NEW STAY: Starry Starry Night

by Media Xpose

Eco mountain getaway in Montagu’s Langeberg, Route 62

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers
that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds
in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent’s eyes
of china-blue

We believe there is no better way to recharge your batteries or reignite your soul than to spend time in nature…be that gazing up at dazzling nightskies while soaking in a hot tub, taking a plunge in a refreshing natural mountain rockpool or exploring our fynbos wilderness on foot. We believe in a life where we tread gently on this planet called earth, one where we live more sustainably and in harmony. We believe we’re inextricably part of nature, neither separate nor superior. We believe the divineis in the details, and that small things matter. Welcome to Starry Starry Night.


Tucked away in the dramatic foothills of the Langeberg mountains between Montagu and Barrydale along a tiny mountain road (accessible by all cars except the most low-slung). Far enough from town for a true middle-of-nowhere-feel yet just 2½ hours’ drive from Cape Town and just 25 minutes from Montagu. 


Off-grid and pet-friendly eco farmand mountain reserve. Powered by the sun, boasting spectacular mountain and valley views, with nearly 400ha of pristine fynbos wilderness, natural rockpools, wood-fired hot tub, striking trails and the cosiest cottages in the Cape. Accommodation consists of 2x Mountain Cottages (Gaia and Luna) and 1x Geodesic Stardome (Nova)which also has a second “normal” bedroom. All cottages are fully equipped for self-catering with a very strong focus on finer detail –Mervyn Geers plates, Le Creuset cookware, elegant crystal classes –while keeping it super affordable (from R920/night)


-All cottages are self-catering and pet friendly by prior arrangement

-Cracking fireplace, popcorn, hot chocolate and “smores” come as standard

-Dark night skies and cloudless evenings make for spectacular stargazing

-True year-round destination: super cozy in winter(with KolKol hottub, hot water bottles and snuggly blankets), cool and refreshing in summer (river, rockpools, pooland shaded hammocks)

-Excellentvalue for money (prices from R920 per night per cottage)

-Just 2½ hrs drive from Cape Town and 25mins from Montagu, yet with that “middle-of-nowhere” feel

-Strong focus on conservation and sustainability connects all actions at the reserve

-Delicious farm-cooked meals and seasonal sunset platters available to order
