Farm 215 nature retreat is a 4 star country house located on the "Fynbos-road" between Stanford and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape's unspoilt Southern Overberg. Farm 215 is a pioneer in sustainable tourism in the Western Cape and in South Africa. The reserve is covered with unspoilt natural vegetation of the Cape Floristic Region, the smallest but species-richest floral kingdom on earth that has the Western Cape as its only habitat on earth. An important local sanctuary for a plethora of rare and common plant-species, the reserve boasts hundreds of different plants including several Overberg- and local- endemics and is a haven for numerous birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals. The mountain-area of the reserve is a water catchment area and the water-ways are cleared from alien vegetation and re-forested with indigenous species to restore the original flow of the streams. All new buildings are purely electrified by solar-energy and heat-exchange and the operations of the guesthouse are fully compatible with the surrounding nature.
