Western Cape DestinationsHermon, Swartland

Lying on the route between Wellington and Gouda, Hermon might be but a blip on the map but it is actually a little village that has been here since forever - families have lived here for generations. It is one of four towns that make up the Riebeek Valley now so popular with Capetonians.

Hermon lies just outside Riebeeck Kasteel, the town that has endeared itself as a weekend getaway, filled with foodie type venues and trendy delis and shops. The surrounds are a tapestry of vineyards, olive groves and fields of wheat, a number of the farms now offering luxury manor house type accommodation, and the town of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West serving as major drawcards to those in search of lunch venues or a morning of sanctuary away from Cape Town.

Beautiful mountains, olives, good food and an excellent wine route combine to make the magic of the area easily capable of entertaining one for a weekend or more.

Hermon is also a good base from which to explore the towns of Malmesbury and Wellington, both of which lie within easy reach. Wine and olive estates include Riebeek Cellars, Pulpit Rock Winery, Mullineux, Meerhof, Het Vlock Casteel and Kloovenburg.

There are also local projects worth visiting like the Riebeek Kasteel Community Garden Project, where locals have their own allotment vegetable gardens, the Steel Band Project run by David Wickham, and the Community Theatre. Two weekend markets - the Riebeek Kasteel Village Market, and the Riebeek West Fresh Funky Market are welcome respites, and make time to hike up the Kasteelberg which give you some incredible views over the Swartland.
