The district of which Grabouw is the centre is better known as the Elgin Valley, internationally known as the place in South Africa 'where the apples come from'. At present, the Elgin Valley produces 65 % of South Africa's export apples, resulting as one of the richest fruit growing regions in South Africa.

The Elgin Valley borders the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, a protected area of magnificent fynbos. More than 1600 plant species occur here, of which 150 are endemic. Also known as a forest town with its pine plantations, the pristine environment of Grabouw / Elgin Valley offers a rich and varied experience to visitors.

Travelling along the N2 highway from Somerset West the road soon climbs the heights via Sir Lowry's Pass before descending through the pleasant countryside of the Elgin Valley. Orchard Farm Stall & Coffee Shop is the first farm stall along the N2 to stop for refreshment. Peregrine Farm Stall & Farmer's Grill is the next stop, situated next to the Viljoenshoop Road that leads to Duncan's Roses, Applewaith Farm, Oak Valley Flowers and Windermere Apple Cider. Peregrine is famous across the land for excellent home-made biltong and a variety of traditional South African treats prepared in their bakery and Food Bar.

Viljoenshoop Road is a scenic delight. It meanders through fruit orchards and past labourer's cottages. Follow the road until you see the turn-off to Duncan's Roses on your right. Duncan's Roses has the most spectacular rose-garden, displaying various different roses in all colours of the rainbow. It is a magnificent setting for taking awesome pictures. Please take care not to pick any roses. Following the Viljoenshoop Road back towards the N2, you will see the turn-off to Windermere. Windermere pure apple cider is made in a traditional way from fresh apples, containing no preservatives or additives. It is similar to the German 'Apfel Wein' and is a pleasant thirst quenching drink. Cider tasting is available to visitors.

Returning towards the N2 from Windermere, turn right onto the N2 highway and drive until you see the turn-off to De Rust Estate on your left. Paul Cluver Estate has everything in one - cool climate wines, a forest amphitheatre and an elegant Guest House. Enjoy continental breakfasts, a quiet afternoon's relaxation in the small library or enjoy a picnic on the estate.

From De Rust Estate turn left, travel along the N2 until you see Houw Hoek Farmstall on your right. Here you will find farm fresh produce, a lovely coffee shop set in the majestic mountains with good service and the most delicious lunches and breakfasts. If you prefer the outdoors you may order a picnic and relax under the oaks, next to a dam, stocked with rainbow trout - try the art of fly fishing.

Across the entrance to Houwhoek Farm Stall you will see the entrance to go to Houwhoek Inn. The Houw Hoek Inn is the oldest licensed hotel in South Africa. The existing ground floor dates back to 1779 and the adjoining old farm building has been restored into dining- and conference rooms retaining this original charm and character. Enjoy a Sunday lunch, pub, dinner and dance or experience the charm of staying at the Houw Hoek Inn, the oldest hotel in South Africa.

From Houwhoek the road leads to Caledon, from where you can explore the 'Keep it Country Route' or go to Hermanus 'Heart of the Whale Route'.
