A little info on Hermanus

La Fontaine Luxury Guest House | Hermanus

Hermanus is situated between the ocean and mountains on the Cape South coast of South Africa. A 90-minute drive from Cape Town through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country will bring you to this idyllic destination for a holiday in southern Africa.

The aura of rejuvenation and relaxation that the town exudes is in fact the reason for its existence. Years ago a shepherd found himself at a fresh water spring on the cliffs at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by perfect summer grazing. He sent word to other ‘farmers’ to bring their livestock, their wives and children to enjoy the summer months in this perfect spot. The man was Hermanus Pieters.
