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.

Blue Crane cottage offers spectacular views from a private veranda that overlooks a dam, the gardens and the Witzenburg Mountains. This charming, two bedroom cottage exudes warmth. Creamy yellows and contrasting earth tones create a simple elegance while the numerous windows capture the morning sun and crisp fresh air. The Italian style bathroom provides a separate shower and bath, wide mirror and lavish basin. The master bedroom is outfitted with white washed french headboards and end tables, a personal vanity and ample cupboard space. The second bedroom has two single beds, storage space and personal vanity.

This private oasis of comfort is nestled in the garden. Vivid greens, blues and cream colors create a tranquil atmosphere both inside and out. Cozy chairs provide the perfect reading spot or linger on the patio while enjoying some wine and a braai. Rich, antique dark woods and greens in the bedroom complete the "cottage-comfort" feel.

Both spacious and cozy Egyptian Goose has a true cottage atmosphere. Soft woods, lovely carpets and warm colors make this cottage captivate and delight. Light greens and crisp whites create a warm and inviting setting for the perfect country escape. Large windows provide excellent views of the gardens surrounding the cottage. Creamy tiles, a sparkling shower and an elegant basin define the bathroom. Curl up in the queen size bed or relax next to the fire on the welcoming couch.

Relax and romance. Designer finishes throughout. Double doors lead to the pool area, beautiful mountain views from bed. Fireplace, King bed, flat screen full DStv, comfy sitting chairs, 5 star bathroom with double stone sinks, bath for two, double shower... the perfect space to really relax!

Named for the swallows that call us home yearly, this suite offers beautiful interiors and comfort. Extra length King bed, shower for two, dressing area, full dstv, and bar fridge are some of the amenities you will find. Swallow suite is both elegant and modern, with designer touches throughout.


Breakfast is served on your veranda or in your cottage at the time you request.
Awake each morning to crisp, fresh air and a gourmet breakfast. Start your day with fresh coffee, tea, juice and perhaps fresh tropical fruit salad with a yogurt parfait.. or a hot English style breakfast with rosemary potatoes and garlic mushrooms... or decadent stuffed french toast with crisp bacon and fruit.
