About Keisie Cottages
William and Karin welcome you to Keisie Cottages, cosy farm holiday self-catering mountain cottages on a beautiful fruit and wine farm in the Keisie Valley, 20 km outside of Montagu. Our farm is just below the world famous tractor ride on Protea Farm.
Keisie means Pretty Water in San, and the Keisie Valley is renowned for the flavour and quality of its fruits and wines.
The farm is called Vredendal, which means Peace in the Valley and it certainly is very peaceful here. We grow grapes, quinces and gooseberries and in season you can pick and eat straight from the trees, or watch us harvesting.
We have a lovely swimming pool with a wooden deck and gazebo, surrounded by two hectares of roses .(SWIMMING POOL CLOSED DURING MONTHS OF JULY AND AUGUST 2019) Stroll around our herb garden and help yourself to herbs for your salad or potjiekos. Try our home made jams. A real farm stay close enough to Montagu to enjoy the Hot Springs and wine routes and wonderful restaurants that Montagu has to offer, as well.
There are lovely hikes, including a lovely hike to our rock pools (very rough) and paths that can be used for mountain biking. The mountain views are stunning.
We have TWO charming restored farm cottages, close to each other, Each cottage is a quaint, cosy environment with a traditional fireplace to ward off those chilly Cape winter nights. All linen provided.
The Keisie Valley is the perfect retreat. There is no cell phone reception and there are no TVs in the cottages. Towels are provided. Your chance to introduce your kids to the real world. They can hike, bike, or just play outside!
