Darling is a quaint little town just over an hour's drive from Cape Town and well-known as the home of 'Evita se Perron', the popular theatre and signature landmark of long-time resident Pieter Dirk Uys that combines a restaurant with a little cabaret theatre.
Darling is a thriving agricultural centre for a wide range of agricultural products. The town predominantly serves the surrounding farms and is a popular tourist attraction for those looking for a laid-back getaway or day trip.
The Swartland area of the Western Cape is renowned for its wheat and rooibos production. The area lies between Malmesbury in the south, across the Riebeek Valley to Piketberg in the north and Darling in the west to the Oliphants Mountain at Porterville in the east.
The name Swartland is derived from the Renosterbos, an indigenous plant of the area which turns black in the warm, dry summers.
The area is picturesque and fertile with undulating wheat fields, vineyards and deep river valleys and mountains landscapes which are any photographer's dream. The Swartland Wine and Olive Route forms part of the many tourist attractions of the Cape and offers a number of cellars for wine tastings including Allesverloren, Kloovenburg, Riebeek Cellars, Swartland Winery and more.
