You’ve finished the hard work, now it’s time for you to spoil yourself with an exciting and relaxing trip away! At Montagu Springs we love hosting our pensioners who deserve a refreshing break. Here are the top 5 reasons why your next trip away should be to Montagu Springs.
1. Pensioner special for up to 45% off
The biggest plus when you come to Montagu is that our pensioners get up to 45% off our comfortable accommodation! Here, you have no responsibilities except relaxing and nothing to worry about. The offer is available Monday to Thursday, meaning that Montagu won’t be swamped with tourists and you can enjoy the tranquillity of our quaint little town.
2. Beautiful natural surroundings
Our resort is nestled in between the Langeberg mountains and forms part of the Western Little Karoo. There are lots of opportunities to engage with the natural surroundings. Within the resort you can relax by one of our pools amongst the trees and mountains and our guests can enjoy a game of tennis on the tennis courts. Outside of the resort there are a variety of easy hikes, like the Loverswalk trail and the Badskloof trail. You can check out our recommended hiking trails here. Beautiful scenic drives and bird watching are other great outdoor activities to do in Montagu.
3. Excellent amenities
Montagu Springs has great amenities like a hot pool, which is perfect for relaxing both in the summer and the winter. If you need to cool off, try one of our cold pools. All our accommodation has access to a fireplace, perfect for a braai and warming your hands. Our accommodation also comes with fully equipped kitchens, meaning that preparing meals are easy-breezy! We’ve created a weekend menu to give you some ideas for meals while staying with us. And if you are feeling like being a kid again, visit our games room, where you can play table tennis or a game of pool.
4. Peace and Quiet
The resort offers peace and quiet for everyone. Montagu is situated about 180 kilometres from Cape Town, making it a great escape to the countryside. The town is situated on Route 62 meaning there is lots to do, but still remains calm. With our fabulous amenities there would be no reason to leave the serenity of the resort.
5. Interesting town activities
If you do choose to leave the resort, however, Montagu has some brilliant activities that our guests love to attend. Every Saturday the Montagu Village Market is held, where you can purchase local produce, crafts, jewellery, clothes, and upcycled items. This market is one of the oldest in the Western Cape and has great vibes with music every week. Montagu is also known as an artistic hub, with many art galleries to visit. Please find a list here. There is an excellent ghost tour, which you can read about here. The tour is led by Marchelle van Zyl, who has gathered the stories from locals, making it an excellent insight into Montagu culture. Montagu also has quite a few restaurants to try out, which you can find out about here. This is only a small taste of what Montagu has to offer!
