A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Stanford, South Africa


General Information

Stanford is a small town located in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, South Africa and is a popular retreat for Capetonians as an escape from their busy city life.

Only half an hour drive from the seaside town of Hermanus, Stanford has beautiful mountain views, great restaurants, interesting shops and vineyards.  Preserved Victorian cottages line the streets, and with the Kleinrivier running through it Stanford is all about relaxing in life.  Boastful of having the best food and wine in the Cape, Stanford is popular all year-round.

The centre of town consists of the original market square, a village green and plenty of places to eat, drink and shop.  Stanford seems to embody old-world style with modern times in the successful merging of tastes and delights.  The village has a strong entrepreneurial spirit often found in small villages, as talented artists and crafters have made Stanford their home.

Stanford is rich in history and visitors can learn more about it on interesting walks through the town following the history tours.  More information is available at the tourism office.  Saturday mornings bring with it a gastronomy of taste and smell at the Saturday morning market and the monthly Friday sunset market, hugely popular with locals and visitors alike.
