Hermanus is conveniently situated in terms of easy access to a national airport, day trips and tours, and the N2 highway leading to the Garden Route.
Driving from Cape Town on the N2 take the R43 Hermanus turn-off, staying on the R43 will lead you directly into the centre of town. There will be a Pick-'n-Pay supermarket on the left and a Shell Garage on the right. Turn right at the garage and follow the road towards the sea - it's a very short distance to the stop sign. At the stop sign turn right again. 300m on your right is La Fontaine Guesthouse.
