Nestled between the spectacular Simonsberg and Drakenstein mountains with their numerous streams and dramatic cliffs. Just fifteen minutes outside Stellenbosch many time over Cape Epic overnight stage race finish is just another reason why the area has become a world renowned mountain biking destination.

The first farms were allocated before the end of 1679 and the village was formally established in 1685. Salut!
