Tanagra: Hill Cottage

  • 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.


Hill Cottage is a dinky little hideaway set alone on a hill, surrounded by fynbos and overlooking vineyards, valleys and mountains. Decorated in earthy tones, it has a rustic-chic appeal and everything you need for a romantic country escape – including privacy, tranquillity, connection to nature and modern comforts.
