          Welcome to Villiersdorp

Villiersdorp also known as the "The Pearl of the Overberg" it is a tranquil town graced by oak trees and surrounded by fruit and wine orchards. Villiersdorp is the center of a prosperous apple-growing region, which also produces grapes, onions, peaches and apricots.

The Theewaterskloof Dam is a characteristic feature of Villiersdorp. The dam, which derives its name from the farm on which the wall is situated, is the seventh largest dam in South Africa. Its full supply capacity is about one-tenth of that of the Hendrik Verwoerd Dam, which is the largest impoundment in South Africa.

The town of Villiersdorp was named after Pieter de Villiers, a local farmer who established the town in 1843. The De Villiers family in Villiersdorp district played a major part in the development of the area. Sir David de Villiers Graff, who was elected Mayor of Cape Town in 1891 and served as a Cabinet Minister in both Cape and Union Parliaments, founded the town's well-known De Villiers Graaf High School in 1907 with a gift of land and £50 000. Sir David's son, De Villiers Graaf, became the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament in 1957.

The charming and picturesque Villiersdorp is worth a visit. It has much to offer visitors seeking outdoor adventure and relaxation in a beautiful country town.
