Montagu Vines is situated in the historic conservation area of Montagu. The main farmhouse was built between 1900 and 1905 and reflects the early Victorian-influenced Karoo-styled farmhouses of that period.
The garden rooms overlook the olive grove and stunning surrounding mountains and compliment the stately main house. 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 locally produced wine from local wine estates from the area.
On a cold winter's evening, you can curl up with a book, next to the fire-place in your garden room.
