Greyton is located in the sleepy area of the Overberg between Cape Town and Caledon and is a picturesque village. At the foot of the Sonderend mountains, surrounded by old oaks, lies this village which could be so from the song of Wim Zonneveld. Reed-cut houses, shops, artists who find inspiration here, in short, a wonderful place far away from the bustle of the city to relax.

Here you can step into a garden magazine, in the lost charm of Country life. With beautifully overgrown gardens, numerous roses and fruit trees that form beautiful pictures with the cottages of the village.

Once you get here, you no longer need a car because Greyton is a village to explore on foot or by bike. The environment is fabulous and what could be better than sitting on the terrace with a delicious cup of coffee accompanied by a local, handmade chocolate and enjoying the view and the very friendly people who live here. Greyton is a popular place for those who love antiques and art, and the historic buildings such as the church and the old post house also attract countless day-trippers.

And when you have a good time to reflect, you might consider that you want to go out actively tomorrow. That is also possible! Greyton is an outdoor paradise for the mountain biker and the hiker. There are numerous routes from here for every athlete with or without experience. For example, there is the 1 or 2 day Boesmanskloof trail also known as the Greyton-Mc Gregor trail and the Noupoort Hike. You follow rivers and you will pass waterfalls and rock lakes, a beautiful setting for lovers of silence and nature! Rent a mountain bike here and go to the neighboring village of Genadendal, an old missionary village with a Dutch past

Greyton – as small as it is – has several restaurants and eateries from healthy to Haute Cuisine, so you will always find something to your liking here.
