Lovely bedroom with comfortable bed and very tasty breakfasts with very good variety. Evening meal could not be faulted.

Prepare for your breath to be taken away upon arriving, best viewed with a setting sun on a moody evening. This boutique establishment is a touch pricey, but worth the spend for its location and sunny breakfast overlooking the olive groves.

What a lovely place. Booked fairly at the last minute, rather luxurious, great attention to detail, fire place in the bedroom of the cottages, beautiful outdoor showers and a terrace with seating overlooking the gorgeous landscape. Right. And 4 Ostriches casually strolling about.

Spend a night or two in Les Hauts de Montagu (now known as Galenia), it's worth it! The owners are very friendly, they want to go that extra mile for their guests. Parking is free, safe and right outside your suite (cottage), so you don't have to carry your heavy suitcases very far. The estate is a renovated Huguenot farmstead... More

We were a little concerned when we arrived to find that Les Hautes was under new management but we should not have worried as Walter and his team were wonderful. They were helpful and made you feel welcomed. The breakfasts were a treat for the eyes and stomach. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for such a memorable stay.

We were not sure whether we should stop in the Montagu area during our trip, however, this place made it definitely worth it. The most unique aspect is the HUGE property. I could easily go for a 10 km run in the morning without entering public roads at all. Be it the pool, the jacuzzi, your private terrace in the... More

A wonderful 3 night stay at this family run guesthouse. Rooms are beautiful and spacious with wonderful roll top baths and fabulous private terraces with amazing views. Basil's breakfast was so delicious and the head of 'front of house' "JC" was welcoming and charming. Lovely pool complete with resident ostriches. Lots of walking tracks and the staff will do anything... More

Les Hauts de Montagu is stunningly located only 3 km outside of the lovely town of Montagu. It is elevated a little and the terraces offer fantastic views of the mountains and the olive trees. It is clearly indicated and easy to find. The main building is where the reception is and where breakfast is served. Sara and JC and... More
