The Heart of Wine Country

With at least 40 wineries within a 20 minute drive of Osoyoos, wine-lovers can experience exceptional dining, lively atmosphere, and ample entertainment on a whim. In addition to tastings and tours, wineries in the area have been known to host culinary classes and concerts on their venues for the community to enjoy.

Bang for Your Buck

Compared to major cities like Vancouver (where the market is overheated and unapproachable), properties in the South Okanagan can be obtained at a relative steal. At The Cottages, detached homes start at under $400,000, with lake-front properties starting at just over $730,000.
