A little gem in the Overberg. - Want to relieve a little of your city stress? Then take a hike in to our mountains that surround our quaint village of MONTAGU. Take a while to listen to the sounds of the many bird species we have here, or take a tractor trip in the nearby Koo valley that takes one to great heights up the mountain side. Be it a quiet time you're after, or just a little adventure out of the ordinary, then our quaint village of MONTAGU beckons you. Finish off each day at one of our many quaint country style restaurants, you'll love the experience. Our friendly village continues to draw guests back time and again, and they tell me: Such a friendly town you have, and there's just so much to do! Try us, you'll love the experience.

Geology abounds - The entrance to Montagu through the Cogmanskloof highlights the incredible layered rock formations of the folded Cape mountains. Montagu is itself located on the extremely interesting Bokkeveld Shale formations. It was while these rocks were being laid down under the sea that life is believed to have first emerged and taken hold on the land. These formations are perhaps best seen in the nearby Keisie Valley.

Sleepy town - Montague is a nice little town but visitors unfamiliar to the area should note that most shops etc close around lunchtime saturday until Monday. This is typical of towns/villages in the area and many of the wine farms will also close or have restricted hours at weekends. Apart from that there are some nice wine farms in the area and a couple of good restaurants in or around Montague.
