Piketberg
Snuggled against the Piket Mountain lies Piketberg, an unexpected surprise to the adventurous tourist. An area of vast contrast and unexpected beauty, it traverses rugged mountains and sheltered, bountiful valleys. The beauty magnified by the unexpectedness of it all. Piketberg is nestled between rolling wheat fields, vineyards, fruit growing farms, wines and rich fynbos.
 
Piketberg is about an hour and fifteen minutes drive on the N7 from Cape Town and an hour's drive from the West Coast.  It stands alone in the middle of undulating fields of wheat, green vineyards, partly fallow land and flowering yellow canola.

The mountain range is unique as it stands as an island with Piketberg as its main town on its eastern slopes, the village of Aurora on the west and Redelinghuys to the north.  If one is looking for a quiet lifestyle then this is the place to explore.

The perfect way to view the whole town and surrounding areas is to take a trip up the Versveld pass to the top of the mountain where you will drive through acres comprising of apple, pear, peach and orange trees.  

On the way up you will have the scent of wild rosemary and will see many yellow Waboom and pink Nerifolia Proteas.  Drive further on and take a turn at Langeberg road and head west.  When you see a pine tree almost in front of the car, stop and look south.  On a clear day Table Mountain is in the distance!

You will not want to leave this beautiful area.  Spend a few days exploring and stay at one of the guesthouses.
