The Breede River Valley, meaning “broad river” valley, is the perfect destination for city dwellers from Cape Town to escape the city.
It is the longest navigable river in the Western Cape and functions as a source of irrigation for the fruit and wine farms in the area.
Providing peace, tranquillity and natural splendours, the Breede River Valley is a getaway not to be missed. Easily reached from the big city, towns such as Robertson, McGregor, Ashton, Bonievale, Tulbagh and Montagu are popular destinations to visit in Breede River Valley, all of which exude their own charm and enthral to all who visit here.
The valley lies along the longest wine route in South Africa, Route 62 where some of South Africa’s top wines are produced, specifically Robertson’s hanepoot and muscadel dessert wines. The hot climate makes this region perfect for cultivating dessert wines. In addition to the many wine routes, this area is also home to a Brandy route that is not to be missed.
The Breede River runs past the Bontebok National Park where many locals and visitors alike indulge in the delights that rivers provide, specifically swimming, canoeing, river rafting, boating and angling. The river meets the sea in Witsand where whale-watching is at its best in summer.
Spectacular scenery of open landscapes and majestic mountains are enough to keep visitors entertained. Breede River Valley accommodation provides visitors with quintessential relaxation.
Whatever experience you are seeking, you can choose from a selection of Breede River accommodation types, ranging from homely guesthouses, bed and breakfasts and self-catering accommodation, to a more raw experience of camping and caravanning, the Breede River Valley has it all.
