Geography and History

Riebeek Kasteel is in the Riebeek Valley on the slopes of the Kasteelberg (Castle) Mountain, a 946m high solitary rock of Table Mountain sandstone.

Riebeek Kasteel is one of the oldest towns in South Africa, situated at 80 km from Cape Town. Farmers established themselves in this valley and during 1900 the town was laid out around its existing church. The town eventually developed and today it has +/- 2700 residents including some of South Africa’s most famous painters who are attracted by the picturesque surroundings of the valley.

Accommodation

Riebeek Kasteel has a variety of accommodation options available from Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfasts to Self-catering units.

Activities

Visitors should come during the Olive Festival in May, Shiraz and Art Weekend in October or the annual Med Fest in March - celebrating the wine, olives, food and culture of the area. These are some of only a few activities to do in and around this town.

It is believed to be one of the oldest villages in South Africa and indeed one could easily mistake the town and its accompanying valley for one set in the midst of the Tuscan hills of Italy, bathed as it invariably is in sunshine, particularly as it is almost equally as famous for its olives and Shiraz red wines.

There are many restaurants on offer to suit every visitors budget.  There is a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs to choose from!

This town has a thriving business community and provides a wide range of goods and services to its residents as well as surrounding communities.
