Farm 215 might sound a little austere but don't be put off. More like a private nature reserve, this is 'eco-friendly' done properly, combining luxury and a passion for the environment, but remaining laidback and friendly. The two main co-owners, partners Maarten and Henki, epitomise the spirit of the place: Maarten the driving force behind all the envionmental projects and... More

My boyfriend and I booked a horseriding trip in the Overberg with the African Horse Company which has links with Farm 215. We were expecting to stay in some sort of ranch accommodation, but we were bowled over when we saw we were actually staying here - in fact I felt a bit fraudulent seeing as we thought the trip...

One of the best things about Farm 215 is the fact that it's miles away from anywhere, you feel like a little peace of paradise has been set aside just for you. The hosts were friendly and attentive and had lots of recommendations for local activities. The eco-friendly Fynbos Suites and solar-heated pool take your breath away and compared to... More

I stayed at Farm 215 for 3 nights for my birthday in June 2007, and have never felt so spoilt or special in all my life. It is the kind of place you dream of visiting year after year, as the peacefulness and tranquility is stuff that you only read about in fairytales, or see and "experience" in the movies.... More

This is the place to go if you are looking to relax and unwind with an air of sophistication. We stayed in the very private Fynbos Suites for two nights and the photos on the website do not do them justice and i thought the photos were beautiful!! The suites are basically made up of three interleading open plan rooms.... More

Farm 215 is in the middle of nowhere, which is great. A long gravel road, then a rutted track to the main house, a 4 by 4 would be ideal, but a car can manage – just about. The 3 Fynbos suites are superbly designed, spotlessly clean, and extremely well fitted out, complete with marble bathroom, and double sided fireplace.... More
