Stunning Selah mountain retreat

12 5 4
Selah is majestically positioned at the hang of the iconic Overberg Mountain range, providing superior views of both the azure-blue ocean and lush Fynbos mountain scape. With dramatic architecture emulating the beautiful flow of the encapsulating peaks, Selah offers true luxury from every vantage point, and is a peaceful safe haven for guests who want to pause and reflect. This villa features spacious self-catering accommodation, ideal for families in need of vast open spaces, yet desiring the need for privacy. The sleek pool and undercover BBQ/braai area are set for family entertainment, whilst the Fynbos garden attracts birdlife from afar.

Upon having crossed a tranquil pond bridge, guests are beckoned to step into Selah’s grand display of spectacular wooden architecture throughout the spacious main living, dining and kitchen areas, a feature unlike any other in Hermanus. Fine art and furniture compliment the cathedral-like ceilings, and are carefully expressed throughout. The mountain-side garden court and pool area are a main attraction with relaxation, entertainment and family togetherness being the centrepiece for much needed pause-and-reflect moments. The large el fresco dining table and outdoor braai/BBQ enhance the joy of holiday fun, and this is pulled into the main living area of the villa. A lovely fireplace in the lounge shouts, “Stay… Stare… Reconnect… Revitalise.”
