Montagu Vines is a magical place, a charming Colonial-style house and garden, set between its own vineyard and the rocky cliff of the nearby hills. The location is truly beautiful, yet it stands so close to the centre of the small, elegant town of Montagu, within easy walking distance of all services (including the excellent restaurant Jessica's, mentioned by other visitors).
Richard and Clare are the most welcoming and caring hosts. Our room, though not all that large, was so pretty and comfortable - and if the weather had treated us more kindly we would have delighted in the adjoining verandah. The garden, filled with flowers and scent and complete with leopard tortoise, is the perfect place for relaxation. We could happily have stayed for days.
While in Montagu, don't miss the extraordinary 'bird tree', as large a concentration of nesting birds - including several varieties of ibis, heron and egret, not to mention weaver birds and others - as you will ever see anywhere in the world.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Montagu Vines is situated in the historic conservation area of Montagu. The main farmhouse was built between 1900 and 1910 and reflects the early Victorian influenced Karoo style farmhouse of that period. The 6 Garden rooms and 3 Farm House Rooms overlook the newly planted Olive Grove and compliment the stately main house. Following the damage to the vines from the floods of November 2008 the vineyard was removed in 2010 and replanted with an olive grove.We offer our guests a taste of old- fashioned comfort and luxury in the town of Montagu on the world famous "Route 62". You can relax in the splash pool set in the tranquil gardens with magnificent old oak and milkwood trees. Alternatively, you could lounge on the lawns enjoying the glorious views of the surrounding mountains whilst sipping a glass of Chenin Blanc. Montagu Vines is just a stroll away from the centre of Montagu with its amenities that cater for all tastes and interests. There are restaurants, bistros, historic churches and tranquil gardens for the visitor to enjoy. Montagu Vines is the perfect place for those intimate weekends, birthdays, and anniversaries or as a stopover whilst discovering "Route 62" and all it has to offer. You may be lucky and see the "resident" owls perched in the old oak tree or meet one of the big tortoises in the vineyard that visit from the adjacent nature reserve. ... more less
