Breeriver, Breede River Valley

You will have to take my word for it. There is a little dorpie (wee village) in the Breede River Valley called Breeriver. It lies part way between Worcester and Ceres close to the Breede River, which to add to all the confusion, is also known as the Bree River.

The valley gets its name rather obviously from the Breede River, which courses through it, running in a west to east direction. In the valley are the towns of Tulbagh, Wolseley, Worcester, Rawsonville, Robertson, and Swellendam.

And of course, the wee town of Breeriver, although you won't find it on Google maps. The Breede River Valley is not only one of the most beautiful and accessible to Capetonians, but it is also the largest fruit and wine producing valley in the Western Cape, which means the communities here are mainly farmers. Most of the accommodation of the region is farm stays, and the outdoors activities available are many and variable.

The breathtaking views of the valley alone are worth a stay in a little place like Breeriver. Mountains, mountains and more mountains interwoven with grapevines, fruit orchards and indigenous fynbos make this a valley close to heaven.

Fifty or so wine estates make the valley their home, and the town lies close enough to the famous Route 62, the longest wine route in the world, to make driving portions of this as a day trip entirely possible. But you might find that you are spoilt for choice when staying in Breeriver, and visits to the towns of Tulbagh, Ceres, Worcester and a drive along the historic Bainskloof Pass will be enough to keep you more than entertained.
