Area Information:

Kootjie and Isa Viljoen, Catherien and the twins Danielle and Phillip live on this working farm, 9 km from the quaint and romantic village of Greyton.

Oewerzicht is a fully operational farm, harvesting apples and pears. The rest of the farm consists of rolling wheat lands, large flocks of sheep and if you are lucky, you'll also see a herd of Reebok roaming freely on the farm.

Birdwatchers will also be delighted to see, amongst other, blue cranes, secretary birds, and large flocks of guinea fowl.

Guests are welcome to hike the trails on the farm or bring mountain bikes along to enjoy the magnificent scenery through the orchards. Bikes can also be rented in the village.

Children will have a wonderful time on the farm with its stretch-out lawns, and guests are welcome to bring their well-behaved dogs (max 1 per cottage, or 2 small dogs, but only on arrangement). The owners' child-friendly Boxers, Katy and Anna, loves popping in and saying hello to guests visiting the farm.

It is a beautiful, quiet town where you can rest, reset and enjoy nature - but with really good coffee and great little shops :)
