La Fontaine is a deluxe guest retreat perfect for a rejuvenating break, golf vacation, romantic getaway or whale viewing holiday in southern Africa.
Health and wellness, paradise on earth, spiritual energy, rejuvenation, strength and even life itself have been symbolised by the Fountain for thousands of years.
Right at the bottom of Africa, perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, you will find a guest house that is very aptly named. La Fontaine embodies the symbolism of the fountain. It is the perfect place to relax, and rejuvenate body, mind and soul.
The guest house is steeped in history, situated in one of the oldest buildings in the whale haven of Hermanus. It is located on a property famous for its prime whale watching position, across the way from the original fresh water fountain around which the village of Hermanus was founded. At La Fontaine you will find yourself immersed in comfortable luxury and surrounded by the uplifting sights and sounds of waves and whales in season.
La Fontaine is not a hotel; it is a home away from home with a warm ambience that offers gracious living and all the comforts conducive to a serene, restorative getaway.
Our five en-suite bedrooms are all individually decorated and vary in size and rates. We offer a spectacular breakfast menu, which can be enjoyed on the patio as you take in the panoramic views across the bay.
