Barton Villas

Holiday Home Accommodation in Hermanus - Overberg, South Africa

Reviewed: April 2011

Barton Villas is set amongst the gentle slopes of the Barton Vineyards, offering majestic and panoramic views of the Kogel Valley. The Tuscan-styled villas offer the height of self-catering luxury, with careful attention to detail. The combination of luxury and venue make it an ideal location for the perfect getaway to unwind, with family, friends or colleagues.

The vineyard offers a range of activities, such as wine tasting, purchasing some of their home-grown (and made!) products and a dam for fishing. However, if you are planning a fishing trip, make sure to confirm that the dam has been stocked to avoid any disappointment, as prior warning is not given.

Barton Vineyards encompasses 500 acres of land, where nectarine and plum orchards, along with olive groves and lavender fields, are grown to produce wine, olive oil, honey and lavender products. On Saturday afternoon we indulged in some wine-tasting of Barton Villa's award-winning Chenin Blanc and Shiraz, followed by purchasing some of their delicious honey and home-made lavender products. The vineyards are resident to a range of birding wildlife, including guinea fowl and some beautiful peacocks. Don't be surprised to have some cheeky peacocks at your door, expecting some breakfast!

We stayed in Blue Crane for the weekend, which was a luxurious treat; from open-planned living areas which maximized the available views, to DSTV and Wi-Fi, as well as open-log fires (including the kitchen!), a swimming pool and a jacuzzi (which overlooks kilometers of vineyards). We spent a romantic evening in the Jacuzzi, which provided the perfect setting for a peaceful evening, looking out at the stars and with a glass of champagne in our hands. The open-log fire is perfect for cold or windy evenings. Blue Crane has three bedrooms (main en-suite) which are all decorated with every comfort considered. A tennis court and gazebo are also provided for the use of guests.

There are three remaining villas on the vineyards, each consisting of either three, double or twin bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The villas are kitted-out with open-plan kitchens, dishwashers, DSTV and log fires. The villas also have jacuzzis, swimming pools and Wi-Fi - everything you might need whilst on your holiday.
