Lying in the fertile Villiersdorp Valley is a picturesque small town, Villiersdorp.
Much like Elgin and Grabouw, Villiersdorp is located in an area that produces South Africa’s best deciduous fruit as well as vegetables. While sitting just 90 km from Cape Town, Villiersdorp serves as an entrance to the Cape Winelands and the Worcester Wine Routes as it is just a 30minutes’s drive to Franschhoek. This makes it an ideal weekend getaway destination for wine lovers.
A great attraction in the Villiersdorp is the Theewaterskloof Dam that offers excellent opportunities for largemouth bass fishing. If you are visiting the town during the last week of November, be sure not to miss South Africa’s largest outdoor music festival that takes place at the dam.
If you are planning your next Winelands getaway, accommodation in Villiersdorp offers the best stay where you can enjoy your vacation comfortably. Villiersdorp accommodation is mainly offered in cozy guesthouses and quaint bed and breakfasts.
