The beautiful village of Greyton nestles between the majestic Riviersonderend mountain range and gently curving hills. This tranquil oasis of green lies between two rivers, with lush, colourful, country gardens that complement the thatched cottages and oak tree lined lanes.

Greyton was founded as an agricultural village by Sir Herbert Vigne in 1854, and named after the then Governor of the Cape, Sir George Grey, who assisted in the planning of the village. Many of the present-day hotels, guesthouses, restaurants and shops were original homesteads, and have been restored to retain their rustic charm.

The Greyton commonage, land left to the village of Greyton by Sir Herbert Vigne, and the 2,220ha Greyton Nature Reserve, with its rugged mountain slopes that rise, at their loftiest, to 1 565m above sea level, offer unforgettable walks through magnificent fynbos and wildflowers, especially during springtime when the wildflowers are in bloom, and hidden kloofs, with mountain streams, waterfalls and rock pools to explore.
