About

Perhaps due to its inland location and proximity to more popular holiday spots, the village of Napier rarely features on the traveller’s itinerary. Peace Valley has capitalised on this, creating a haven of luxurious tranquillity on a scenic countryside property.

The guesthouse aims to give visitors a wonderful place to destress from city life or enjoy a wellness break complete with massages, facials and reflexology treatments, and is equally well-suited for travellers looking for a hidden gem a little off the beaten path. With only three rooms on offer, accommodating a maximum of eight guests, the experience at Peace Valley is exclusive and highly personalised.

Decorated with country furniture and splashes of Africa, the Front Room accommodates two guests in a spacious room with a King-size bed, and has a large balcony where guests can fully appreciate the pastoral views and watch the water birds or resident Labradors splashing around in the dams. The modern en-suite bathroom has a shower.

The Blue Room has a choice of King-size or twin beds, and not inappropriately (considering that the ocean is only half an hour away) has a colour scheme and artwork that creates a tranquil seaside feel.   

Located in the loft, the family unit has a large bedroom with a King-size or twin beds, and the spacious lounge also houses two single beds. In keeping with the guesthouse’s emphasis on comfort, each room has 100% percale linen, fluffy white towels, personal toiletries, a television, tea- and coffee-making facilities and a hair dryer.

For large families or guests looking for a private self-catering holiday, the entire house can be booked out. This gives guests exclusive use of an immaculate modern country kitchen, equipped with a comprehensive range of equipment, as well as a dining room and laundry facilities.

Offering massages and therapies, Peace Valley is an ideal location for a wellness retreat, and health-conscious bed-and-breakfast guests will appreciate the wholesome breakfast of crunchy muesli and cereals, yoghurts, seasonal fruits, fresh juices, fresh farm breads, cheeses, preserves and croissants. Other guest facilities at Peace Valley include a swimming pool, sun loungers, sun umbrellas, braai facilities and a large entertainment area with loungers.

The property is secured by remote-controlled gates and fencing, and you will receive a gate remote with your keys, which gives you the freedom to explore the area’s attractions at your leisure.

Napier is a delightful little country town steeped in history and has a multitude of quaint shops selling some items that could not be found anywhere else. Meals and refreshments can be enjoyed in a handful of trendy restaurants and pubs, where you have a good chance of hearing some interesting tales from the charismatic local people. Visit the surrounding farms or farm stalls to pick up some delicious local produce.

Day-trippers can head to the seaside for a day at Hermanus, Cape Agulhas, Struisbaai or Arniston, or take a trip to the delightful arts and missionary village of Elim. The Overberg has many other attractions worth exploring, including wine estates, golf courses and game reserves.

Overberg

Western Cape

About

The Overberg is a region that’s easy on the senses and pleasing to the eye. Its landscape is a tapestry of colours and meandering patterns, both natural and manmade. 

The region forms a relatively small part of the Western Cape; it is mostly rural, and is blessed with stunning scenery and unique highlights. Its largest town, Hermanus, is said to provide the best land-based whale watching in the world. It also has exquisite beaches, including the blue flag Grotto Beach, and the nearby Hemel-en-Aarde Valley epitomises the majestic beauty of the region.

Across Walker Bay, the towns of Gansbaai and Kleinbaai are best known for shark cage diving to see great whites at the hotspot near Dyer Island.

L’Agulhas stands at the southernmost point on the African continent, and is the meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

The Overberg fauna and flora is protected in the Bontebok National Park, and its nature reserves include De Hoop, De Mond, Salmons Dam, Marloth, and the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. Staying with wildlife, the penguin colony at Stony Point in Betty’s Bay is also a tourist favourite.

Swellendam and the small mission towns of Genadendal and Elim are amongst the Overberg’s historic icons. Others that are popular with visitors are Greyton, Stanford, and Napier.

In summer the farmlands are dominated by shimmering shades of brown, the fields stripped of their winter crops and the bare earth ploughed into meandering combed patterns dotted with tightly compressed wheels of straw awaiting collection. Labourers’ cottages hunker down beneath old blue gums and on a cold day smoke drifts from their chimneys.

Throughout the year the early morning and late afternoon sun accentuates the sensual curves of the ridges wreathed in fynbos. When the winter rains return, the undulating, sometimes tiered fields shrug off their brown and slip into the vibrant greens of wheat, barley, and oats, and the brilliant yellow of the iconic canola. On still, sultry mornings, blue cranes, South Africa’s national bird, float overhead craaaaaaking as they go.

The coastline is punctuated by long sweeping bays and rocky outcrops that fringe the southern boundary of this landscape. Here one can spend hours sitting on the white sand, being mesmerised by the eternal activity of the sea.

Add to this a scattering of charming inland villages; locally produced beer, cheese, and wine; lighthouses, bird watching, and wonderful food, and it becomes evident why one needs plenty of time here.

Look out for

Southern-most tip of Africa - at L’Agulhas, which is also the official meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. 

Shark cage diving - near Gansbaai there are several operators who do trips daily out to the Great Whites’ favourite hunting grounds near Dyer Island. 

Whale watching - the Overberg offers great land-based and boat-based whale watching (best between July and November). 

Beaches - the Overberg beaches are amongst the finest in South Africa. They include the longest beach in the southern hemisphere - at 14km - which curves along the coast at Struisbaai. 

Swellendam - is the third-oldest magisterial district in South Africa. At the base of the Langeberg Mountains on the N2 highway the town has an array of historic buildings including the Drostdy Museum.

Hermanus - On the coast in the west of the region. It is the largest town in the Overberg and popular with visitors all year round. It’s especially well known for its superb land-based whale watching.

Hemel-en-Aarde Valley - near Hermanus - this scenic area produces a range of wines and is known for its Pinot Noir.

Bontebok National Park - The smallest of South Africa’s National Parks, it not only protects the fauna within its boundaries but also endangered flora in the fynbos biome. In addition to the bontebok, the park is also home to Cape mountain zebra, red hartebeest, grey rhebuck, and Cape grysbok as well as 200 bird species. There are hiking and mountain-biking trails and fishing and swimming in the Breede River. The accommodation and campsite are situated at Lang Elsie’s Kraal amongst a riverine thicket of trees and aloes near the banks of the Breede River. This consists of 10 self-catering chalets with wheel chair access, and caravan and camping sites. There are also picnic spots with braai and ablution facilities for day visitors.

De Hoop Nature Reserve - Each year between June and November whales return to the rugged coastline of this 34 000 hectare reserve near Bredasdorp to breed. During this time the marine reserve supports 40% of the world’s Southern Right whale population. Although these may be the drawcard for many visitors there is much more in the line of nature-based activities for the visitor. Lowland fynbos is the dominant vegetation throughout the reserve and this supports bontebok, Cape mountain zebra, grey rhebuck, eland, and baboon, as well as many smaller mammals. It’s a great destination for ‘twitchers’, with the De Hoop vlei attracting a large number of water birds and pushing the recorded species to an impressive total of 260. Besides being able to walk anywhere in the reserve there are several day hikes and the popular 5-day whale trail. Accommodation options are varied from cottages and rondawels to restored houses and neat camping and caravan sites amongst the milkwood trees. Most accommodation is around what is known as Die Opstal near the fresh water vlei and park reception.

Wines - The region has some top class wineries that offer tasting and sales.
