Klawer is a farmers’ settlement in the West Coast district of the Western Cape province, some 280 kilometers north of Cape Town. Located in the valley between Clanwilliam and Vredendal where a fresh ocean breeze blows over the vineyards, which ensures that wine is made with pride in an environment where you do not expect it.

Located at the Matzikamma Mountains, the Olifants River and the N7 on the way to Namibia, Klawer is the perfect stop-over for lovers of nature, space, flowers and outdoor life. But it is also centrally located in relation to Vredendal, Strandfontein, Lambert’s Bay, Clanwilliam and Vanrhynsdorp. It is a small area with its own unique face and lifestyle, which you can be a part of if you stay here.

Klawer is the African word for a type of wild clover that blooms exuberantly here after a refreshing rain shower. The landscape around Klawer is that of pristine fynbos and a diversity of citrus trees. In the direction of Namaqualand in the north, between August and September you will find the fields full of wild flowers that Klawer and its surroundings have become so famous for. And of course you also pay a visit to the Klawer Wine Cellar.

The area around Klawer is perfect for going out by 4×4 or going river rafting and of course you will find lots of hiking and walking routes in this beautiful nature. A place to get rid of all the stress and bustle of the city.
