About Klaasvoogds Cottage
Klaasvoogds Cottage offers charming, luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation and is well-equipped for long stays.
The Cape Georgian cottage lies in the beautiful Klaasvoogds Valley at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains. It is centrally located in the Robertson wine valley on Route 62, within easy reach of many places of interest. The nearest towns are Robertson and the quaint Klein Karoo town of Montagu, which has to be one of the prettiest towns in South Africa with its mix of vineyards, small orchards and beautiful heritage buildings.
For those who are laid back - enjoy lovely views of the vineyards and mountains from every window, and on chilly nights settle in with a book or a glass of lovely, local wine in front of the roaring fire. In summer - as the day cools - relax on the porch and watch the fiery sunset give way to a night sky sparkling with stars. Eat gorgeous food at South Africas finest, award-winning restaurants, including Fraai Uitzicht and Reubens.
Taste wine at the more than 50 wine estates, taste olives at Igadi Olive Oil or locally made cheese at Montagne Deli. Go for game drives. Swim or fish at the nearby Breede River or try to spot some of the 250 species of birds. And for the wildly energetic? Climb mountains, run or cycle along picturesque country roads, or exhaust yourselves with all the activities in the area.
