Deep in the Langeberg mountains faraway from the hustle and bustle of city life, you will find Simonskloof Mountain Retreat, situated 50 km from Montagu in the Western Cape, only a 2½ hour drive from Cape Town. 

Simplicity, sustainability and eco-friendliness. Accommodation includes three off the grid, solar power-equipped, self-catering cottages and 8 individual campsites. Bed & Breakfast is available, with dinner options; unique African-Swiss meals, prepared on the open fire and served by candlelight. The morning air is filled with the aroma of freshly-ground coffee, wood fire baked bread and the chant of the birds will provide a perfect start for an enjoyable day out in the mountains

Rest, relax and recharge your weary soul in this peaceful and remote valley. Alternatively engage in some of the outdoor activities on offer, such as wilderness trekking and hiking, mountain biking and abseiling or kloofing (canyoneering).

We had a fantastic time - our cottage was in an incredible location and provided everything you needed - An absolute Gem! It was obvious that the owners had taken a great deal of time and energy on making it a very special place indeed. We will definitely be back!
