Relocating or investing in the platteland remains an option to consider seriously and a town not to be ignored is the beautiful Robertson situated in the Breede River Valley . Properties here are more affordable and a wide range of homes, from the golden oldies to the most hip and modern, are available. Equestrian farm, Wine farm, Guest farm, commercial property, you make the call.
When you linger at the Biggest Red Chair in Africa, at Rooiberg Winery, you are at the gateway of Route 62 the longest wine route in the world and you are about to enter the valley of Wine and Roses.

Wine tasting is a pastime that will guarantee a commitment to come back and try the Wine Cellars and Estates that could not be fitted into one weekend. Make sure to get a glimpse of Robertson’s own Royalty, the Four Cousins, when stopping at Van Loveren for a tasting or a scrumptious meal at Christina’s.
