Montagu was founded in 1851 on the farm Uitvlucht. The first properties, which were sold along Long Street, became small “town farms” and today The Klein Nektar Wine & Olive Estate is one of the most picturesque of these town farms. Built in 1860, this beautiful town farm Cape Dutch dwelling was one of two heritage houses with a cellar forming an integral part of the main house. The property forms part of an important historical and architectural heritage of Montagu.
The property developed as the Klein Nektar Farm Cottages and Klein Nektar Luxury Manor Suites. Situated along the very popular Route 62 which links two main cities namely Cape Town and Port Elizabeth has made this 3-hectare town farm dwelling surrounded by the majestic Langeberge a favourite amongst many foreign and local visitors. The Estate is within easy walking distance from restaurants and shops. Take a deep breath and take it all in . . .

This charming, privately positioned cottage with farm style look and feel has an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge with a spectacular, deep shaded wrap-around terrace. The combustion stove will ensure you keep warm and cosy on cold evenings. Enjoy a traditional braai in the private garden with stunning mountain and olive grove views.
The Cottage is also equipped with a private “Kol-Kol” wood-fired hot tub, perfect for sundowners on a hot Montagu evening.
Although the cottage is within easy walking distance of all the restaurants and shops in Montagu, it feels as though you are on a quiet farm in the middle of the country… far away from civilization. Lack of electronics will ensure that you rest up in peace.
For your convenience, we provide complimentary bottled water, instant & filter coffee, tea, sugar, milk, salt & pepper, one bundle firewood and a few additional surprises.
All this is for your own private use (whether you book for 2 or 4) as you will be the only guests at the Klein Nektar Self-Catering Cottage
