Pronounced as Fè-litch-ita, this Italian word means happiness, satisfaction and bliss.
Felicita offers two uniquly styled self-catering houses. Upon entering, your mind and soul transfers into a tranquil and enchanting place where you feel your stress melting away, soothed by the light, space and spectacular views of the Kleinrivier mountains.
The property dominates the top of a Stanford Valley hillside, north-facing, surrounded by pristine fynbos reserves, with indigenous flora unique to the Overberg region.
For the adventurous, you can explore the walking trails in the Milkwood forest or have a picnic at the dam. If you feel like just relaxing, absorb the stunning scenery, lounge in the warm South African sun as the only sounds to be heard are those of birds, the distant crashing waves and the late afternoon roars from the lions at the Big Cat Sanctuary, neighbouring Felicita.
You will get the feeling that you are a hundred miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, yet only a 15-minute drive from the historic village of Stanford. With biking and walking trails, wine farms, a cheese factory, regular farmer’s markets, breweries, gin distilleries, fine restaurants and beaches that stretch for kilometres. Felicita is also a mere 30 minute drive to Hermanus, the whale watching capital of South Africa which offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, entertainment and activities.
