A summers day at Villa Augusta, Riebeek Kasteel

Riebeek Kasteel is a small town 87km from Cape Town, known for its wine, wheat and olives. Many artists have moved to this quaint town, attracted by the picturesque surroundings. Take a stroll around the town centre (a quick 5 minute walk from Villa Augusta), pop into some of the galleries, craft and gift shops, have a G&T at the Royal Hotel or a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. There are also some great wine farms in the area, so be sure to check those out too!
