped self-catering accommodation with amenities like private courtyards and gardens, swimming pools, braai (barbeque) facilities and more.
For a full immersion in nature and to savour its delicious fruits, there are also accommodation options in the Valley itself.

From here you can explore the various activities like horse riding, hiking, mountain biking and of course, wine tasting and dining at the prestigious wine estates of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Many of these tasting venues make for great outings as many of them hold their own restaurants where meals are served on open verandas with views over the farm.
