Les Hauts de Montagu
As from 30th April 2016 the estate and four star, bed and breakfast Guest Lodge known as Les Hauts de Montagu will close for business. The property will undergo a four month programme of refurbishment and renovation reopening on 1st September 2016 with a new name – Galenia -and an enhanced style of hospitality product.
The Galenia Estate, named for the Galenia africana species of fynbos to be found there, is thought to be more easily pronounced by the majority of visitors, and the local community, and to emphasise the focus of the estate on the preservation of the natural environment to be found there. The new Galenia hospitality product lifts the property from its previous bed and breakfast category by offering lunches and dinners to its resident guests and also to increase the interaction between the guests and the natural unspoilt beauty of the estate itself.
The Galenia experience combines the natural beauty of this 1300 acre (550 hectare) estate, with its private and peaceful setting sheltered by the majestic Langeberg Mountains and enjoying magnificent views, with a hospitality offering that is designed to complement and connect to the surroundings, providing a caring and comfortable base from which guests can explore the estate and the neighbouring attractions of the Robertson wine valley and the Klein Karoo.
