Montagu, with its long tree lined streets and white washed Cape Dutch houses, is only 2 hours drive from Cape Town. Set in a fertile valley the area has thrived on its wine and local production of apples and pears. This peaceful town is steeped in history and is known for its historic homes. By taking a stroll down Long Street with its old buildings, 14 of which are national monuments, it is easy to imagine what life was like in the early settlement.
