One-Off Feature

Finished in beautiful Cape sandstone, nestled high up in the Hout Bay valley on the wooded southern slopes of Table Mountain, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, lies the Tarragon. Boasting magnificent 360 degree panoramic valley and mountain views, her unique location offers peace and tranquillity supported by personal outdoor terraces, a large swimming pool, barbecue facilities and exquisite koi ponds.

General Info

Whether you want to soak up the ambience with a glass of wine after a lazy lunch, relax by the pool, or chill out on the double African hammock, The Tarragon is ideal. There are five cottages on site, each of which is self contained. All have fully equipped kitchens with Bosch dishwashers, microwaves and fridges. All bathrooms are finished in either travertine or slate and the bedrooms all have ample floor to ceiling fitted cupboards. There is wireless broadband internet, television with M-net and satellite transmission and digital telephones. The Tarragon is the perfect location from which to explore Cape Town and its Peninsula. The magnificent Chapmans Peak Drive, three beautiful, unspoilt beaches with magnificent views (Hout Bay, Sandy Bay and Llandudno) are all only five minutes away. The city centre and waterfront are a scenic twenty minutes drive, or in ten minutes you could be wine tasting at a Constantia wine estate.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Hout Bay with its mountains, forests, beaches and spectacular scenery is indeed a magical place and has been long considered the "Jewel of the Cape". At its centre is the bustling harbour - a great place for a stroll, buying the catch of the day for an evening braai/BBQ, or heading off on one of the many boat trips, game fishing, sunset cruises or a trip to seal island. Relax on the beach, or for the more energetic try one of the many watersports on offer such as canoeing, kayaking and surfing. Take a trip along Chapmans Peak Drive, regarded as one of the worlds most scenic drives. For nature lovers maybe follow one of the many hiking trails, go horse riding, whale watching if the season is right, or pop into the World of Birds. The township tour at Imizamu Yethu will give you a fascinating insight into township life and the warmth of the people.
