Grabouw lies in the Elgin Valley close to the Cape Town metro and the area is regarded as the gateway to the Overberg. The valley boasts some of the most beautiful scenery with stretches of fynbos and pine forests, orchards and vineyards wedged between the Groenland and Kogelberg Mountains.
It borders the Kogelberg Biosphere reserve, a protected area of magnificent fynbos. There is also plenty of water in the area with the Palmiet River flowing through the valley. The Steenbras Dam, Cape Town's main water source is also located in the valley.
Rooted firmly in agriculture, the valley is famed for its fruit farms and is the home of the world famous Appletiser brand. Like most of the Cape, its Mediterranean climate makes it ideal for viticulture and the valley has a growing reputation for wine and olive production. The Elgin Valley Wine Route offers well-known wineries such as Paul Cluver Wines along with a number of open-air festivals, events and markets aimed at attracting visitors.
Tourism to the area is growing and it now boasts some of the best mountain biking trails in the country. Another attraction is the Elgin Grabouw Country Club that overlooks the Eikenhof dam and surrounding mountains, a gathering place for locals and visitors alike.
Grabouw is a mere hour's drive from the City of Cape Town, 65 km from Cape Town International and just 25 km from Somerset Mall.
