I Love Napier Because …
Napier IS BEST KNOWN FOR the being the little arty town on the way to Arniston!
GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the biggest sundial in South Africa, at the Napier Muncipal Building.
THE BEST scenery PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT the top of the Grootberg.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO visit the beaches of Arniston or Struisbaai and enjoy the Elim Wine Route.
WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO visit JD Wine cellar and Napier Brewery.
I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS September, BECAUSE the fields are vibrant green and bright yellow with grasses and canola, and June when the Patat Festival takes place.
MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS Dave’s Country Kitchen.
FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST Rennessance.
MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Pascals, TRY THE oxtail stew.
BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM The Suntouched Inn.
MY FAVOURITE fishing SPOT IS Die Mond.
FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY The Suntouched Inn.
IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO Gunners.
Napier’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS The Red Windmill Farm Stall.
MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS go for sundowners on the Grootberg or do the 8km circular hike.
FOR SOME LIVE MUSIC, I LIKE TO GO TO The Suntouched Inn or Pascals.
TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO horse ride on the mountain or just stroll through the quaint village streets.
IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY mountain-biking along the farm roads or kite boarding and kayaking in Struibaai.
MY FAVOURITE HIKE IS the Grootberg, just behind the village.
MY FAVOURITE wine and gift SHOP IS Vindigo.
MY FAVOURITE sport WATCHING SPOT IS The Suntouched Inn or Gunners.
IF YOU’RE HERE IN June, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the Patatfees.
MY FAVOURITE GALLERY IS Riek Creative. CHECK OUT THE Functional Art Pieces.
MY FAVOURITE BUILDING IS the NG Church, FOR ITS grand clock tower watching over our village.
TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS the Toy Museum and Dragon Fly Goats Cheese Farm.
BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS a walk to the Arniston Cave at low tide.
WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO indulgence in a long lunch at the Black Oyster Catcher Wine Estate.
THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS the amazing collection of farm animals that live within the village.
MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS The Pat Busch Private Nature Reserve outside Robertson.
WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I support the ladies of the Agri Dwala Project.
I Love Napier BECAUSE it’s close enough to Cape Town, yet really away from it all. True country relaxation.
The Suntouched Inn
Offering unique Bed & Breakfast style accommodation in the tranquil country village of Napier, The Suntouched Inn Guest House, Restaurant and Gallery is the ideal base from which to explore the Cape Overberg region. The Suntouched Inn is truly a place to relax, feel at home, yet away from it all, less than two hours drive from Cape Town, and only 30 minutes to the beautiful beaches of Arniston, Struisbaai, Cape Agulhas. Hermanus is 40 minutes drive away. Our local activities include horse riding, hiking, mountain biking, or just sitting on the verandah and watching the country life roll by.
