Napier: Napier has old wolrld charm ... visit Napier

 
         Welcome to Napier

Napier is situated under the Soetmuisberg, surrounded by rolling wheat and barley fields, at the southern-most region of Africa. Napier is known among many visitors and locals as "The village with the old world charm". Century old cottages blend with modern houses resulting in a delightful rural atmosphere.

Napier was established in 1838, when Michiel van Breda and his neighbour, Pieter Voltelyn van der Byl could not agree where the church of the community should be. Resulting in two separate churches, and two separate towns, Bredasdorp and Napier were established. Napier was named after the then Governor of the Cape, Sir George Napier.

At the turn of the century miners searched for gold on the farm Hansiesrivier. The Napier Gold Mining Company was established, shares were issued but it had a very short existence. At present the town has a population of 2 554 and possesses a substantial Dutch Reformed Church and a street lined with stores and places of business. Considerable quantities of strawberries are grown in the district in the early summer.

Napier has become a popular weekend destination for many city folk. It is not a town of oak-lined cottages and bubbling brooks, but it surely offers visitors true peace and tranquility in a unique scenic setting amidst a genuine kind-hearted, hospitable country community.
