About Villa Tarentaal
Villa Tarentaal is named after the guinea fowl that run freely in our secluded gardens. The Villa is a combination of historic Cape Dutch architecture and romantic Italian villa, giving you a wine lands feel like no other. Dramatic views of the Witzenburg mountains, olive orchard and surrounding vineyards invite you to relax and renew. This serene setting combined with your luxury cottage, which provides the privacy and comforts of home, guarantee a memorable stay.
Fusing comfort and beauty our cottages provide a setting to linger and relax. Our cottages are named after some of the exquisite bird life that surround the villa.
