Pronounced as F-litch-ita, this Italian word means happiness, satisfaction and bliss. The name says it all of this beautiful piece of heaven on earth.<br />This 100-hectare property boasts untouched fynbos, wildlife and seclusion from the hustle & bustle of everyday life.<br /><br />The Villa is a contemporary, three bedroom self-catering house. Fully equipped and can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.<br />Perfect for families, friends or a romantic getaway for two.<br /><br />It consists of a spacious living area with subtle dcor along with an ambient fireplace that gives an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Perfect for setting the mood in any season or occasion.<br /><br />It has a fully equipped kitchen which instils a sense of being home away from home and also provides all the necessities if you feel the urge to whip up an intimate meal.<br /><br />Our Villas rooms are set out to offer maximum space and are decorated with simplicity. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and a lovely en-suite bath and shower duo. The second bedroom also has a queen size bed, while the third bedroom is set out with four single beds which can easily be converted into a double if required. Each room has sufficient cupboard space. There is a second bathroom which is fitted with a shower.<br /><br />The Patio does not disappoint! Complete with an under roof built-in braai, its breathtaking panoramic views of the landscape and its unforgettable sunrises as well as sunsets, it is the perfect setting for sundowners in the evening and an aromatic coffee in the morning. There is also a "kraal braai" which is a fantastic place to relax with family and friends under the magical starry nights.<br /><br />We do know that four-legged friends are as much a part of the family and therefore they are welcome to join.<br /><br />For the adventurous, you can explore the walking trails in the Milkwood forest or have a picnic at the dam. If you feel like just relaxing, absorb the stunning scenery, lounge in the warm South African sun as the only sounds to be heard are those of birds, the distant crashing waves and the late afternoon roars from the lions at the Big Cat Sanctuary, neighbouring Felicita.<br /><br />You will get the feeling that you are a hundred miles away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, yet only a 15-minute drive from the historic village of Stanford. With biking and walking trails, wine farms, a cheese factory, regular farmers markets, breweries, gin distilleries, fine restaurants and beaches that stretch for kilometres. Felicita is also a mere 30 minute drive to Hermanus, the whale watching capital of South Africa which offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, entertainment and activities.<br /><br />We pride ourselves for being free of alien flora species which is an ongoing problem in the Overberg region. Felicita has a low carbon footprint and is a self-sustaining, eco-friendly operation, which is off the national electricity grid, therefore un-phased by load shedding as all the facilities at Felicita are one hundred percent powered by solar and gas. The water supply is sourced directly from a natural spring which cascades into a stream that flows through the farmland and is carefully processed with a chemical-free filtration system, therefore, is pure as well as safe to drink.

"The location for Villa Felicitas, while a little off the beaten track, is fantastic with uninterrupted views of fynbos and only the sound of birdsong. A perfect, tranquil retreat."

"The was great but we had some serious tick problems.had to check ourselves for ticks every 20 minutes. they were everywhere. we tried to avoid going outside and didn't want to go into the bushes(i came here to see the birds in the bushes) they spoiled our stay. we checked ourselves for ticks before bed yet still found them in our bed when waking up in the middle of the night. we did have two dogs with us which is probably where the ticks came from. I have never seen so many ticks or been so uncomfortable in my life. We nick named the place Tick VillaEstablishment Response: Dear Jeremy,We take cognizance of the fact that nature produces certain creatures especially with the change of seasons (winter to spring) on the Felicita reserve and we have included this information in our documentation provided for your information upon arrival at the Villa.We did not receive communication from you that pets were accompanying you to the Villa, which we do request as part of the T&Cs on the website. We go out of our way to make mention to guests arriving with pets, that pets may encounter certain species on the reserve, small brown ticks being one of them. Pets may carry these into the Villa, which we encourage guests to avoid. Please note that the Villa is free of these tiny creatures under normal conditions unless they are brought in by pets.We hope that you will visit Villa Felicita again."

"We are in our late 60's so we found the lighting for reading in the evenings a bit dim - we often do when we go away! Bed very comfortable and all facilities very good - spotlessly clean. Wonderful place to be able to take dogs. Host and hostess charming and extremely helpful."

"It is so rare to arrive at a weekend venue and find it is exactly what was advertised and what you had hoped for. Peace, privacy, a LOT of open space, comfortable and well equipped accommodation, very easy access to multiple local attractions and - best of all - beautiful flora, fauna and wildlife all around the Villa."

"The perfect spot to recharge your batteries with amazing views from the patio, especially early in the morning having that first cuppa coffee. The accommodation is great - ample space so that you don't feel on top of each other - we were a party of 5 adults and 5 dogs. Loved the outdoor braai and made full use of the indoor fireplace.Thank you Chantelle and Wayne for the excellent service. We will definitely be back again."
