Spanish Farm Guest Lodge
Spanish Farm is a special piece of paradise, offering a wonderful peaceful ambiance and typical warm South African hospitality. For many of our guests Spanish Farm in Somerset West is a home away from home and they return year after year.
Enjoy a uniquely South African holiday in a beautiful environment just 40 minutes from Cape Town, Western Cape. With breathtaking views of the mountains and the sea, Spanish Farm is safe, peaceful and tranquil.
Nestled on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, it looks across to the Hottentots Holland mountain range, the azure waters of False Bay and the town of Somerset West below.
