Location description from owner

The Western Cape region

Hermanus has a dry Mediterranean climate. The town has the best land based whale watching in the world. The best months for seeing whales are September till November. The best summer months are November till April, although the Indian Summer in May, is favoured by many. Hermanus is a 150 year old fishing village, which became a premier holiday destination on the South African coast 100 years ago and still remains one of the most popular sea-side spots.

Hermanus

La Gratitude is about 90 minutes drive from Cape Town, in an easterly direction along the garden route. It is 15 minutes drive from Hermanus village, perched above the famous beaches in the area. Hermanus, has many good restaurants, a ethnic craft market and a good range of shops. The southern most tip of Africa is a few hours drive further along the coast. Fine wines can be tasted at a number of Cape wineries within 30 minutes drive. A huge range of out-door activities are all within easy range. Fernkloof nature reserve with its rich vynbos (indigenous flora) provides excellent hikes into the mountain behind the house. There is a lagoon, on which a range of water sports are to be had, including windsurfing, water skiing and sailing. The cliff path starts meters in front of the house. The best land based whale watching in the world can be had from the cliff path or from the house itself. Hermanus has a popular 18 hole golf course and the Arabella golf estate is 30 mins drive away.

“Simply stunning ..........”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2016

Our stay at La Gratitude was simply stunning in everyway. The location was amazing the ocean and whales on one side and the breathtaking scenery of the mountains on the other. A few minutes walk along the coastal path to the bakery for wonderful crossiants for breakfast. If you don't want to cook take a stroll down to Dutchies for lunch or dinner it's really lovely. La Gratitude has everything such a beautiful home with everything you could wish for to have an amazing holiday even wonderful Iris the housekeeper to look after you. We are in the process of planning to go back in January 2017 can't wait! Thank you La Gratitude x

Dear Sarah, Thank you for your kind review. We love La GRatitude to be used and enjoyed. Best wishes, Simon

A very comfortable holiday home with plenty of space. Could not be closer to the beach with the most stunning views and sunsets. Would happily recommend to anyone wanting to visit Hermanus.
