Riebeek Kasteel

"I fell in love. An enchanting stage set of vineyards, olive groves, wheat fields and shimmering dams, the Riebeek Valley rolls out towards double layered mountains.

Property agents are calling it the new Franschoek. People want to live here. Buyers are drawn by the scenic beauty, being in a wine-growing region, good schools and the proximity to Tulbagh, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Cape Town.

Children ride their bicycles around the village and know all their neighbours. Investors are stepping in. (...)

There's some magic here. It's beautiful, there's very little crime and the community spirit is excellent. This area has huge international potential. For many the very absence of tourists is what gives the Valley its delectable flavour.”
