A short drive along the N7 highway, less than two hours from Cape Town, lies the beautiful town of Piketberg, which is nestled at the foot of the Piketberg Mountain range and surrounded by a tapestry of wheat fields, vineyards, fruit farms and indigenous fynbos.

This historic village, which was established in 1836 and named after the impressive mountain that it clings to, is now booming as more-and-more people are drawn to its many attractions and its close proximity to the city.

Visitors frequent Piketberg to enjoy – amongst many other things – the stunning natural surrounds, the abundant outdoor activities, good food, good wine, attractive architecture (with the old town featuring gorgeously restored cottages as well as the imposing neo-gothic style Dutch Reformed Church), warm country hospitality and rich heritage.

For the cultural traveller, the area offers a variety of mission stations (Moravia, Goedverwacht and Genadenberg) as well as some good historical opportunities. The area boasts one of the largest lakes in the country and one of the few coastal fresh water lakes in South Africa. Verlorenvlei, which lies between the coastal town of Elands Bay and Redelinghuys has been declared a RAMSAR site. Discover the mystique of the wines and champagne of the region at a local wine tasting or indulge in the outstanding arts of internationally acclaimed local artists.
