Breede Valley Accommodation

Surrounded by Magnificent Mountains

The Breede River Valley region of the Western Cape is a picturesque valley surrounded by magnificent high mountains North and South and is one of South Africa's finest fruit and wine producing areas. The Breede River rises in the mountains of the Boland and flows into the Indian Ocean at St Sebastion Bay. Its tributaries include some of the finest trout fishing streams in the Western Cape, including the Witels, Dwars and Hex rivers, the latter being famous for its rainbow trout. The valley has a host of fine restaurants and plenty of accommodation.

The town of Ceres in the Breede River Valley was founded in 1849 after the opening of Mitchell's Pass and is named after the Roman goddess of plenty. Ceres is probably the most important fruit producing region in South Africa. It is situated some 150 kilometres from Cape Town and can only be reached by mountain pass. Visitors once had to pay a road toll to pass through Mitchell's Pass, but the Toll House has now been converted into a tea room.

The beautiful little town of Tulbagh in the Breede River Valley sits beneath the mountains of the Groot Winterhoek Wilderness Area and is unique in that every single building on its Church Street has been declared a National Monument, including De Oude Drostdy. All 32 houses have been restored to their original condition after damage suffered from an earthquake in 1969. Tulbagh dates back to the days of Jan van Riebeeck. Activities in the area include trout fishing, horse-riding and 4x4 trails.

The town of Worcester is the main town of the Breede River Valley region of the Western Cape, and it lies on the main road from Cape Town to Johannesburg. The town has developed into the main commercial centre of the region and one of the largest and most important grape producing areas of the Western Cape. Worcester is well known for its schools for the blind and the deaf. The Karoo National Botanic Gardens offer the only true succulent garden in the Southern hemisphere.

Just a few kilometers down the valley from Worcester is the important wine producing town of Robertson, often referred to as the brandy capital of South Africa. As well as producing some of the Breede River Valley's best wines, Robertson houses some of the country's finest racing studs. The area boasts several fine hiking trails (see Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve) and a resort on the banks of the Breede River is a magnet to tourists and canoe trails are most popular with all equipment being provided. This is a very beautiful part of South Africa to visit and all manner of outdoor pastimes are catered for.

The Breede River Valley village of McGregor, originally known as Lady Grey, offers the best examples of 19th century Cape architecture with its end-gables, stable doors and thatched roofs. The Boesmanskloof Hiking Trail links McGregor with the nearby village of Greyton. The trail abounds with numerous species of flora and fauna including some rare examples of protea and heather. Hikers considering taking this trail should be warned that it can be extremely strenuous and even dangerous during winter months. A valid permit has to be carried at all times. The Limietberg Nature Reserve along the Du Toitskloof Pass is also a popular hiking route.

Just to the North of Swellendam lies the Breede River Valley's 11300 hectare Marloth Nature Reserve, which features impressive mountain scenery and a trail that passes through evergreen forests and cool valleys. The reserve is set in the Langeberg range of mountains features some breathtaking examples of wild gardenias and almonds as well as many examples of stinkwood and yellowwood. Wildlife includes leopard, baboon and several species of antelope. There is a large picnic site with overnight huts for hikers but no other facilities.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
