Auberge Burgundy

What could be a better than a French-style, boutique guesthouse in the heart of Hermanus, one of the world’s most incredible eco-destinations? Auberge Burgundy exceeds expectations for a provincial villa, idyllic for its charming details, green courtyards, stone terraces, and private balconies. Hermanus, South Africa, is most famous for its whales during the southern winter and spring. The lodge itself affords whale-watching from its position along Walker Bay on the coast of the Western Cape.

Auberge Burgundy Guesthouse is set above the Old Harbour, offering magnificent scenic views of the bay and ocean life below. The two luxury Penthouse Suites are interleading and able to accommodate up to seven guests. Three other suites and thirteen standard rooms offer excellent accommodation for up to three guests each. Standard features in all rooms include heated floor, heated towel rails, walk-in dressing room, en-suite bathroom, telephone, TV, bar fridge, and coffee/tea-making facilities.

A delightful full English and buffet breakfast is served in the on-site Burgundy Restaurant and is included in the rate. A secure parking area allows guests to feel safe when arriving as well as leaving their car for the day.

A variety of thrilling outdoor adventures await guests of Auberge Burgundy Guesthouse. Ocean cruises departing from Kleinbaai promise unforgettable marine experiences. On the 2.5 hour cruise, guests often see southern right whale, Bryde’s whale, Humpback whale, cape fur seal, African penguin, great white shark, dolphin, and diverse bird species.

Nearby Dyer Island hosts great white shark cage diving and surface viewing. Guests dive with the great whites (using safety equipment!), making for a fun-filled and memorable adventure. Other popular area excursions include flying over Walker Bay while looking for whales from a small plane, sea kayaking in Walker Bay Sanctuary, touring a local winery, horseback riding, sea fishing, sand-boarding, tandem paragliding, and quad biking (four-wheeling).
