About La Fontaine Hermanus

La Fontaine is a deluxe guest retreat perfect for a rejuvenating break, a golf vacation with a choice of courses, a perfect romantic getaway or whale viewing holiday in South Africa.

At the southernmost tip of Africa, perched on the edge of the majestic Atlantic Ocean, you will find a guest house that is very aptly named - La Fontaine embodies the symbolism of the fountain. It is the perfect place to relax, and rejuvenate body, mind and soul.

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.

Excellent location within walking distance of most restaurants and the beach walking route. Beautiful establishment, fine attention to detail!

Verified reviewexcellent

A wonderful guest house, very personal with family-like owners and staff. We stayed two nights and even thought about staying longer, but La Fontaine was already fully booked. The rooms as well as patio and living room are incredibly comfortable with an inviting Victorian furniture and very high attention to detail. The incredible highlight of our stay was when we watched whales right from the patio enjoying a delightful breakfast. We would always come back again and can truly recommend the place.
