Felicita is a 100 hectare untouched fynbos and wildlife reserve located a mere 15 minute drive from the quaint village of Stanford
(Overberg region, Western Cape).


Felicita is one of the most beautiful and picturesque places in the Stanford Valley. Perfect for a romantic intimate wedding celebration at Dimora Felicita, or a relaxing getaway at Villa Felicita.

Crashing waves in the distance, early morning roars from the lions at Panthera Africa nearby and chirping birdlife on your doorstep will be the only sounds you’ll hear. The sound of peace and tranquility is prized at Felicita.

From holiday accommodation offering quality time with family and friends, and romantic stay specials at Villa Felicita to fairytale wedding celebrations at Dimora Felicita, we offer custom made accommodation and event packages to suit any budget, any time of the week.

Felicita’s wedding venue and accommodation offers a wide range of personally designed possibilities that will suit your desires.

Mountain, fynbos and green field vistas are endless. Our dam offers tranquility and relaxation, perfect for a summer swim, a picnic under the trees and provides an idyllic background for your photographs. The milkwood forest offers to host your wedding ceremony and invites the nature lover to explore its hidden secrets and spot the natural wild life.


We Care Passionately

Preserving and harnessing the natural environment is our mission. All the facilities at Felicita are as eco-friendly as possible. All water comes directly from our natural stream and is carefully purified through a chemical-free filtration system making it 100% pure and safe to drink. Power is provided by solar systems and gas while fireplaces stocked with local wood provide winter warmth. We recycle as much waste as possible. With a vast variety of fynbos species, we maintain an alien-plant free environment to promote the growth of indigenous flora.

We provide a caring, comfortable, happy and private environment so leave it all behind, far behind and enjoy Felicita’s perfect patch of paradise.
