Lying in between some of the Cape’s most dizzying mountain passes, this is Apple and Adventure country. So keep the doctor away with an apple a day, hit a single track under pedal power or negotiate the bends with the windows wide open and singing loudly. Oh, the hills are alive…

Grabouw holds an annual festival at the country club with some of the most incredible views over the Eikenhof dam. Every year, thousands of visitors descend on the town to sample the flowers, fruit, wines and local products.

Budget travellers must stop in at the enchanting Oude Molen Brandy Distillery for an exceptional, historic brandy experience. Local delicacies such as fruits in brandy, brandy marmalade, brandy truffles and brandy fruit cakes are for sale in the distillery's speciality shop where you will also find a selection of Oude Molen memorabilia.

Another must is the Houw Hoek Farm Stall. This delightful farm stall shows off authentic South African architecture and boasts long standing success as a landmark grocer, deli, bakery, wine boutique and coffee shop.

Grabouw is not far from the coastal towns of Gordon’s Bay, Kleinmond and Hermanus, and Strand and Somerset West are only a short drive away.

Pippins backpackers is situated in the heart of apple growing country and provides accommodation ranging from camping and dorms to swanky en suites. Visit nearby wineries, fish and swim in the dams, go horse riding, mountain biking and hiking before bedding down at Pippins.
