Les Hauts De Montagu

Les Hauts De Montagu

Not only a magnificent guest lodge just two hours from Cape Town, Les Hauts de Montagu is also a renowned olive farm, cultivating several popular olive varieties and producing its own olive oil. From its spectacular vantage point on the slopes of the Langeberg Mountains, this highly rated guest lodge is ideally located on scenic Route 62 between Montagu and Barrydale. Captivating natural gardens welcome guests to discover the beauties of indigenous fynbos and unique succulents.

A Classic Room at Les Hauts de Montagu offers all of (and more than) the comforts of home, including fireplace, bathroom with heated floors, Victorian bathtub, outside shower, and stocked mini bar fridge. For an even more luxurious experience, book a Deluxe Room which offers all of the amenities of a Classic Room as well as a remote control DSTV and private veranda with breathtaking views. For the ultimate accommodation experience, choose Les Hauts de Montagu’s elegant Honeymoon Suite featuring an incredible four-poster queen bed and stunning views of the Karoo Koppies and olive orchard below.

With several olive groves, Les Hauts de Montagu produces several delicious varieties, including Frantoio, Manzanillo and Mission, the most popular South African cultivar. The Frantoio variety is used to produce the farm’s own exceptional extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil.

In addition to exploring the olive farm, guests are encouraged to hike one of the eight well-mapped wilderness trails on the guest farm’s nearly 1,500 acres. Keep your eyes open for some of the area’s native wildlife, including black eagle, rock dassy, tortoise, duiker, klipspringer, ostrich, and numerous other wild bird species. The Petanque Bowling Alley, jogging trail, and swimming pool also offer enjoyable diversions for travelers escaping from the routine to enjoy a relaxing getaway.

In the surrounding areas of Montague village and beyond, guests can pursue their choice of adventures. Activities range from golfing, rock climbing, and hiking to visits to the Robertson Wine Valley Route, Hot Springs Valley Spa, Montagu Village Market, and Soekershof Maze Labyrinth.
