Villa Tarentaal is set in the most beautiful location. The views from the terrace, gardens and pool are simply lovely and the place exudes calm and relaxation. The hosts could not be more welcoming and have catered for one's compete comfort. The rooms are newly done and spotlessly clean and well equipped. This place is a perfect country retreat and...

Beautifully decorated rooms en-suite and the most amazing breakfasts were served by Graham and his staff on each persons private verandah area. Attention to detail did not go amiss,... More

As a frequent visitor to South Africa and a firm favourite of the Greenwoods Guide, Villa Tarentaal did not disappoint. We stayed the one night on the 11th Nov 2014, and it ticked all the boxes of excellence I would expect from an establishment, listed in the guide. Ideally located just out of the Main area, literally 3 mins car... More

I have visited and revisited Villa Tarentaal in excess of 8 times over the past 3 years. Sometimes it's for a romantic getaway, sometimes a family break and I've even gone there for a solitary sabbatical! Each and every time the service and amenities have been perfect! I can highly recommend VT to all - without a shadow of a... More
