I Love Napier Because …

Send to Kindle
I ♥ Napier

I ♥ Napier

Hi, I’m Craigan Millar from The Suntouched Inn in Napier.

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 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.

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.
