In 2003 we (Joop & Micky) took the plunge and left behind a busy and often grey and rainy Holland and found a new home in South Africa, in Montagu, the ❤ of Route 62.
Montagu is ideally situated on the legendary Route 62, winding through the Breede River Valley, halfway between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn and was voted “Best Town in South Africa in 2012. It is a small agricultural town, surrounded by magnificent mountains.
Famous for walking, hiking and rock-climbing. Well known for fruit and wine farming. Time seems to go a bit slower, life is easy, people are friendly and welcoming.
