Art and Design in Nature

HaesFarm is an upmarket, eco-friendly and much-published guest farm that stands majestically overlooking the Stanford valley. This serene hideaway is a hidden gem that takes you off the beaten track. Redesigned from the ground up, this immaculately furnished guest farm is fully self-sustaining and has spectacular views that stretch from the stunning Stanford valley all the way across to the Atlantic ocean and the Hermanus coastline. As you walk through the property, artworks and sculptures created by renowned artists from around the globe can be seen adorning the walls of the luxury accommodation destination. HaesFarm has two private guest rooms each with its own patio. In addition, HaesFarm is available for intimate daytime functions as well as private art tours, by arrangement. HaesFarm can accommodate four guests and is not suitable for children under the age of 18 years of age.
