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 historic original fresh water fountain around which the village of Hermanus was founded over a hundred years ago when a school teacher from a farm over the mountain herded his sheep down to the sea during the summer holidays, searching for fresh grazing and discovered, to his delight, this paradise. For many years thereafter Hermanus was a place to which people came from far and wide, in search of the rejuvenating champagne air - for which it is now famous.

At La Fontaine you will find yourself immersed in comfortable luxury and surrounded by the uplifting sights and sounds of waves and Southern Right whales in season. Hermanus is the best land based whale watching spot in the world – and La Fontaine has pride of place.
