Mountain Shadows Guesthouse is situated on a working wine and olive farm at the foot of the picturesque Drakenstein mountains in the heart of the Cape Winelands, a few minutes away from Paarl. The historic Cape Dutch manor house dates back to 1823 and has been declared a national monument.

Within easy reach of Cape Town and Cape Town International Airport, our guesthouse is an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Cape and its many scenic and tourist attractions. Visit the surrounding wine-estates, play a round of golf on our own 6-hole golf course or on one of the many world-class golf courses nearby.

Take a stroll amongst our vineyards or along the river that borders the estate, view the abundant bird-life, try your hand at fly-fishing in our bass dam or lounge by the poolside and soak up the peace of the estate.

Mountain Shadows is more than a guesthouse - it is a celebration of life, family, friends, food and wine. Come and visit us in the shadow of the mountain…and rejuvenate your soul.

The following languages are spoken at Mountain Shadows: English, Afrikaans, German, French, Finnish and Swedish.

Our talented and enthusiastic kitchen staff prepare mouth-watering dishes using only the finest local ingredients and fresh produce. Scrumptious breakfasts are prepared daily. Lunch and dinner can be ordered from a set menu that varies according to the season.

Select wines to match the cuisine and suit your taste from our superb wine cellar or allow us to do so for you. Picnic baskets packed with all kinds of delicacies are also available.
