A magical sanctuary
Hearth & Soul is perfectly situated in a secluded valley between the hamlets of Stanford and Napier in the Sandy’s Glen area, undoubtedly one of the Overberg’s best-kept secrets.
We are less than two hours from Cape Town and only 50 kilometres from Hermanus.
Hearth and Soul accommodation comprises 10 en-suite bedrooms with lovely patios and balcony views of the mountains. Each room has been individually decorated - simply and comfortably, using the buildings and natural surroundings as inspiration.
Set on 220 hectares of spectacular mountainside, alive with diverse fynbos, poplar and eucalyptus forests, four small dams and a pristine river running through the property, Hearth and Soul is the ideal venue for team-building getaways, courses, workshops and small conferences. The setting also lends itself to magical weddings and unforgettable private functions with an intimate and natural flavour.
The original farm buildings have been extensively and lovingly upgraded, in a conscious and eco-friendly manner. Our own poplar and blue-gum trees were used for beams and internal woodwork, adding to the unique charm of our venue.
Our function room is a wonderful space for workshops, and comfortably seats 120 -150.
We are lucky to have our drinking water supplied directly via gravity-feed from a nearby mountain spring, and we pump from the perennial river to irrigate the farm lands.
“Whether with overnight guests or groups on longer workshops, we thoroughly enjoy interacting and sharing the vision we hold here of eco-friendly, sustainable living.”
