The twin towns of Riebeek West and Riebeek Kasteel nestle against the imposing Kasteelberg amongst vineyards and olive groves.
The area is well known for excellent wine and award winning olives and oil. Visitors can taste these on several farms in the valley.
Excellent restaurants, original art from resident artists, fascinating shops and markets are a few of the local attractions on offer.
Ask your hosts about this and also about the many and varied day trips that are possible with De Langenhof as your base.
