“acorns falling”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

6 of us stayed in cottage number 1, Marisha could not have been more helpful; unfortunately we went in acorn falling time and had very unseasonal high winds which caused the acorn to fall on the tin roof and made sleep time a bit trying. But it was a lovely venue and setting

“Best of the country life”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My husband wanted to get a break from the rat race and asked that I book somewhere on a farm, at the same time the daddy's deals voucher came up for Mont Rouge and I immediately booked it.

We stayed in cottage 4 which is a 6 sleeper, however it was only my husband and I with our 2 toddler boys. Check in time is at 14:00 so we didn't rush to get done and ended up at the farm just before 14:00, when we picked up our key we were greeted by friendly Marisha who just took a fresh warm bread out of the oven for us. I could not thank her enough little did I know what's awaiting us at the cottage :-)

They had fresh fruit picked from the farm on the table with home made jam and fresh muffins, fresh 5L water and even 4 easter marshmallows in a little jar, the kids were excited cause we said aunty Marisha put it especially there for them.

Everything about the place makes you feel at home, I think the little touches of the sweet surprises makes it even more cosy, the nice leather couches which the kids fell asleep on at night made it even more perfect and all the cute scatter cushions in every room.

The cottage has an indoor braai area and an outside bond fire area with steps leading right to it from the cottage. It has a little stream flowing right next to the cottage with an outside shower that my 4 year old boy could not stop talking about.

The WiFi isn't that stable I would say, it loses signal every now and again but once it is connected it is quite fast. I suggest that when you braai inside to leave the windows and door open and have the fans on for the hours after your braai because the smell of braai stays in the cottage, that is normal I think and with a country side holiday it should be the least of your worries.

They have even bigger cottages catering for big families and a wedding venue on site. We never got to the dam probably cause we got lost on our way but we ended up discovering a big lawn with a park that the kids enjoyed.

This is a MUST see farm if you are in Tulbagh and want peace from the hustle and bustle. Marisha is the most amazing host and even text me the morning to apologise because she couldn't say bye when we dropped the key. My boy woke up this morning asking when we going back, that in itself should say a lot :-)

“Wonderful and magical place”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had a wonderful time.
Mont Rouge is situated at the end of the Tulbagh valley. The cottages are situated beautifully amongst the fruit orchards and next to a stream. There is a big lawn area for the kids to play and 2 great dams just 10 min walk from the cottages where you can swim.

I definitely want to go back and explore the area on our MTBikes.

“Nice but not perfect, though expensive”
Reviewed 6 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in the honey moon cottage right next to the beautiful orchard. All in all a nice little cottage in a great, quite location. The facilities were okay, but not excellent.

Downsides were the missing AC (we had almost 40C that week) and the dubious WIFI (one has to register via Facebook - in theory: not one of our three devices were able to even connect to the access point and the owner wasn't able to help). For the price asked we would expect both an AC as well as WIFI that simply works.

With the little things it was the same. The bread that was waiting for us was several days old, no fresh but dried flowers and the jug of milk was just enough for the evening tea of the first day. That sounded more promising when we ordered those things in advance. The potential is there, but not enough value for the price asked.
