Camissa Farm means “place of sweet water” in Khoi. It is in the lovely Banhoek Valley between Stellies and Franschhoek. Set high in the mountains, in the clouds with a stunning view into the valley itself and across the valley floor to the Simonsberg.

Just  eight minutes from Stellies and wonderful restaurants, it feels as if you are miles from anywhere. With 60 hectares of landscaped orchards and wild fynbos, farming is on a small scale and orchards are mixed to promote diversity. Olives, almonds, lemons, rosemary, garlic, rose-geranium, avos, walnuts, macadamia, and asparagus live happily together.


It is a place to reconnect with nature. Enjoy a walk in one of the most beautiful valleys in South Africa. Float in one of our pristine dams and fill your water bottles from a crystal clear stream. Find a quiet spot to relax and read or just enjoy a sunset hot tub soak. There is a nesting pair of jackal buzzards which circle constantly and at night you will hear nightjars calling and clicking stream frogs chirruping by the dam.

The Banhoek valley boasts a scenic tennis club and bikes can be hired locally. It is a heavenly spot for mountain biking.


Accommodation is self catering in beautifully decorated modern, Scandinavian type wooden cottages or a renovated barn. All are light and airy with lovely outlooks and privacy.

All cottages have:

A full kitchen and a fire pit braai (barbecue).

Fireplace or wood burning stove, and air conditioning for temperature control in the bedroom.

Bathrooms have shower, basin and w/c.

WiFi and secure parking.
