Tanagra Wine and Guest Farm is a highly recommended property for self catering in McGregor for tourists visiting the Breede River Valley region.

About Tanagra Wine and Guest Farm

Tanagra is an idyllic wine and guest farm with character in the McGregor Valley providing a stylish and yet authentic countryside experience in tastefully furnished accommodation for the wine and nature lover. Tanagra is a wine farm surrounded by vineyards, indigenous fynbos and mountains. It is located 4.5 km outside McGregor and adjoins the Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve.

Most parts of the farm are accessible by various walking / hiking trails (also great for mountain-biking), which can easily be extended into the neighbouring Vrolikjkheid Nature Reserve. It is a great place for bird-watching (172 species have recently been specified). The quaint 19thc village of McGregor is located just 5 km further up the road (which ends there!) and is a great spot to experience country hospitality at its best.


Tanagra offers six units, three cottages (Garden Cottage, Hill Cottage, Faraway), two apartments (Bottlebrush and Gumtree) and the Loft studio. Most units are located around the old historic Tanagra homestead and the boutique wine cellar. The Hill Cottage sits in the midst of fynbos overlooking the vineyards with spectacular views into the McGregor valley. Faraway is a new addition to the farm cottages, an eco and architect’s house located at the most solitary spot on the farm – just fynbos and mountains and silence.

All units have their own unique character, are tastefully furnished with the intention to provide a naturally elegant farm ambience (see eg stone structures, reed ceilings, carefully chosen equipment) and boast scenic views on mountains and / or dam. Please note that most units sleep two adults (exceptions possible for Loft studio, the Garden Cottage and Gumtree Apartment on request); Faraway has two en-suite bedrooms and sleeps four persons (extra beds possible for children).

Units are let on a self-catering basis. For those who like to eat out, there are some lovely restaurants in McGregor, only a 5 minutes' drive away from us. The little restaurant at the Donkey Sanctuary, just across the road from Tanagra (in walking distance) is open Thursday from Sunday from 10h00 to 16h00.

Garden Cottage:
Spacious and tastefully furnished one-bedroom cottage (sleeping two adults) situated close to the swimming pool while still providing privacy. Fully equipped separate kitchenette (gas hot plates), en-suite bathroom (toilet and shower), fireplace (indoors) and large private and covered verandah with inbuilt fireplace/braai and scenic views right onto Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve.

Bottlebrush and Gumtree Apartments:
Two charming, spacious and tastefully furnished one-bedroom apartments (sleeping two adults each) as part of the large guest wing attached to the old Tanagra homestead. Wooden floor and high vault reed ceilings make these apartments light and airy. The kitchens are fully equipped (gas hot plates). Fireplaces (indoors). Private entrance and a private (and covered) verandah with scenic views on the mountains. En-suite bathrooms with electrical plugs (toilet, walk-in shower and bath in Bottlebrush; toilet and shower in Gumtree). Private braai places at the cottage (in the garden).

Loft Studio:
Very spacious studio above the old Tanagra winery with adjoining large wooden and sunny deck providing scenic views over the mountains and the beautiful farm dam. En-suite bathroom (toilet and shower). Fully equipped kitchenette. Indoor fireplace. Private outdoor braai and hammock close to the dam.

Hill Cottage:
Private and romantic cosy cottage set amidst indigenous fynbos and overlooking the Tanagra vineyards with breathtaking views over the McGregor valley. Fully equipped one-bedroom cottage with large kitchenette area, open fireplace, en-suite bathroom (toilet, walk-in shower and bath). Private plunge pool with scenic views in valley. Large shaded verandah with fireplace / braai.

Most secluded of all cottages, this is a two bedroom architect's house (both bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms), built in the style of a Cape Dutch Langhuis in a conserved area of Karoo veld and fynbos and run on solar and wind energy. Large panorama windows allow an unobstructed view into the pristine landscape from wherever you are in the cottage. Separate lounge / kitchenette (fully equipped) with open fireplace. Two spacious and shaded verandahs in front and back of the house with attached plunge pool and spectacular views on the mountains and into the Robertson valley. Two braai (barbecue) areas outside.


Your hosts Anette and Robert will give you a warm and personal welcome and gladly show you the farm and introduce you to the Tanagra wines and grappas in private tastings (see also ‘wine and grappa experience at Tanagra’ below). Guests have the choice between keeping privately to themselves (all units secure your privacy) or joining each other in the garden (and winery). The units are fully serviced every third day (linen change every 6 days). English and German spoken.

Wine experience at Tanagra

Verified reviewexcellent

This was our second stay at Faraway Cottage and we loved it as much as the first time. The peace and quiet, and the views from the patio and pool make it impossible not to relax and leave your daily stress behind for a few days. Many thanks to Anette and Robert for the warm welcome and for creating this hideaway.

Verified reviewexcellent

Well laid out spacious accomodation. Well decorated and equiped with anyhting you may need. A comprehensivew information pack of activities and recommended restaurants and deli's in the surrounding area was a useful and much appreciated addition. The hosts are firendly and offer honest suggestions on activities and restaurants in the area. Our only regret is that we only had one night to stay and arrived late in the afternoon - more time is needed to really appreciate the relaxed atmosphere
