  Luxury at Tarentaal
(South Africa)   A.S.G. 04 September 2013
Tulbagh is not quite Tennyson’s ’Avilion, where falls not hail, or rain, or any snow, nor ever wind blows loudly‘ for, in the four days my wife and I were there in a stormy, early Spring, except for the hail we had it all. But from the comfort of the Villa Tarentaal we were able to enjoy the lovely countryside around, to which was added a magnificent view of the Winterberg Mountains mantled with snow. Meanwhile we had all the warmth we needed in our air-conditioned bedroom with its large log fire, and we luxuriated in the linen sheets, downy pillows and soft coverings of our bed. Our well-stocked fridge and miniature pantry lacked nothing necessary, and the massive bath, two wash-basins and dual shower in the Peacock suite’s roomy bathroom, with its abundance of fluffy towels, added to our sense of luxury and well-being. To crown it all, in the morning exactly at the time we had specified, our chosen breakfast was beautifully served in our bedroom, a magnificent start to each day. The welcome and kindness we received from our hosts, Graham and Brandi and their staff, was beyond all expectation. They were a fund of information about the district and about the restaurants we might choose - and they would book - for our evening meals. The experience of Tarentaal is something we long to enjoy again, and without reservation we enthusiastically recommend it to our friends.

  Villa Tarantaal
(South Africa)   Mrs Baker 09 August 2013
We got everything we hoped for, and more, from our two night stay in Blue Crane Cottage at Villa Tarantaal in Tulbagh and have come away rested - in spite of having fully explored the scenic Tulbagh/Ceres area and visiting most of the wine farms. The cottage overlooked the garden and mountains so it was a feast for the eyes, it was extremely well equipped and comfortable and the breakfasts certainly lived up to their reputation. The hosts, Brandi and Graham, and their staff certainly make visitors most welcome and I would highly recommend a visit to this establishment to everyone.
