The towns of Montagu, McGregor and Greyton form and almost perfectly straight line across the Breede River, and are connected by their artistic, leftfield and untouched nature.
With histories stretching back over 300 years, these three towns didn’t develop at the pace of their more famous neighbours and have therefore remained blissfully small-scale. Now populated by emigrees from Cape Town and Joburg looking for a slower pace of life in which to create, the vibe is hippy chic and down to earth.
Housed in white-washed, reed-ceilinged building in the wonderful, spirit-reviving gardens of Temenos, a retreat in McGregor, Trebaldi’s offers farm-to-fork style food along with full vegan and vegetarian menus. You’ll love the ambiance of the multiple convening spaces of this place.
We recommend staying at McGregor Country Cottages, a collection of cottages dotted across the town, all individually decorated and styled with big soft sofas and open plan interiors. Prices start at R890 and go up to R1 290 per night ($62 / £50 / €60)
