Gorgeous Greyton – Photographs

Send to Kindle

The gorgeous village of Greyton, located in the Cape Overberg and surrounded by farmlands and the Riviersondered Mountains is a very manageable 90 minute drive from Cape Town and is just perfect for a weekend getaway.  The village has a number of super restaurants and delis so a decent coffee and a loaf of artisan bread is easy to find … if that is what you are looking for.  The Greyton Market takes place every Saturday from 10am to midday; thing to try would be the lemon curd pancakes, the homemade lemonade, the heavy with meat pies, the pestos – actually the list is endless.

The oak lined streets, beautifully restored cottages and pretty gardens make Greyton picture perfect. There is loads to do; from walking or cycling in the mountains, ambling the streets, eating at the many eateries, hiking to McGregor, visiting historical buildings or hunting for antiques – the list is endless.  Or of course you can just relax in the sunshine and enjoy the views!

About 

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!
