Unforgettable Experiences on the Hermanus Lagoon

A stay at Perivoli Lagoon House allows you to truly enjoy all the experiences the surrounding Hermanus Klein River lagoon, mountains and beach have to offer.

Perivoli’s Endless Experiences Await

Whether visiting the Western Cape for the first time or looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city for a weekend away, Perivoli Lagoon House offers the perfect escape. Our luxury villa easily accommodates a group of eight friends or a family looking to make new memories. Plus, plenty of experiences are on offer to tug at your heartstrings and delight anyone and everyone.
Perivoli Lagoon House is found along South Africa’s scenic Whale Coast, just a two-hour drive from Cape Town or 137 km from Cape Town International Airport. There are many quaint and idyllic stops along the route, including Hermanus and Stanford, the closest towns to Perivoli.

The beautiful placement of Perivoli provides undisturbed views of the stunning Hermanus Klein River Lagoon and mountains. Set in a stunning 140-hectare reserve of colourful fynbos, Perivoli allows for seemingly endless exploration and activities, both in the area and further afield, providing a true ‘destination within a destination’.

Wellness at Our Lagoon Edge Estate

A Birding Destination of Note

Without the city chaos disturbing them, birdlife flourishes in our area, and you can closely admire them. With over 140 bird species recorded in the area, enjoy a walk through the wilderness while a private guide helps you spot and identify the various birds. Just embrace the quiet and calmer moments – besides, you’re on holiday, and stress is for the birds!
