You will find Greyton some 1½ hours from Cape Town in the Overberg. It is a small, peaceful and picturesque village at the foot of the majestic Sonderend mountain range. Here you will find original thatched cottages, characterful newer homes, tree lined streets and breathtaking mountain views. You will also find a surprisingly vibrant community life, think a Saturday market, a handful of good restaurants and a couple of interesting shops. We visited Greyton one weekend during winter, 2013.
