Klapmuts Rd., Cape Wineland, , South Africa

This rambling 17th-century Cape Dutch–style farm estate in the Cape Winelands is no rough-and-ready dude ranch. Rehabilitated by Afrikaans designer-owner Karen Roos, 14 guest rooms in three traditional landhuises (cottages) have been done up with vintage beds, Victorian claw-foot tubs, and chic, all-white sofas and rugs. For traveling gourmands, some cottages offer kitchens—glassed-in cubes facing an eight-acre garden from which you can pick your own herbs, fruits and vegetables, the same produce used by the chefs at the restaurant, Babel.
