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 garden rooms overlook the pond, olive grove and beautiful surrounding mountains. 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 with glorious views of the olive grove and surrounding mountains, sipping a glass of chilled wine.
Guests can otherwise simply relax in the cosy lounge with a book from our library.
Montagu Vines is just a 10 minute walk 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 tired travellers to rest and unwind and a beautiful spot to celebrate those special occasions...or just an intimate weekend away!
You may be lucky and see the "resident" owls perched in the old oak tree or meet one of the big tortoises in the olive grove that visit from the adjacent nature reserve.
Please note that smoking is only permitted outdoors and children should be over 12 years of age.

Health & Climate:
The weather is perfect - far enough South to escape the heat of the "Klein Karoo"; yet far enough North to get away from the long wet winters of the Cape.
In winter the days are warm and sunny with the occasional hint of rain. Spring season brings a kaleidoscope of colours. From October one can expect long sunny days, with the fragrance of roses drifting on the air, and warm balmy evenings.
