I celebrated my birthday at Tanagra with some close friends and stayed at Hill Cottage which is just such a lovely space set away from the main buildings on a hill overlooking McGregor. Anette and Robert came to South Africa from Germany to live their dream and relocated to McGregor. They are the most unbelievable hosts and made us feel a part of their family. Anette's German breakfast was a gourmet delight and almost everthing served at the table was made specially for us including the breads, jams and pate's.
Their wines are extremely quaffable and Robert makes a style of grappa in different flavours such as lemon and apricot plus many others too.
Tanagra is an unpretentious place with a wonderfully livable decor style and a few days here will put life back into perspective

Relax under the magnificent old wild fig tree in the garden or at the pool, watch the birds, which are there in abundance, stroll along, swim or go fishing in the big dam, go for anything between a leisurely walk in the vineyards or the veld to a more serious hike in the adjoining Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve. ... more less
