Perivoli Lagoon House has opened just outside of Stanford, two hours outside of Cape Town on the Whale Coast. The exclusive-use villa can sleep up to eight people and is owned by the Perivoli Trust, where all profits are channeled to land conservation and restoration, as well as the Perivoli Schools Trust.
The ultra-contemporary villa is managed by hoteliers Marcelino and Simoné Henckert and is based in a secluded spot on the banks of the Klein River lagoon. It comprises four double suites with private bathrooms and terraces, and generous living areas that open out onto sprawling wooden decks and a heated infinity pool. The kitchen is state-of-the-art, but well-known Stanford chef Madré is available to cater by prior arrangement.
Perivoli Lagoon House is Situated on 140 hectares currently in the process of being proclaimed a nature reserve. There are many adventures and activities within the isolated wilderness, from guided fynbos walks and beach excursions to nearby Walker Bay Nature Reserve, to birdwatching, mountain biking and canoeing. Guests at Perivoli have access to a speedboat to make full use of the unique lakeside location which lends itself to water activities such as water skiing and tubing, as well as fishing. More relaxing pursuits include yoga baskets, in-room massages and lounging around the magnificent swimming pool.
