Galenia is a guest farm situated on the beautiful slopes of the Langeberg Mountains near to Montagu. Here you will experience beauty, tranquility and comfort; perfect for nature lovers, relaxing getaways or a romantic weekend. It offers 450 ha of abundant indigenous flora. Galenia Estate is ideally located just two hours from Cape Town on the scenic Route 62 between Montagu and Barrydale, 3km from the village of Montagu.

The main focus of the property is the ‘Estate House’ which in fact was a renovation of one of the original barns on the estate. Its contemporary Cape Dutch design incorporates many of the features of a typical ‘lang skuur’ with a ceiling of whole tree trunks, gables with windows and a deep ‘stoep’ overlooking the estate.

Set out as a spacious and comfortable sitting room with accompanying glass - enclosed dining stoep the main house is the hospitality centre of the estate where guests can ‘feel at home’ whilst being cared for by our willing, friendly and well trained ‘host family’.

The five luxury cottages offer 10 spacious on-suite guest rooms. Each has their own fireplace, bathroom with Victorian bathtub as well as an outside shower. The ceilings are open reed and lie under thatched roofing. From the veranda or shower, guests have a spectacular view of the Karoo Koppies, Waboomberg Mountains and olive groves.
