Tanagra: Gumtree Apartment

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

Tanagra sits on a 78 000-hectare wine farm at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountains. Surrounded by vineyards, indigenous fynbos and mountains, it adjoins the Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve and is just a few kilometres from the country town of McGregor. The farm produces handcrafted wines and stylish grappa and eau de vie, and offers comfortable accommodation in six self-catering units. Most are located around the old historical Tanagra homestead (built in 1862 and shaded by a wild fig tree) and the boutique wine cellar, but Hill Cottage and Faraway are set in seclusion on isolated spots on the farm.


Bottlebrush and Gumtree are two charming open-plan apartments (each 40sqm in size) that are part of the large guest wing attached to the historic homestead. They are let individually or together. They have private entrances and stoeps and stunning views of the surrounding mountain. Guest share a private part of the garden, with each apartment having its own private braai place and deck chairs in the garden.
