Take a deep breath, smell the roses and stroll straight into a nineteenth-century watercolour painting. Light blues and greens are accentuated by white-washed houses with thatched roofs, rambling gardens and long, winding roads.
Welcome to McGregor, the village that time forgot. Not only is this town one of the Western Cape’s best-kept secrets, but it’s also the perfect fusion of country living and nature.
Uncorrupted by commercialism, old and new merge together, creating an authentic village feel. Here you will definitely not find chain stores and fast-food places. Instead, quaint bespoke shops, delis, and country restaurants line the streets. Even the old South African tradition of the café corner shop is still thriving where you can find anything from a pin to a pumpkin – when in season of course! Life here is slow and easy and time is measured the old-fashioned way – by church bell. And don’t forget your early morning call, courtesy of your friendly neighbourhood rooster.
