We decided to explore Route 62 and searched the web for luxurious stays on the route. Montagu, what a beutiful little town. We booked at Galenia Estate for a 2 night stay. What a stunning hidden gem it turned out to be. Surrounded by mountain ranges, olive trees and Fynbos, Galenia Estate had so much more on offer. On arrival...

However they did charge a light cheese plate, although...

Unfortunately, we only had one night at the Galenia Estate, but my goodness, we enjoyed it. We received a genuine and very friendly welcome and were shown to our room and given a tour of the facilities. Our room was beautiful, with a balcony overlooking stunning views, a large bathroom and outside shower - which was just perfect! We did...

The Estate is just outside Montagu and clearly indicated. It offers great walks, but be sure to bring a map as we found one of the walks wasn't indicated clearly. Another was, though. So the map can be useful. There are 10 rooms in Galenia. Although soundproofing has been done, some sounds from neighbouring rooms is audible. All other works...

The stony track up this hotel does not give away what is a beautifully tranquil and elegant getaway from it all destination. Quiet & comfortable rooms, very tastefully furnished, overlooking the olive groves then sweeping down across the valley to the mountains in the far distance make this a great place to hang your hat for a while. The main...

We stayed here 1 night in January and can't wait to head back!
