Stanford is a small riverside village. It’s located only 16 km east of Hermanus and 22 km north-east of Gansbaai. With the Klein Rivier running through it, mountain views, and just 30 minutes from the sea-side town of Hermanus, Stanford is ideally positioned for couples and families looking for a laid-back getaway in a quaint and historic village that remains true to its entrepreneurial roots – pop into one of the antique stores, restaurants, vineyards or coffee shops. For the adventurous – horse riding, boat cruises, hikes, bird watching and Great White Shark Cage diving are all within a 20km radius of the village. There is so much to choose from during the holiday season, make sure you don’t miss our renowned Stanford Street Festival in December. Whether you want to shop, see, sip or sleep, visit Stanford.
