This retreat comprises several different types and sizes of accommodation. We stayed in Lavender cottage which was joined to Rosemary cottage. Lavender was nice enough - tiny but reasonably appointed kitchen (microwave and small oven) and two single beds. Wood and electric fire inside and wood braai outside and electric blankets (well appreciated!). But Rosemary cottage has by far the... More

We found Ravenna Mountain Retreat to be very peaceful and quiet. Nice open air spaces for kids to run around and play, nice walks for all to enjoy, pity we didn't bring our Mountain Bikes, will definitely bring those next time. Chalets are basic yet sufficient for self-catering. Montagu town is close by should you have forgotten anything. The braai... More

Ravenna is a fantastic venue for short - or long term stays - if you're visiting Montagu / Barrydale. Not only are they well situated and cost-effective, but along with that they offer warm service, and gorgeous little cabins let on a B&B or self-catering basis. The venue is quite secluded, as are all the cabins. They have incredibly cute... More

Glorious views, wonderful hikes, welcoming and unobtrusive - but willing and helpful staff (always smiling).. the silence here is so rejuvenating. It's been years since we've picked organic sun-ripened apricots straight off the tree, or had a swim in the dam (or two resident pools). The infinity pool at Eden is well worth the walk up there. A range of... More

Just returned from a weekend away at Ravenna Mountain Retreat. Can highly recommend to travellers looking for a simple, relaxed get away in tranquil surroundings. There are a range of cottages on the property all with their own quaintness. A value for money experience and an awesome way to get away from it all to rejuvenate the soul. A variety... More

Getting away from it all where never truer than the visit to Ravenna. Snuggling at the foot of the majestic Langeberg Mountains you have the most amazing views! At the back the towering mountains and at the front the sweeping country side! It feels as if you are in the middle of the veld. Landing at Ravenna I could feel... More

After a tiresome journey the relaxing homecoming to Ravenna was more than I could have expected. The lodgings were warm and simplistically stylish – a constant reminder for us to rest and relax. The friendly staff, graciously guarding dogs and breath taking views was all we needed to ensure that we got the relaxing break desperately needed. Combine the picturesque... More

I stayed at Ravenna with a group of friends. Part of the stay was a photo course that the owner Laresa Perlman gave. I must say it was extremely beneficial and the best I have been on - I can now understand all basics needed for photography - A must do for those that want to understand more. The farm... More

Yes, Ravenna is a tad scruffy and the cottage we stayed in only had one lavatory for four people, but there was another just around the corner in another part of the building...What are people complaining about? You can pay four times as much for a communal tent in some larny Game Park and get bitten to death by mosquitoes.... More
