Greyton

The charm of this town is immediately evident upon driving down the narrow streets. The cottages which line the roads were built by semi-skilled labourers when Greyton was first established as a little agricultural village some 150 years ago.

It is an artists mecca, with its many trees and country ambience. Horses and oxen still draw ploughs and cars share the roads with donkey carts.
Just under an hours drive from Cape Town, Greyton is an ideal weekend getaway.

There are many activities, including birdwatching, canoeing, fishing, hiking, mountain biking and river-rafting. For the more adventurous, there are also 4 x 4 trails. A great way to see the surrounds is on one of the horse-riding trails on offer. There is a choice for beginners  which is through the open grasslands, or a route which takes you along a rugged path over the winding hills. Needless to say, the views are breathtaking!

Taking a walk through the village  you might see the occasional pear, avocado or apple tree and many little coffee shops, restaurants and galleries. On Saturdays there is a local farmer's market between 10am and 12am.
