Nestled in the heart of the Overberg, surrounded by the Riviersonderend mountain range, lies the country village of Greyton. Just off the N2, under two hours drive from Cape Town, this quaint village is the ideal weekend getaway and countryside holiday destination for visitors who enjoy a combination of old-world charm and modern conveniences.
Scorching summers are made for swimming in idyllic mountain pools whilst cold winters make it the ideal place to cosy up around the fire with a bottle of local red wine. Moderate spring and autumn months make strolls around the town’s beautiful tree-lined streets a visual feast.
Slow living is the order of the day with plenty of outdoor activities and pristine nature to explore. Wake up to fresh country air, beautiful mountain views, flowing rivers, and free-roaming horses for added charm.
EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS in Greyton’s beautiful natural surroundings. Stunning mountains and flowing rivers invite you to head out for a walk or hike on the trails in and around the nature reserve or take a splash in secret swimming spots.
QUAINT SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS are around every corner of the village. Discover something different with Greyton’s local eateries, coffee shops, boutique stores, and of course the famous Saturday morning market that showcases the very best local offerings.
DISCOVER GENADENDAL, the site of the oldest Moravian mission village in Africa, founded in 1738, just outside of Greyton. A visit to Die Werf and to see the beautifully preserved exhibits at the Genadendal Mission Museum is to take a journey back in time.
TRAIL RUNNING & MOUNTAIN BIKING draw adventure seekers to Greyton. Year-round activities set in the village’s surrounding mountains on well-maintained trails offer an unforgettable setting for adventure sports and events.
