When the Greeks invented the Olympic Games, they didn’t intend for it to be a daytoday event. However with a hundredmeter sprint just to catch the train in the morning or goldmedal weightlifting efforts whenever you need to go shopping for groceries, just walking the streets can be like taking part in the Pentathlon. Throw in the towel for a while with a two night stay for up to four people in a Golden Terrace Chalet at Montagu Springs Holiday Resort for R952. A two hour drive along Cape Town’s longest wineroute, Route 62, will bring you right to the gate of the Little Karoo – the type of Eden you usually only see on postcards signed ‘Wish you were here’. In less time than it would take to make glutenfree, nondairy evaporated milk, you could be kicking back at one of the awardwinning pools at Montagu Springs Holiday Resort. Wake up to the smells of the nearby peach and plum orchards instead of petrol fumes and the refreshing scent of the nearby mineral hotsprings instead of the seafoodcurry your neighbour cooked last night. Experience the kind of the life that would make a Norman Rockwell painting jealous and have a picnic next to the Keisie River that runs through the entire resort, or visit one of the miniature waterfalls. Those who have no problem with ornithophobia can feed the 40 species of birds that call the resort home while those who do fear these feathered creatures can spend the day biking around the vineyards on an Italian pedalcar. If while you’re there you find yourself humming “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”, you might be interested in taking the onehour stroll with your Sweetheart through the mountains and over the river to Montagu, aptly named the Lovers Walk. If your heart still yearns for the athleticism of city life, there’s always a game of tennis on one of the three tennis courts to pass the time. When you return to your Cape Dutch style chalet on the edge of the orchards, relax on the large patio and take in the stunning views, or you embrace your ProudlySouth African side and have a braai in your own private braai patio. The perfect combination of home and away, Montagu a fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms and a lounge with a fireplace combined with everything you’d expect from a luxury resort. Hotel Fact In ancient Mesopotamia, being assigned to work in the Begitu Mudah Tertip – what we’d call a hotel – was considered to be the highest honour anyone could achieve in life.
