Description

Aasvoëlkrans is a B & B on the outskirts of historic and picturesque Montagu - the Western Cape's gateway to the Little Karoo. The main house and guest units were designed by the host's award-winning designer and daughter. Aasvoëlkrans is steeped in a tranquil Platteland atmosphere with the magnificent red sandstone rock formations of the Little Karoo as backdrop. Guests can choose from three guest units with large bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. All of the rooms are decorated to reflect the rustic ambience of the area. Situated in the Little Karoo, the town of Montagu is about 180 kilometers from Cape Town, and 200 kilometers from Oudtshoorn, the Little Karoo's ostrich capital. Outdoor activities in the area include visiting the hot springs, rock climbing or taking the popular tractor ride to the top of the Langeberg Mountains. The rates for children are R50 per person. Out of season you can enjoy a 20% discount on all tariffs. The rates for a single person depend on the occupancy at the time of booking.

Aasvoëlkrans is a stud farm, so it offers facilities of the outdoor kind. In summer, cool off in the private swimming pool, or go hiking in the mountains. There is plenty of sunshine in the large garden, and when the sun goes down, experience the romanticism of bright starry nights. The guest units each have a large bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. All the bathrooms have showers as well. The units have single and double beds to choose from, as well as heated floors for the wintertime. All linen is 100% hand embroidered linen. The facilities can sleep six adults and four to five children. One of the rooms has a television. The luxurious en-suite bathrooms all have showers and are decorated with paintings and kelims. The main house has a spacious and comfortable lounge that guests can use. The bedrooms in the guest units have private, shady little stoeps where you can relax and enjoy drinks and conversation. The fresh farm air at Aasvoëlkrans will definitely give you an appetite. Guests can enjoy large, beautifully laden breakfasts in the dining room. If you have any specific preference, your hosts will happily cater for it. The town has many restaurants, such as the Wild Apricot Restaurant and Preston's Restaurant and Thomas Bain Pub (open seven days a week, 9am till late). Aasvoëlkrans offers a country atmosphere where you can relax among paddocks with Arab stud horses, and enjoy fresh mountain air. It is a perfect weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can horse ride on the farm itself.

One of the town's main tourist attractions is the Montagu Hot Mineral Water Springs. The springs are situated at Badskloof and the water is a lovely 43° Celsius. Hike along the Aasvoëlkrans Hiking route, which starts at the B+B. There are various trails in the area to choose from, such as the Cogmans Kloof Trail and the Bloupunt Trail. Even if you are not a wine lover, it is well worth visiting the wineries around Montagu, such as Uitvlucht, Rietrivier, Drie Berge and the Montagu Co-op Wine Cellar. Go and see the Thomas Bain Memorial Plaque and the old English Fort near the tunnel in Cogmans Kloof. Otherwise, take a stroll in town and visit the Town Museum and other historic houses. Your host is Jeanne Alston, a long-time resident of Montagu. She loves entertaining people and sharing their country home with local and overseas guests. Put on your ‘cozzie’ and head for the Montagu Hot Mineral Water Springs, one of the towns’ main tourist attractions. The springs are situated at Badskloof and the water is a steamy 43° Celsius. The mountainous area offers greast hiking routes, such as the Aasvoëlkrans Hiking route, which starts at the B&B. Other trails in the area include the Cogmans Kloof Trail and the Bloupunt Trail. Montagu is also wine country. Visit wineries such as Uitvlucht, Rietrivier, Drie Berge and the Montagu Co-op Wine Cellar. The town has a rich historic heritage. There is a memorial for Thomas Bain, as well as an old English Fort dating from the Anglo-Boer War near the tunnel in Cogmans Kloof.

We had a wonderful stay at the peaceful, beautiful Aasvoelkrans guesthouse. Jeanne was a gracious and helpful hostess. We felt very comfortable in the spacious, tastefully decorated cottage we stayed in. We would recommend the establishment very highly to anyone seeking a special weekend away or holiday break in Montagu. Please be advised that the guesthouse is only about 1km from the centre of town ( NOT 9km as stated on the safarinow website). This is ideal for travelers looking for both the privacy and tranquility of the countryside as well as the convenience of being close to the necessary local amenities. Thanks Jeanne for your hospitality!

Absolutely loved it! One of the nicest places to stay at in Montagu - we'll definitely be back.

17 November 2010

We were very pleased with the nicely decorated room and the king-size bed. The place has a lovely garden to relax in and also the setting is very nice. Although the B&B is not in the center restaurants are nearby.

Stunning location, tranquility and quality combined. I you want peace, countryside, birdlife, hearty breakfasts, all whilst surrounded by picturesque mountains plus a good size pool for cooling off, this is your heaven. Oh and Montague has two excellent fine dining restaurants (Jessica's and Templeton's) and plenty of simpler ones too.

This B&B is located in a wonderful garden, you basically live in little Garden-Rooms, all small very nicely decorated houses with lovely architecture. The garden is amazing and I would love to come back in Summer to enjoy it totally. The room was decorated with so much love to detail, lots of fresh flowers and lovely bedding / linen. The bed area has underfloor heating as well as a panel heating which makes it also cozy during coldish days. A place to hide away and enjoy romantic times! I am sure I will back! Thanks ;-)
